The highlight of my visit to Kentucky, was a trip to the Rosemary Clooney house in
Maysville. I called Eric while I was inside and said "Guess where I am"? When I told him, he said "hey, without me?"
I bought him a top hits CD. My son loves the old artist that he grew up listening to.
My kids all knew the words and music to the old songs, and still do. They usually know who they are listening to without the announcer telling them.
These dresses were in the museum. You could buy this DVD, but it was $20. I think I could buy it anyplace cheaper. I could have the CD too, but it helps the upkeep on the house.
The Stephen Foster show was very good, but I have never been so hot and sweaty.
It was almost 100 degrees and it started at 8:30PM. The costumes were very pretty.
The Days Inn we stayed at left much to be desired, and I wrote to them to tell them. The pool was green, and the hot tub was empty and all black. I know Days
Inn is not the top of the line, but the standards are better than this one in Bardstown. At least, the rooms were clean. The owner lived in the unit next to ours and they had a full size stove in the room. They left the door open a lot and you could see right into the not very clean room. Not exactly what you would expect in the center of a Motel unit. Our friends booked it right through the Motel, so you
could not cancel without paying $25 per room. This also is not the Days Inn policy. Hope they check it out now.

Glad you had a good time. Too bad it was so hot. You know how I hate the heat and probably would not even have I love that house!!! I want to be Rosemary Clooney and live there. :-) Plus I would get to be Bing's girlfriend and sing...Snow, snow, snow, I am jealous Eric. :-)

Love and hugs,

What a wonderful thing to get the opportunity to do. I love Rosemary Clooney. Her songs take me back to my childhood.
It sounds as if you had a wonderful trip.

Too bad it was so warm, but you stayed, so it must have been worth it. And too bad the swimming pool was green; that was not very inviting...
