Happy Retirement

This is just one of the faces in town last weekend to celebrate her granddaddy's retirement.  I hadn't met the family until just a few minutes before the banquet began.  But what an incredibly sweet family they are.  The love, honor, and respect they demonstrate toward one another was inspiring.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Lots of rain then.  Lots of rain now.  Lots. 

The year was 1979. I had  purchased my first SLR (Pentax K1000) and was in a photography class at Bellarmine College in Louisville.  Eager to practice what I was learning, I headed out with friends to The Great Balloon Race which kicks off the Kentucky Derby {cue  My Old Kentucky Home}.

But morning came early, and it was cold.  And it rained.  And rained.  And rained.
