June 25, 2010---On Fridays the 4mcgees will be seen wearing red in support of our troops.
We took a drive to the town of Marion, Kentucky located in Crittenden county. A very nice, small town that is almost like a step back in time. Neat old stores with friendly people. The Amish community is located in rolling hills just north of town. It was a beautiful drive and we enjoyed visiting with some of the locals. They still use horses to work the farms and provide transportation pulling carts and wagons. Saw a lady cutting the grass in front of her home using a horse to pull the rotary, riding mower. The people are great craftmen. The furniture they build is really wonderful.
For the evening activity we drove about 12 miles from Green Turtle Bay in Grand Rivers to the Town of Draffenville.
Kentucky Opry is located just north of the small town. Don't let location fool you. The show is outstanding. Clay Campbell does a super job working with young folks to develop new talent. The kids ranged from 6 years old to young adults about 20 years old. The support band is great and those young people can really sing and play various instruments. What a terrific two hours of entertainment.
