Leavin' Home

When I have business trips to Lousiville, I often fly into Cincinnati and then drive down. It's easier on two counts: 1) there are much better flights/connection out of CVG than SDF and 2) most all my family's in Cincinnati, so I have a free place to stay and get to hang with my sister's kids.

Yesterday's trip added another bonus. The drive down was beautiful. The Kentucky hills were ablaze in color (in a good way, not like the scary mess out in Southern Caliornia). The sky was a crisp, clear blue and the trees were every shade of yellow, orange and red. Just like those jigsaw puzzles you used to put together on rainy days. Even in my sister's neighborhood were traces of beautiful autumn leaves, both on the trees and in the yards.

And I don't have to rake any of them.
