Here's Kevin sipping bourbon at the Maker's Mark distillery in Kentucky.
I was amazed that they still use these old, worn wooden vats.
And yes, I had a sip of bourbon, too. It was an interesting tour. Getting there via our GPS was even more interesting, though. Our GPS took us the shortest route and, hence, a little off the beaten path. Well, actually the path was pretty "beaten" by other people using their GPS's.
Kevin wanted to turn around a couple of times but by then we were only 10 minutes or less from our destination, so why not find out where we end up? And, as it turned out, we were amazed to find ourselves at the Maker's Mark distillery, which is what we were aiming for!
The route we took was through real Kentucky back country. What was most amazing was that the road, as narrow and curvy as it was, was nicely paved! Had that been Saskatchewan countryside, we wouldn't have even been on gravel! It was very strange and we had our doubts, but it worked out in the end. It felt like an adventure and there was bourbon at the end of it, so all was good.
That was a little travel story I hadn't had a chance to tell yet.
So ... back to real life ...
Today was a good day. When you're not getting poked with sticks and squished, it just HAS to be a better day.
I got in almost a full day at work and I felt good while there ... and felt productive. It was good. I met up with Bonnie and Cheryl for dinner and drinks at Earl's after work, which was a real treat! It's something we always plan to do more often but there had been a bit of a gap. It was lovely. I even had a beer, which perhaps caused the one hot flash I had while at the restaurant. It wasn't a real bad flash, though, so that was okay. It's the first boozie beverage I've had since the red wine incident a couple of weeks ago.
Then I talked to Meghan tonight! She says she loves the Liberty of London clothes we got for her in Kentucky. It was so fun to shop for her and we're glad she likes them and very glad they fit her perfectly.
Now ... to bed. I want to be able to get up early enough to see Alexa dance tomorrow at 9:20 and then I have my first massage at 11:30. It should be an interesting Friday.
