Good Ole Boys Like Me
Larry Adam's Cabin
Here is a posting dated October, 2005, from my Kentucky Backroads Site:
This past weekend I got to do one of my "get the hell out of town and head to the mountains" tricks. It was truely magical how it calmed my nerves and gave me a chance to just relax for a change.
Friday night I ended up at my buddy Gary Holbrook's place in White Oak (Morgan County), Ky. Our buddy Larry Adams dropped by for a few hours and we just sat around and played poker and swapped lies.
Saturday was another big round of swapping more lies and deciding how to best solve the world problems. Then we went into West Liberty and picked up 5 lbs of 1 1/4 inch New York Strip Steaks for supper.....YEP....I said SUPPER (That's dinner for you Yankee folks). The total cost for the 5 lbs= $30.14 !!!!!! The damn things would have cost around $9- $10 per lb here at Krogers!
After supper, we mosied ( took our time) on down to the Lee City Cultural Center (wrote about it earlier). Larry Adams was to play there with a couple of other fellows, but his accompiant (Rocky Crask) got sick (probably drunk) and had to leave early. Larry wasn't up to playing solo, so we just headed back up to White Oak and spent the night playing more poker.
I should mention here that the other fellows are dedicated drinkers and poker players. They do both things until the sun comes up. I do neither! I crashed out (sober) both nights around 3:00a.m.. And for the weekend, won a little over $100 at poker!
Sunday afternoon on the way home I dropped by Larry Adam's house to take a look at his "General Lee"...his idea of what a Firebird would look like in the "Dukes of Hazzard"! Hell, as you can see from the picture....it kind of looks like the ghost of Waylon Jennings by the car!
Then on the way home I stopped by Glenn Duff's at High Falls (Wolfe County), but, they must have figured I was coming by...so, they weren't home....or hid their car and truck to make it look that way!
When I got home to Frankfort, I got to go out and do about an hours worth of work carried over from Friday night. What a "Reality Check"!!!!
Probably won't be writing for awhile. Next weekend is our "planned journey to North Carolina" so the Varmit and friends can see the Rolling Stones
