I have switched from WordPress.com to WordPress.org and I am now blogging at www.dalegoodwin.com/ridinglunch Please updates your links accordingly. This page will remain but I have transferred all of this information over. I am still working on the look of the new page and getting everything configured. It will help me have a more versatile page and will be better.
Thanks to all who look here and read these posts. It sure makes me feel good.
I listed a new book for sale on Etsy. I didn’t have any luck before but I am hoping this one catches someones eye. The listing can be found at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17002798
The picture is one that I took in my work town of New Albany. This statue is outside of the public library. It is clearly the best piece of public art in town. I think the book turned out really good and we’ll see if draws any interest.
Now with sound!
We’ve taken a little break and headed to Nashville for a little R & R. Although the idea of relaxing is actually pretty funny when you factor travel with 11 month old twins and a 5 year old! Not to much deviation from schedule is allowed. This is a picture of the world famous Hatch Show Print on Broadway in Nashville. I had it pegged as a must see. It did not disappoint and offered just what I would want – little polish and racks of type and woodcuts. It is actually owned by the Country Music Hall of Fame. But compared to that slick outfit a few miles away they are clearly taking a hand’s off approach. I picked up a few postcards and a coffee mug for souvenirs.
Did you know we have a working letterpress shop in Louisville? The Quonset Hut is located just out of downtown in Irish Hill.
Later tonight we are headed off to a Botanical Garden called Cheekwood on the West side of town. It was our intention to hit it this morning but I appear to have jotted the wrong directions for it. Dinner looks like a drive to the country to visit the Loveless Cafe for some fine eatin’.
Here are more pictures for the trip, including a stop at the very cheesy but nonetheless fun Rainforest Cafe in the Huge Opryland Mall.
