Odds are, you missed a wonderful bit of Kentucky Derby TV coverage as well as a Valentine to Kentucky: Tom Hammond’s short film titled “My Kentucky Home.”
Yes, things have been mighty quiet here lately. That’s because I’ve been out gathering some awesome things for you.
I spent in KY during the final days of the World Equestrian Games, then I returned home for a couple of days to switch out suitcases and computer thumb drives before a weekend writer’s group retreat to work on the book.
Even though I was in KY during WEG, I didn’t just go to WEG. I only attended WEG for two days.
Now, I realize that some of you just fell out of your chair with shock. Only two days? Out of a week in Kentucky during the World Equestrian Games???
C’mon — y’all know I didn’t spend that week lounging at the hotel pool, despite the 90-degree afternoon temperatures.
Odds are, unless you’re taking a group of people to Kentucky for a specific job – say, to compete or to work — on the 2010 World Equestrian Games, you probably won’t be staying for the entire event.
So, you probably won’t need a house. You’ll probably be looking for a hotel.
If you’re on a budget, you may want to consider driving to what could be called “the outer boroughs” for lodging.
And you may not want to overlook hotels I call “the Mom & Pops.”
After all, you just want a place to sleep anyway. And, FWIW, you just might find some overlooked jewels.
