Day trip

Day started with a trip to the Bass Pro. Not a Cabela's, but better than most sport stores. Looked at what few guns they had and picked up some cleaning supplies. They did have a couple of nice hard double rifle cases that were built nice and solid. Wandered around and checked out the store for a while, then off to the Patton Museum.

I got a picture of his Ivory handled revolver (not to be confused with pearl handled : )  )


Most of the museum is closed for renovation and expansion. What they had was very interesting. They have lots of artifacts from his childhood on up to his demise. They are suppose to reopen the whole museum in either 2013 or2014. I didn't realize how close it is to Knob Creek where they hold the machine gun shoots. Speaking of which, the fall ones are right around the corner already. October 14 through the 16th. Was going to hit the Louisville zoo while in the area, but the weather was pretty lousy. Can't decide whether I want to go to the range tomorrow, or head down to Marengo caves for a little exploring. May try and fit both in , who knows. Have to see how the weather is and let it be the deciding factor. Dog seems to be doing much better than yesterday. Still not ready for the races, but able to walk and not shaking in pain. Tail is vertical again and wagging, so that is a good sign.
