An English In Kentucky


















Saturday February  11th 2012    Tim Candler

        Bigger than leaving home is the adventure of returning home.  It was sort of like spring when we left. Today is definitely winter, with cruel wind that cries out for fourteen layers and slippers.  But I have seen where the Palm Tree grows, and where handicap parking spaces dominate, and where people very much older than I can be seen riding bicycles, while wearing shorts and sunglasses in February.

    But apparently it's terribly, terribly hot in the summer months, with even higher humidity readings.  As I understand it, the population number for people soared following those technical developments that enabled the manufacture of window air conditioning units. Which I guess has to say something about what it is we people aspire to.
