635. A nice night considering it is 81 degrees.

Had a perfectly swell end to my day with drinks at Amici with Bobby S. and Ken H. I had a peach/ginger Sangria - something different and light. Then I met my friend Craig for a walk around Garvin Place and Ormsby Avenue. He lives in the old Mayflower Hotel, shown at right, a 1920s beaux-arts style once-fashionable hotel just outside of downtown in Old Louisville, now converted to apartment homes of various shapes and sizes. Its most famous visitor was President Harry S. Truman.

Louisville, Kentucky, United States
Never married, liberal Democrat, born in 1960, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
