off to kentucky for a day or two- it's a thing we do, our family, when the pressure overtakes us and we need to get across a state line to get some perspective. it's only an hour away, and it's a very rustic hour, going down past dolly's and crossing the o-river- half the time in the rain. it appears it may be that way again tomorrow too. but, i'm glad to say, i'd rather be with my family than anyone else, and, a little rain, this time of year, isn't really going to hurt anything, except maybe our car.

i've been working on the tesol presentation, which, i should say, is unfinished, poor referencing, etc., but is on the web already because that's where i put my notes these days. i put my initials straight on the tree, so to speak. Will print, mull over, & remember where i might have picked up some of these ideas (in this case, siemens)- then go back and make it right. atop this scholarly mess, i have at least marked each page as unfinished...which it is.

leveretts won the bog on thurs, twice, and late, and sure enough, it was probably bruce who gave us the bump. not sure justin, noah, or jose even made it- they do better on sundays. i plug away, alone sometimes, getting slowly better, probably, but rarely winning or even getting in the top 15, on my own. with my own children as typists i do better of course.

will return with a mouthful of mountain accent, if i can find it, and hopefully, the memory of an elvis imitator. these are part of what makes paducah special- like bagels and new york times when you go to new york. the metro section. you can't find it anywhere else, and you better grab it where you can, because life is short, and more of it'll go by before you return.

A change is as good as a rest! I sure would like to see some pictures if you take the camera.
