Guess who finally made it back to the States? Yay!

I had to leave super early to try and make it to Cincinnati before the storm hit us in Southern KY. Getting to Lexington was tough, but after that, it was smooth sailing. Which meant I only had 5 hours to kill.

I went to dinner, took a little nap in the car, called Bassman and chatted for awhile, and spent some time in a motel parking lot reading the book I took with me (the airport people yell at you if you wait in front of the terminal). Finally Fuschia called and said she was standing in front of the airport so come get her.

It was such a treat to see her! She regaled me with tales of food and adventures while we drove to Lexington. Unfortunately, the roads were such that we had to spend the night in a Howard Johnson's in Nicholasville (shudder).

We finished the trip home this morning. Once she unloaded everything, she showed me all her photos and souvenirs.

Needless to say, she is way more ready to return there than I am to see her go. But I am thrilled that she had the chance to have such a marvelous adventure.

Because it's not every day you get to spend the night in a shady Howard Johnson's.

I use to go pick up my husband at the Cinti airport all the time when he was in Memphis (direct flight or something) and I also spent a lot of time in the hotel parking lot waiting! lol. Howard Johnston in Nichlasville! I use to work for Western Union and Liberty was one of my "towns". Have not been there in forever but beautiful little town. I am from Versailles.

The town keeps growing. Not in population, but in ideas. It's nice to see what the mayor has added.
Versailles. The most I have seen of it was in the movie Elizabethtown.
