Waiting for a flight!

Here's a passenger waiting for his or her flight from Lexington KY a few weeks ago. The weather was perfect for sunning between flights!

Martin's Castle Lexington KY

Martin's Castle was built 25 years ago by Lexington, Kentucky home builder, Rex Martin. He and his new bride honeymooned in Europe, where she fell in love with castles. Upon there return to Lexington he built her this replica of a castle, but they divorced before it's completion. No one has ever lived here - It's remained unsold and for sale - Price unknown.
With its dozen turrets, four corner towers and 12-foot walls, the castle is at once a forbidding sight and a vision of whimsy. Unruly bushes grow out of the western battlements, and white cattle graze in the surrounding pasture. Signs posted at the front and side gates to the property warn trespassers to stay away. But every day tourists including myself stop and pull out cameras to take snapshots of the unexpected sight among the rolling horse farms.

Canadian Tire!

On my return trip to Atlanta this week I happened on some tires headed for Canada.

Titan Tire Corporation, a subsidiary of Titan International Inc., shipped its first giant 63-inch off-the-road (OTR) tire and wheel assemblies on July 29, 2008. These tires, each measuring nearly 14 feet tall and weighing approximately 12,500 pounds, are being shipped to Canada's oil sands for use in mining applications.

The roofers started at 8 AM and were finished at 6 PM. They left the dumpster overnight and allowed me to throw away any thing I wanted!
I took full at advantage of that situation and cleaned my garage/basement throwing away twelve years of stuff!
We love the new three tab shingles!

On with the new roof.

Rear roof almost finished. Once completed the painted all the stand pipes black to match the new roof.

Off with the old roof.

This is a picture of the rear roof being removed.

Mr.Trend Setter

Here’s Judd looking totally dapper while touring the sights in St Augustine FL this past weekend.

I Hate Their Guts

While vacationing in Florida this past weekend Judd, June and Beth happened upon this needle point in a museum in St. Augustine and for some reason thought of me, lol!
I have put in a formal bid for one million dollars to purchase this needle point and if that fails have asked Santa for it!

Judd and June in Florida

I’m posting this without the approval of the Sarc Family Blog sensory board. This very well may mean that I will suffer monetary fines, be blacklisted and be forced to take it down but I thought it was pretty darn cute, lol!!!
Love ya's.
