Foo was just driving through Kentucky, and low and behold he came upon a miniature Notre Dame cathedral! Some day he hopes to get to go see the real thing overseas, but he hasn't quite gotten his passport yet.
Foo couldn't make a trip to Lexington, Kentucky, without a visit to one of the most famous horse racing tracks in the world, Keeneland, home to the Kentucky Derby. He was all ready to start when they informed him that he had to be a horse to actually race.
Foo decided to get wild in style with the University of Kentucky's wildcat mascot. The cat was so distracted that Foo became distracted, too, which made for not the best photo, but Foo did catch a squirrel.
Foo was positioned to take a peaceful photo with the forested backdrop when this large lizard leaped up and got into the game. Luckily Foo is spry and was able to get away before he became a yummy snack.
Foo at first was afeared for this black kitty friend that he had lost his body, but then Foo remembered that the Cheshire Cat always went without his, so the two of them happily posed for a friendly photo.
This great big green dragon was so excited to find a friendly face in Foo that he nearly hopped right off his rock and flew around the place. Foo told him that he couldn't stay long and although there were tears, they parted well and promised to write.
Foo found a sad but important memorial to the fifth worst mining disaster in U.S. history. The concentric circle of headstones mark the 184 men who died in the blast, leaving the town of Rocky Top with only three adult males. Foo makes four.
Foo was looking for some gas on his trip through Tennessee and heard tell that this place had it. Sadly it was closed, but he did find that it was once a gas station and also once a plane. Talk about double duty!
Foo is all about women being chief in the decisions of almost everything, so it was nice to see this statue of famous Tennessee suffragists Lizzie
Crozier French of Knoxville, Anne Dallas Dudley of Nashville and
Elizabeth Avery Meriwether of Memphis who fought for the vote.
