Back Home in Kentucky

It has been over four years since Lisa and I headed to Hanover, Pennsylvania for her first travel job. Since then we have been from one end of the country to the other and the adventures we have experienced traveling have been some of the most exciting of our lifetime.  I have blogged almost 300 articles telling stories of our time on the road, living in an RV, the people we have met, the friends we have made and the places we have seen.  

When Lisa’s second year working in Cambridge, Ohio came to an end in late August, we were excited to get home and spend time with our family.  Our first thought was to be home for a month and hit the road again, but being home this time just felt different – we did not want to leave.  So, we have made the decision to stay home through Christmas and then let God lead us to where or what we do after that.  

Lisa is now doing embroidery jobs here at home with her new embroidery machine and is open for business and I am trying to sell my book, A Glory Denied, which can be purchased at http://www.aglorydenied.wordpress.com to offset our income loss.  We have learned that money means very little compared to holding our grandchildren.

I will continue to blog our new adventures, only these will be here at home.  Owensboro, Kentucky may seem like a boring place compared to Gettysburg, Arizona, California and other places we have lived, but we think it is the most beautiful place on earth and, to be honest, our home has been the location of our greatest adventures – raising our family and building our lives.  

We will probably hit the road again sometime after the first of the year, but for now… it’s good to be home.

A Glory Denied

Finally, I am able to announce that my book, A Glory Denied: The Story of the 1967  Owensboro High School Football Team will soon be available for purchase. I am anticipating a launch date of October 12th.

In the meantime, those who wish to pre-pay to reserve your copy may do so by going to http://www.aglorydenied.wordpress.com and I will mail you a copy asap. Books are $20.00 plus $5.00 for shipping and handling.  

For those in the Owensboro/Daviess County area who wish to avoid shipping and handling costs, I will be selling books at the high school on October 14th and 21st prior to the OHS football games.  Weather permitting, I will be set up near the old OHS gym near the corner of Frederica St. and Ford Ave. 

Lastly, I will be speaking about the book at the Owensboro-Daviess County Public Library on Wednesday November 2nd at 6:00pm.  I will have books available for sale at that time as well.  

Thanks for your interest in this book and the incredible story of a football team whose dream of a state championship was taken away due to no fault of their own.  Theirs was A Glory Denied.

Thanks!
