Unexpected Results

My one day at the Lexington Public Library turned into a half day, as we were challenged by parking, walking and just about anything else you can think of.

First, Lexington is taking on an extensive city-scaping project in preparation for the 2010 Alltech Equestrian Games in September. [Note to self: Stay away from Lexington in September.] That meant that is was nearly impossible to get near the library to park in their garage. It means that we parked over at the bus station UP the hill and two blocks away. In the sun.

Second, DH said it was nearly impossible to walk around town. He did manage to take a tour of the Mary Todd Lincoln House (actually the house she grew up in) which he found interesting. Did I mention Mary Todd Lincoln is related to me?

So his walking tour was abbreviated, he did some research in the business section of the library, and I grabbed some more obits and marriage announcements. Even though the air conditioning was working in the library, the third floor was a bit warm, and we were both happy to call it a day. Lunch was at a pizza place called "Old Chicago" and the pizza was great. Um. So was the beer.

Today is checkout and cemetery day. I'm hoping I can get him out early before temps hit the upper 80's.
