Family Time

We arrived at the Kosciusko County fairgrounds in Warsaw, Indiana, around 2:30 p.m. Had a good drive up from Red Bay, Alabama yesterday. Drove the Natchez Trace yesterday and it was beautiful as always. We were on it till almost dusk and I have to say I had forgotten how beautiful the drive is at that time of night. We don't normally travel late in the day anymore and we usually miss a lot. We saw several flocks of wild turkeys with as many as 20+ animals. Saw a small group of deer by the road once. Fortunately they didn't get spooked.

We spent the night at the Cave City, Kentucky, exit off I-65. Got in early enough to get to bed at a decent time, so we had a good drive today. Not a lot of traffic around Louisville, but had more in Indianapolis. Fortunately that is an area we know well, so traffic there doesn't bother us.

This afternoon my niece Kellie came by on her way to the Y for her workout. She is living back home with her Mom and Dad in the same woods where Mom and Dad now live. The woods is about 7 miles south of Warsaw, so this is a good place for us to stay. My parents also stopped by after supper to visit and catch up on our last visit with Ronan. Mom and Dad are going to help with the dogs tomorrow while we are with Terry's family. His Aunt died on Monday and the calling and services are Friday and Saturday. She was a twin to Terry's Mom. So we will be busy the next couple days. Tomorrow is my Dad's 83 birthday and my sister and I are taking them out on Saturday evening to celebrate.

Till next time. . .
