THE GREAT BACKROADS ADVENTURE, POST #3

Hi guys! We made it to Michigan last night and mom slept in her own bed for the first time in weeks - I think she was happy to be back home; it's always good to get home after being away, isn't it?

So, okay, here are pictures and a few words to show you our trip through Kentucky and Indiana.....{btw, Indiana is the longest up and down state in the world if it's your third day on the road!}
This is Sophie in the hotel room ready for some shut-eye. She was a wee bit cuter {whiter} before her extended stay at the ranch. Mother's already made her an appointment with her personal groomer to get her back to looking like a city dog.
This was a hoot! This lady and several others were passing out flyers around the courthouse square in a town called Brownsville - don't ask me what state, I can't remember....they all start running together after a few hours on the road! LOL Anyway, evidently there's a problem with the judicial system in this precious town and the way they treat the "poor black and white men". I so wanted to stay and wear a placard and pass out flyers with her but my mother was a party-pooper and made me drive on.
One thing that was really cool about Brownsville was the historical markers in front of the historical homes - they showed the name of the original owner and the date it was built. Way cool.
Now, someone needs to help me here. We saw SO MUCH flooding - oh, my gosh, it was amazing how many fields of crops were under water. We didn't get it at first and actually, still don't get it. I don't watch the news or read the paper but I'm guessing it's been raining in Tennessee, Kentucky and south Indiana. Am I right? Someone fill us in, 'k?

There was water along the roadways {backroads that we traveled} like everywhere and forever. It was amazing. And the fields filled with water - that was horrible thinking about the farmers losing those crops.
Very cool windows in a very cool abandonded building in Tennessee.
Another cool window - still in Tennessee.
I love old doors and I LOVED these! Great color, huh. ....still in Tennessee.
This house and the one below............hard to tell if they're living in a "swamp" by choice or if they're in water because of rain. Either way, creepy looking so we did a U-ey and went back and took the pictures:) You could hardly see the house below.
I'm really glad you're coming along with me! Let me know you're here so I will know how many Blizzard's to order at the next Dairy Queen!


xoxo, Jan
