The score!

Yep, every once in a while, you score and score real big!  This is from a little drive I took back on Oct, 30th;)

It involved a beautiful drive to Beattyville,KY.  While the drive along windy roads, being ferried over the river, trucking along the river, going over a mountain, and driving beside, over and below train tracks was exhilarating, the real joy of the trip was what I brought home as you can see from the pictures!

The Valley View Ferry has been in operation since 1785 and is Kentucky's longest running business.

On board the ferry.

In the cute little town of Ravenna

Sun peeking over the ridge.

Driving along a stream.

There be cows in dem dare hills!

To the other side of the tracks.

Under the tracks.

And every once in a while, you see something a little 'off the wall'.

Met Bill at the end of the day at Regatta Seafood in Lexington Green.
 The booty.............
Bill picking out an egg for breakfast the next morning.

Don't you just love farm fresh eggs?

And Kentucky grown sweet taters?

And what is that in the back of my truck the next morning?.......  Oh, just a couple hundred pounds of sheep wool!

Wow, that is about 95lbs more than I would expect you to buy! Good for you! I am sure we will be hearing more about it in the near future!

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
