Had a quiet weekend. Nice Valentines not doing much. Watched UK get beat. Took my Mom Valentine candy and flowers, my Aunt in Lexington the same thing. Joe gave me the sweetest card and a set of weights......? And I gave him the nicest card with the Winnie the Pooh quote (which I read in AOL-J land, but could not remember who later!) that goes, "If you live to be 100, I want to live to be 100 minus one day...."
Then we went to Louisville to see Bridget, who had food poisoning late Saturday night! Scott ended up having to call an ambulance to take her to the ER. Poor baby. She was recovered by Sunday, when we saw her.
On the way to Louisville we went to Buffalo Crossing. This is a relatively new place that is located in Shelby County way out in the country. It is a cross between Cracker Barrel and Huber Farm. (those of you who live in Southern Indiana will know about Huber Farm). It was so bitterly cold that we could not explore the outside exhibits. On a warmer occasion we will take a trolley around the area and pet a buffalo! There is a huge outdoor fort for children to play in addition to a playground that is colossal! A string of small log cabins surround the main building which appear to house arts and crafts plus souvenirs for sale. We bypassed it all and headed into the main building for a late lunch.
The inside was set up like a Cracker Barrell....desgined and decorated by a taxidermist. It was as repulsive as it was fascinating. A bear and a cougar perched on a platform watching us eat. On the opposite wall was a majestic twelve point buck. The head and neck the size of half a large man! Every part of the buffalo was sold, a skin for $1500, horns for $25, take home buffalo steak....$10.50.
The poor buffalo were even stuffed. Good Lord.
