>From the desk of the Mysterious Stranger…

>I am thankfully ending a 3 1/2 month stay in the Lexington Kentucky area. If you’ve never had the pleasure of going to Lexington, let me describe some of the excitement.

Driving – I have never seen a city where so many people have driver’s licenses that honestly don’t deserve them. They enter a highway at a top speed of 45 m.p.h. until they are just to a point of causing an accident, then they speed up to normal speed. If there is any type of weather condition (snow, rain, ice, fog) you can expect to see an accident every 2 miles with everyone slowing down to get a good look!!!

Horse Fences – If I never see another white horse fence again in my lifetime, it will be WAY too soon.

Clothes – I personally believe that you are not allowed to live within a 30 mile radius of the city unless you own at least 5 articles of clothing that are blue and have the word “Kentucky” or “K” on them. If you don’t have enough, just pull into you nearest gas station, supermarket, restaurant, etc. and you can buy some. (as a side note, unless you know the names of the starting 5 on the basketball team, their shoe sizes, and what they ate for breakfast, don’t begin to start a conversation.

Smoking – This must be a regional pastime. It has to be one of the few places left in the United States that practically everyone smokes…in restaurants, bars, factories, inside, outside, you name a place or a time and I will show you a group of smokers.

Enough griping for now….
