Alex has found the world of Webkinzs and I may never get my computer back. He has been playing for days now and if your friends have webkinzs then you'll can chat together. It is interesting but I can see it becoming an obsession. Tomorrow marks the beginning of Derby festival. Thunder over Louisville is a huge airshow and then one of the biggest fireworks show in the country. Thousands and thousands of people come to see Thunder Over Louisville. There are signs like the one above all over down town Jeff.It is insanity. One of the two bridges that connects Jeffersonville to Louisville, KY will be closed starting this evening and all day tomorrow. The fireworks are launched from the bridge. Traffic is stopped on the surrounding expressways and the other bridge during the fireworks. Traffic is so bad after the fireworks that a normally 15 minute drive will take almost an hour. Don't even think about trying to go across to Louisville.The Ohio river is over flood stage so some of the prime viewing areas are not available. We are so close to the bridge that we can see all of the high fireworks from our yard. The jets that fly over the river during the airshow, turn north to head back and pass right over our house. They have started practicing today. The jets fly very low, Hutch is scared to death of the noise. We are homebase for the family tomorrow.
They will park here and walk down to the river. We are going to grill out, have beer and ice cream and cake. John will be 42 on Saturday. Sounds kinda of strange to say that I am married to a 42 year old man. I tell him every year, that this may be the year that he becomes too old for me.
