Day 1 of World's Longest Yard 127 sale

Well, we are finally here and Day 1 is over. We are tired and DIRTY! There has been significant rain for the last week. We actually flew into Nashville yesterday, into a significant storm. You know that it's going to be bad when the National Weather service sends out the emergency broadcast system several times along the way!

We left Danville Kentucky heading north on 127. Unfortunately, it was still raining so we continued to drive north hoping it would let up on our way to Ohio. The weather finally cleared and we began shopping! There were some great finds, vintage Alice in Wonderland cookie jar, Fenton vases, 1950's planters, ceramic animals, jewelry and more. We had forgotten how beautiful Kentucky is in August. There are gorgeous green rolling hills, working farms and horse ranches etc. On our first stop, we talked to a man who loves Kentucky and told us that God vacations in Kentucky!! We had forgotten how much people in Kentucky love their state!

We met some wonderful people, some strange/scary people and some who were angry about....well whatever.

We are hoping for better weather and more great shopping tomorrow!
