Dodging the Roadkill: The Pig

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCadiz, KY – I’ve spent several days this week, riding the Harley around the beautiful Lake Barkley area in Cadiz, Kentucky.  If you’ve never had the opportunity to ride through here,  I would highly recommend you make it a point to do so.  

You’ll find the Natchez Trace Parkway that runs through the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation area and beautiful Kentucky back roads to travel.  

The fantastic Barkley Lodge and Kenlake State Resort are must see destinations!

As I was riding in and around downtown Cadiz, I kept noticing these pigs.

Guthrie KentuckyGuthrie, KY – As a part of its annual Heritage Days celebration, the town of Guthrie Kentucky staged a wonderful quilt show that was held at the Guthrie Senior Citizen Center; the show is always my favorite part of the Guthrie Heritage Days.  I have attended this show for several years and always discover and something or someone, that is new and interesting.

I was greeted when I arrived at the door by Helen Bellar who is the coordinator for the show.  She was delighted to show me a special exhibit by Doris Kelly’s Art III class from Todd Central High School. Students Cassie Hanners and Terese Rudder had created a quilt block which had won a First Prize and now resides in the Quilt Museum in Paducah. This is quite an accomplishment for high school students and is sure to be envied by many adult quilters.
