DeKalb County Fair: Alexandria, Tennessee

Alexandria is home to the DeKalb County Fair, known affectionately as the "Grandpa Fair of the South" (follow this link to learn about the fairgrounds). Jack and Faye came by on a cold Sunday after attending church to open up the Kenneth Sandlin Center building for us. It was warm inside and there was a stove that Brenda used to cook. It would have been a miserable night if they hadn't opened the building for us.

Is Blackie OK?

After Blackie had started limping we took him to Rock Bottom Stables to rest. The crew had also rested up and now it was time to get moving again. The question on our minds though was if Blackie was going to be ok. The Rock Bottom Crew accompanied Bill and Blackie on their first trek since he had first started limping.

Bill and Blackie Arrive: Hendersonville, North Carolina

Bills ArrivesBill's mission to ride across the country is complete. Well there is no doubt that Bill and Blackie will have new adventures (the planning of such adventures are being worked out), this journey has finished.

I have been fine tuning the site, making sure it can withstand the onslaught of visitors we have been receiving lately. There is more video from my little Fuji FinePix S700; Brenda asked me to skip ahead and put up the wedding videos, but before that the last video was back in Nashville. I'm "behind"; I'm working on that... In the mean time have a look at the pictures of the Final Ride.

Fox News Phone Interview

Today Brenda, Bill, Dallas and I Traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina, to have lunch with Michel. That wasn't what we had in mind when headed out this morning. Fox News requested that Bill come to Charlotte the other day, and Michel came to pick us up and drive us over to Fox's studio. The directions given to him where completely wrong, and so Bill did his interview over the phone. But like Bill says, "crap" happens.
