  • Lost in LaRue - September 7, 2016

    Rainy days are for reflections. Literally. I love reflection in photography. After a rainstorm I find myself looking at puddles to see what the view is looking at the world backwards and upside down. A while back I saw a photograph on the cover of an album that really caught my attention. Granted it was much edgier than mine because the guy was wearing jeans and boots, not fancy duck flats and Capri pants. But nonetheless, I’ve wanted to try to take a reflective photo and when I spotted a rather large puddle on Brooks Road I figured I’d give it a try.

    Thought for the week: The best way to be happy is to turn the negative into positive. Don’t let anyone steal your joy and be thankful for what you have.

    I’m having big email issues and that is why I haven’t had a Hodgenville News column or Cooking Corner in recently. It says it was sent, but I don’t find out till past the deadline that it is stuck out in space somewhere. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

    Congratulations to Larry and Vicki Curry on their 40th anniversary on August 13th.
