I just had to take a picture of my Kentucky tote as I think it really is a work of art. I found it in the February issue of Kentucky Monthly magazine:) It appeals to me because it has so many places dear to my heart. Check out the guy in the coonskin cap! Should be fur felt, per Mr. Boone! See Mammoth Cave on the left? I spent the first 5 or so years of my life there. Not in the cave but in a little house close to it. Of course there's Churchill Downs and all the other landmarks. Makes me sort of homesick!
I've decided to not try for the Kentucky Book Fair this year. I'd love to go but felt a little nudge telling me not to. With one book coming out and another due, I won't have time for trips. I do have to return next year as I have a second date with George Rogers Clark at Locust Grove and must also mosey up the Ohio River to Fort Steuben for some research. So much to do, see, read, write - and so little time!
So this time next year, Lord willing, I'll just grab my Kentucky tote and go!
