Goodbye new friends. In the spirit of going out with a bang, our final gathering featured a flaming sushi roll. It is a good thing I did not discover this delicacy at the beginning of my stay, because it was seriously the most delicious sushi I have ever had, and it would have been an irresistible temptation to indulge...frequently.
Today I completed packing the car...except for a couple of last items that will go in in the morning. I took the photo in case of a flat, thinking it would all have to come out to get to the spare, and then be fit back in like a puzzle. But I just remembered that the spare is affixed under the car, accessible from exterior. The tools are under all the packing, but I think in case of emergency, I would call for assistance. The weather is supposed to be atrocious tomorrow, and I do NOT want to haul all that stuff out in the rain on a muddy roadside!
And here's my last Kentucky sunset for awhile, going down behind a bank of clouds. See that forsythia in the foreground? It is blooming all over the last week or so. Spring has sprung finally. (I didn't know what forsythia was until a few days ago.)
