Re: Kentucky 2017 Part 5

We rented one of these rooms at Mammoth Cave. At first, I saw a big, black, unwanted triangle top right. As I thought about how to get rid of it, I realized it was really part of the picture.

Just outside is a nice patio. Or maybe a deck. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/795/39647122860_1842633695_c.jpg Metal plants don’t die.

When he was younger, he commented on how odd that the ancient Chinese Zodiac would be made up of eleven real animals and one mythological beast.
