Sorry she’s a little fuzzy. I’m having one of those horrible “shaky hands” days.

Mailman knocked on the door and said, “Very large package for you this morning!” And indeed – the box doesn’t fit in our trashcan!

What a surprise! Preston said I looked like I was ready to cry, and he’s right.

I can’t wait to get this framed and up on the wall!

Here is a picture of the original statue / headstone at the Lexington Cemetery.



facebook fail day

A lot of us will probably (not) remember Thursday, September 23, 2010, as “Facebook Fail Day”. Here are some tweets I snagged off Twitter before Facebook found itself again that afternoon:

@southboundcat Facebook down and you’re not on Twitter. Options? What is the generic viagra rxmeds cost of a US postage stamp?

@brevitymag Facebook is down, so open a window and shout your status update to the people outside. If they ‘like’ your status, they’ll hold up a thumb.

@jasonpinter With Facebook down, my guess is editors will be receiving tons of buying viagra in canada late manuscripts tomorrow from authors who could no longer procrastinate.

@postsecret BREAKING NEWS: Facebook is down. Worker productivity rises. U.S. climbs out of recession. @OPB

@thedollsays Facebook users are roaming the streets in tears, shoving photos of themselves in people’s faces and screaming ‘DO YOU LIKE THIS? DO YOU??’

@keeganfrank How am I supposed to keep up with people I haven’t seen in 10 years without the friggin’ Facebook?

@billyeichner Facebook is still down!!! If anyone knows that weird girl I went to camp with, please tell her I said Happy Birthday!!!

@celticcycle FaceBook down! Billions friendless! Humans entering outdoor enviroments! Global panic takes over!

@quantumparticle Facebook is down, and I couldn’t care less.

@southboundcat Imagine a real crisis: No electricity, no shelter, no food and online tramadol cod no faceBook. Wait a minute, did I say food? No TUNA? Help!

@Disalmanac: UPDATE: Facebook is still down; millions of Americans moving to purchase real name brand viagra Farmville, Kansas.

the world equestrian games

Send to Kindle

I’m so proud of Kentucky right now. I’ve sat here watching the opening ceremony of the World Equestrian Games. I don’t think I’ve ever been this proud of Kentucky before. I’ve cried, I’ve laughed. It’s been awesome. I stood and sang My Old Kentucky Home, because as a Kentuckian, that’s what you do. I even stood and applauded (I’m home alone) when Muhammed Ali came out. He was in a classic car with his family and waving and looked so proud. People in the stands stood up and screamed and yelled and applauded and wow look it chanted ALI ALI ALI!

I know nothing about this kind of horse showing. But to have it here in our backyard is amazing. This is cialis online canada a first for the US and a first for KY. We’ve been looking forward to this for five years now. Come the end of tramadol fedex October, we’re all going to feel a little empty I think.
