Gas Stations of History:
For Monday’s stuff:
One thought as we leave.
Jennifer says she loves her job. She is now an ICU nurse and is assigned to ONE patient, to whom she can dedicate for her entire shift. She is able to focus her attention. I had never thought of that, but I have never been a nurse either. Funny that, In my small experiences with medical staff, it seemed the nurses had more common sense than Dr’s. Not meaning to disparage Dr’s here.
Below is what is left of a lemon pound cake friends Ann and daisy made for us for the trip (they are in their early 90s).
We left Knoxville headed thru Kentucky for Ohio. Kentucky has
some good memories to us.
The Kentucky Horse Park Museum (super place) and RV park. My childhood horse hero, Man O War is buried there.
The landscape is beautiful as we traversed the Cumberland Mountains and the cattle and horse farms.
I also enjoyed seeing a boulevard named for him. Then there is the original KFC at Corbin, we did not stop this time. Boonesboro, where we have camped and so many other points; we just drove on by.
We saw MANY of these 'mudders', must be a big past time in Kentuck.
Kentucky is where we met some great folks. Ora and Chaplain Mixon, there was Also Debbie, Gary and daughter Terri. Gary was a mechanic, such a wonderful unassuming guy who passed away soon after the visit.
The first city was Cincinnati this is the sky line:
This is th4 double decker bridge over the Ohio River that flows right thru Cincinnati.
We waved at MA and Yaya as we
drove thru. I love the Barns and fields of Ohio.
We choose Van Buren State Park. There is so much
offered at this lovely park, it is also a horse park. We will be here just over night.
