Mary & I had a great vacation! Last Wed we arrived in Charleston, SC and spent the night with Justin and Kacey and baby Luke. Luke is growing up quickly and it was great spending quality time with our first grandson. Thursday morning, the five of us headed for Lexington, KY and arrived Thursday evening. Friday morning, it was off to Nonesuch for breakfast at Diane Caudill's house. Diane is family to us and we had a wonderful visit with her as we chowed down on biscuits and gravy, eggs and bacon and homemade fried apple miniature pies. Then it was off to Keeneland where Justin and I watched Kacey pick the winners in 3 races and walk away $60 + ahead. From Keeneland it was off to Big Blue Madness at Rupp Arena along with 23,000 fans as UK introduced the 2010/2011 Wildcats to a packed house who settled in to watch a scrimmage game. Saturday, it was back to Diane's for BBQ sandwiches, homemade potatoes, homemade sorghum cookies and more. Saturday afternoon we were off to Commonwealth Stadium to watch KY upset Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks - 31-28 (see prediction below) on an interception in the end zone during the last few seconds of the game as Spurrier's bone-head call backfired on him. What a wonderful weekend with little Luke, Justin & Kacey! We had a blast!
