“You will never have this day again so make it count.” ~ Unknown
I took the day off to spend it with Pam Thurman and Barb Plested. In town for a training session, they tacked on a few vacation days starting today. Stacy Yelton and I met them at Lexington Diner for breakfast, then took them to Shakertown before the big rain settled it. Despite the overcast, it made for a gorgeous sky. I learned a lot of things about the Shakers I didn’t know before today. We had lunch in the Trustees House, drove back to Lexington to drop-off Stacy, then made our way to Wallace Station near Midway in time for dinner. We came back by way of beautiful Pisgah Pike, passing some of the largest thoroughbred horse farms in the nation. Three restaurants, four counties, multiple (and quite timely) conversations of great importance, and one day for which I will always be grateful.
