Trying To Stay Cool

Trying to stay cool has been my focus this last week - so I don't have a lot of exciting news to report. It's been in the high 80s here in Micigan so I've been hanging out at my sisters air conditioned home (with pool) in the hopes that it would cool done a bit for the last few days of this trip. Usually I'd be heading north toward cooler climes (that's what the four wheels on the van are for) but I need to be back in Bardstown early next week so it looks like, hot or not, I'll be hitting the road tomorrow.

Here in Brighton it's been nice visiting with my sisters and just taking it easy, even had a nice BBQ & Blues Festival in town.

These ducks are probably descendants of those I feed in this same pond 60 years ago
Lots of good BBQ, but I still prefer the fixings from Eastern Carolina
