I have not posted any of my new journal yet for 2010. There is a really good reason for that. I don't have one. It's still in my head. You know how that goes. And I'm dying to get back to making pages for my online journal class. It's like I've waited my whole life for this class, because I can utilize every last scrap that was too interesting to throw away, yet didn't really "go" anywhere else. The more I dig around for stuff to use, the more I find. It's like Christmas, and a whole lot of fun! Sometimes it pays to be a packrat.
My initial plan for this new journal from the class was to make it like a travel journal, but for all the local attractions near me that I never go to. I think that would be fun. I could easily zip around town and take pictures, grab postcards and brochures, etc. There is a car museum, the Patton Museum at Ft. Knox, local cemetaries, Civil War markers, Lincoln's birthplace, the Coke museum with a giant hand sticking out of the building... lots of places to explore. Years ago, you could drive right up to the gold depository at Ft. Knox. Those days ended in September 2001, though, and they even took down the exit sign on the interstate to indicate where Ft. Knox is.
There have always been a lot of rumors about the gold depository too. There are supposed to be other things there besides gold. Like jewels, documents, and also enough pure drugs to make narcotic pain killers in case we needed them in war time. There is rumored to be an underground tunnel that goes over to the Ohio River and that the gold was taken out that way a long time ago, but I don't believe that (well, I believe there might be a tunnel, but not that they took the gold somewhere else). Way back when, they used to hire local high school football players to help move the gold when they did inventory and counted the gold bars. They don't do that anymore.
Okay, I know I'm just rambling now. I was trying to fill up some of the white space around my blue Monday pictures! Okay, one more picture. This building is in Louisville.
