prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

Trolley Tour of Louisville, Kentucky.

I went on the Trolley Tour of Louisville while I was attending the TMF Meeting. The Trolley went by many sites of interest. We really did not get out out of the bus (except at Churchill Downs). We slowed down enough to take a picture. The driver kept up a constant stream of information. He was good. He pointed out that 98 per cent of American bourbon is produced in the Louisville area.

Points of interest that the Trolley went by.

Kentucky Colonel Yum Center, Louisville Slugger Museum, Mohamed Ali Center (the most famous native of Louisville), Churchill Downs, and a street of magnificent Victorian Mansions.

Big buildings downtown. From he looks of the cement truck they are building more.

Statue of Thomas Jefferson. Another famous Thomas.

Statue of Louis the IV. A Frenchman I think.

Churchill Downs. They hold horse races here.

It was a fun Trolley ride.
