The Illinois State Capitol was quite impressive.
But I LOVE our simpler Kentucky State Capitol better.
My favorite part is the out-door clock!
Churchill Downs is amazing!
We learned a LOT about horses and racing.
We even walked over the Ohio....Our Nauvoo trip was FANTASTIC! But we weren't finished playing with our family until Wednesday of this week. The Pughs stuck around and we toured Frankfort and Louisville too. What a great week with them! We already miss them so much!
6.Yesterday was a productive day. I'm plumb tuckered out from ironing 32 shirts for my husband. While I ironed, Key Lime Pie did 3 loads of laundry, made rolls and cleaned the kitchen. Kotten Kandy mowed half of the lawn, took care of bees with her father, and did Personal Progress. Scott worked outside cleaning our yard, taking care of bees and working on Christmas gifts. It feels good to get so much done. :-)
The first song on the CD is "They Call The Wind Mariah." I remember my Grandma T LOVING this song and asking my father to sing it for her. I think my dad's version is the most beautiful version of this song I've ever heard. And I've heard quite a few. (No, I'm not prejudice.) He also covers "Lonesome Polecat" from the musical 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. He really jazzes it up. I was surprised it could be so bluesy. It works. And I love it. My daughters favorite track is also my parent's "song": "Elusive Butterfly." She instantly wrote down all the words and is trying to learn to accompany herself on the ukulele while singing it. He also covers two Beatles' tunes: "Do You Want To Know a Secret" and "Something in the Way She Moves." All of the songs are done beautifully.
O.K., I am probably my dad's biggest fan. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his music. And I really do enjoy all of his CDs. This one is great too! If you've never listened to my father before, he has a website where you can listen to his music (and buy it too, if you are interested). His stage name is One Man Mormon Blues Band.
