Oh Weaver's is good and has been around forever and ever. Crooked Creek Golf Club has had major renovations and additions to the golf course, it's very nice. There's a few million dollar homes there.

The Chicken Festival is Sept. 25 - 28. For those wondering about the name, the Festival gets its name from Colonel Sanders, he opened his first KFC Restaurant in Southern Laurel County.

London is a pretty little town. Sometimes when we are on vacation, we get off I75 and go the "back way" and we pass through London. It still seems strange to go down through there and not see the pottery barns with the pretty chenille bedspreads hanging outside.

While I don't have anything to back it up, it seems to me that London is rapidly growing and seems to be doing better than other Southeastern Ky towns.

Oh, and I loved the pics. I recognized several places.

What pottery barns are you talking about? I'm confused.

I m probably calling them by the wrong name. Back in the day, many years ago when Route 25 was the main road,l there would be these little roadside places that sold dishes, etc. They would have the chenille bedspreads, most of them with an ostrich in the middle of them hanging on what looked to be clothes lines.

A lot has changed on that old road. Not a lot of businesses left. I guess I75 did a real number on them.

LOL, I am probably talking about way before your time.
