The trip~Part1

Last Thursday, Pat and I went to Indiana to pick up his mother. The trip up there was so good. I drove the first leg of the journey, thru the state of Tennessee over the Rock (Monteagle Mountain) and thru Music Town( Nashville). Into Kentucky we went. At the Welcome Center we switched out. Lovely state, Kentucky is. Hills and horses, cows and corn. A lot to see as we looked out the window. We took a side trip to Jim Beam's and took the tour. It was neat.  We got there at lunch time hoping there was a picnic area there. Not a table in sight. So anyway off we went on the tour. First stop was Jim Beam's house. It was a lovely old house full of antiques.  Next stop on the tour was the bar where a nice young lady was giving out free samples of Jim Beam.  Of course, it is hard for me to resist free anything!  Seeing as how I very rarely drink, and we had not had lunch.... I was tipsy right off the bat! After enjoying the shots , off we went to finish the tour. There was an old fire engine and a hooper shop. There was an old still and lots of warehouses the store the booze. After that we went to a research forest that was up the road and found a picnic table and ate lunch. After a couple hours we headed on our way. Next stop was Louisville, KY where we saw some beautiful sights.  After that Indiana was in our sights. What a differnece! Mile after mile of corn!  No hills, no nothing, just corn with some soybeans thrown in. Then into Indianapolis   . Almost there to the end of the first leg. Fatigue is setting in and so is rush hour traffic. Finally we get to the small bump in the road that we are heading to, Lucerne..... Stay tuned for Part 2........
