My Easter Day today was great! My son and his beautiful girlfriend (pictured below) spent the night and after a leisurely morning with coffee and internet time, I prepared some mushroom omelets and toast for breakfast. He’s really tall–like 6’9″–so he makes her look shorter than she is. We attended a new church today that’s very near our house and it was quite interesting. To give you some background. Although my family didn’t attend church, I attended church with a girlfriend when I was 12. And through the years have gone to a variety of churches…all different denominations…Presbyterian, Baptist, Church of God, Methodist, Catholic, Jewish, etc. I have my own personal beliefs, as everyone does. Anyway, the preacher at this particular church was quite loud and full of spirit. He was so loud on the microphone that I had to plug my ears with my fingers throughout much of the sermon (but I could still hear him). He would start off at a somewhat normal pitch and within a few sentences of each point would be almost screaming. He said that he knows that hell is real because on YouTube he saw a video showing a team of scientists drilling into the core of the earth and their drill bit began to wobble after they were deep into the ground. There are only two reasons a drill bit wobbles…either it is bent or you’ve reached an area without any matter…such as a cavern. They placed a microphone down into the hole and heard human voices screaming. Don’t get me wrong…I’m not poking fun at religion…merely repeating what I heard this morning. Enough about that.
To finish the walking tour of Lexington, Kentucky from yesterday’s post…this is the First Baptist Church. I just LOVE the colors of this church…the pink and red just POP!
Resting and soaking up some Kentucky sunshine!!
We walked through the local farmer’s market which was located in the “Cheapside Park” area. This had been the site of slave auctions and abolitionists’ passionate speeches!
We ate at Cheapside Bar & Grille. Here’s a photo of my hamburger with caramelized onions and bleu cheese!
Next…we went to the Barrelhouse Distillery and had samples of their Pure Blue Vodka, Devil John Moonshine and Rum. Woowee!! We also received a quick run-down of how you make alcohol.
After arriving back at the VRBO, we took our time snacking, drinking and primping! We had fun with our photo shoot…
That night we went to Bogarts at the Crown Plaza Hotel. We got there too early and it was mostly people in their 70’s! Then we went to a new nightclub called “Trust”. It was too hoigty toity…so we went to the Skybar. It was fun, but we never found the bar that quite fit us!
