It was last Wednesday that I took off with friends, Nancy Buchanan and Linda Lee Sharp. Our destination – the farm of Tyler and Libby Riggins near Guthrie, Ky. Libby, who is a sister to Lanny Judd, is also a first cousin to Miss Nancy, whom I’m sure all of you know or at least know-of. We had a splendid two days, traveling the area where the celebrated, Pulitzer Prize winner, William Penn Warren lived and where the 2nd oldest advertisement of Coca Cola is painted on the side of a brick building. I’ve included pictures this week of RPW’s house and the beautifully decorated wagons that Tyler Riggins prepared for us before we got there. We had a wonderful time. Tyler has cattle, peacocks, ducks, a swan and two of the sweetest, most loving dogs I’ve ever come across whose names are Bell and Bubba. He and Libby also have approximately 700 acres of rich farming land that they take great pleasure from. As you drive up to their exquisite cabin/house, you drive under an iron arch which reads LONESOME DUCK FARM. It was all wonderful, even our stop at the South Union Shaker village on our way home. Many thanks to the Riggins’ who kept us fed and entertained. Wonderful people. On Sunday afternoon, after church, I had pizza with two of my favorite people in the world, Miss Hadley Elizabeth Judd and her brother Flint Judd at the home of their grandparents, Patsy and Lanny Judd who is ecstatic that his grandchildren love horses and seem to have no fear of anything. It was so good to see Hadley and Flint and their dad, Kin Judd as well as Patsy and Lanny. When evening came, I had dinner at the Mexican Restaurant with two of my best friends and my sister, Deborah and Sam Keen. Choir practice went so well and we invite you to come for our second practice on Thursday, the 12th at Highland Chapel at 6:00. I think you will enjoy yourself, learning 4 or 5 original songs and practicing traditional carols. Until next time….when we turn another page.
