The Party's Over
The reason for our trip to Michigan, the Birthday girl with her new I-Touch.
The weather started getting nice in Michigan so we figured that was a sign for us to leave and head south to catch all the spring rains. It was a pretty easy drive until we got near Corbin Kentucky, then the radio station we were listening to did the Beep Beep Beep thing and came on with a weather alert that said we were heading into a major thunderstorm with some really big winds. It was time to gas up and get something to eat so we made a stop at the original Kentucky Fried Chicken in Corbin. We've stopped here before they made it into a museum, it's an interesting stop if you're in the area, about 5 minutes off of I-75.
I worked with a guy that was born and raised in Corbin Kentucky, his house was behind the original Cafe and restaurant. He told me when he was a kid he would sit out on the back steps at night with his dad listening to the Kentucky Wildcats Basketball games, a couple of nights a week as soon as it got dark they would see the Colonel sneak out of the back door of the cafe and cross over to the Widows house a few doors down the street, true or not who can say but my buddy swore to it till the day he died. Or maybe the Colonel was just being an innovator again and starting home delivery.
Mean while we're back in Knoxville sitting out the rain and hoping the temperature will rise a little so we can get out and do a few things.
