June 26, 2010---A busy day! Drove to Poducah and visited the Tilghman Home. This home was built for him to get him to move here to build railroads. He was killed in the Civil War near Vicksburg. MS while serving in the Confederate Army.
Drove to Draffenville, KY and played a fun round of miniature golf at Maggies Jungle. They have done a nice job of making the area appear like a jungle.
In addition to the golf course is a one mile trip that can be done on foot or in a golf cart. On this Jungle Run thru the woods, live animals will be seen. Hilighted with a giraffe and a llama. Of course there are goats, sheep, horses, donkeys, ducks, chickens, ostrich, emu and peacocks. Especially fun for children as some of the animals would allow themselves to be petted.
Had dinner and in town and then went to the Kentucky Opry. We enjoyed it so much last night that we had been looking forward to more music. Tonights performances were very different and hilighted with a terrific sax player, Reggie Lafaye. He is a famous sax player who has played in all fifty states headling his own show. What a wonderful way to spend the evenings.
