Very Sad Day

SophieVery sad day for us today. We had to have our basset hound of over 10 years put to sleep due to complications with cancer. Sophie was one of the best dogs that anybody could ever ask for. She was a great companion and was my shadow any time we were outside working in the yard. She was always by my side. We will miss her terribly but we know that she is no longer suffering and is finally pain free. R.I.P. Sophie, we love you!

Long Time, No Post

Our "New" 1968 BeetleWow, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I posted to the site. Hope everybody had a great holiday season! The past couple of months have been very busy. Unfortunately, my mom fell and fractured her neck on New Years Eve and has been in the hospital and rehab ever since. We’re hopeful that she’ll be able to go home this coming Friday. I’ve spent a lot of time at our other two websites, Kentucky Old Volks Home and Kentucky Hot Wheels. I sold our ’74 Beetle project last week (still have the motor) and within two weeks, we drove to Winston-Salem, NC, Cincinnati, OH and Lexington, KY to look for another old Beetle. We finally found one in Bowling Green, KY and the gentleman we bought it from met us in Lexington and drove it the rest of the way home. It was an experience, total white out conditions, snow and ice, but she got me home safely as Lenora followed behind in her car. Certainly a day we’ll never forget. Anyhow, 2015 has been interesting so far, we’re ready for spring and warmer weather. I promise to post more as time permits!
