We went to Kentucky Lake last week to just relax and unwind. Going to places in Benton, Murray and Paducah brought back fond memories from our childhood. TJ moved to Benton when he was in jr high and I moved from Murray when I was in 5th grade. We drove by my childhood home (and thankfully it is still being taken care of and a family lives there), to the lake, Patti's to eat and play mini golf (along with other delightful local eateries), the bison/elk range and the 1800s Home-place in LBL. On the way home we stopped by Bill Monroe's birthplace in Rosine and got to talk with one of his relatives. We got back and celebrated the marriage of two friends, so the vacation/getaway/celebration week was one for the books. Great times!
