Yesterday evening we watched the sunset over the Mighty Ohio River. It was a glorious evening & a magnificent sunset.  

We enjoyed it so much we’re going to gather at Limestone Landing every 3rd Friday of the month.   

The next 3rd Friday sunset gathering will be August 19th. Bring your chairs and poems about sunsets, if you wish. 

There may even be a game of “Simon Says”.

Maysville Twilight Christmas parade  Friday, Dec. 3 beginning at 7 p.m. to officially start the holiday season downtown. A highlight of this year’s parade was the appearance of a Multitude of Angels, from some nearly 12 feet tall to others of more conventional heights. The heavenly hosts are the brainchild of professional mascot designer Jennifer Smith, the founder of Avant Garb, which makes mascot costumes. Smith is also the wife of Jim Dougans, minister at Maysville’s First Presbyterian Church.

Here’s one of the big angels we’re making for the Holiday parade in Maysville, KY, under the directions of  Jennifer Lee Smith .

by writing messages of hope on the sidewalk in front of the church. 

The occasion? Chalk the Walk. 

The purpose? To raise awareness of sexual assault and spread sexual assault prevention messages.

Thanks to Dr. Craig Denham for sharing some of his Saturday morning visiting Kenton Pointe Assisted Living Community.  All enjoyed seeing him and Diego!
