Another Trip to the JP or How to Get a Free Murray Ticket

Had a pleasant Southwest flight to Nashville and picked up my Enterprise Rental. A brand new Ford Focus. Nice looking and nice driving style. Oh 90 mph on I24 was a bit much for its handling and weight in the wind that night, but it handled 75 well. Only downer on the drive to Kentucky was a federal licensed car tried to slow me down, speed up, pass, and slow down from Cheatam to Clarksville. Dadgum government always messing with you...stopped at the Cracker Barrel in Hoptown for a light dinner of beans and greens washed down with sweat tea. Ah, sweet tea the pop of my youth. I don't drink much sweet tea at home and very rarely drink pop, but when back in the JP I enjoy my sweet tea. Unless of course the wife is with me.BTW, when did the state police decide to stop enforcing speed limits on I24? I am very happy they don't but remain surprised that I never see any troopers. The purpose of the trip was simply to see how mother and father are doing. Dad has had a couple of brain injuries and mother is the primary care giver so you don't want too much time to pass without checking in and evaluating the situation. Given it was basketball season I also thought I would go to some local games. So on Tuesday morning I checked and the Murray State game Saturday was sold out. SOLD OUT! WOW. That is just great. Then I learned my high school was playing in the State A Classic tournament, so I wouldn't see them. I settled on a Mid Continent University game scheduled on Thursday night. Mid Continent is the old Mayfield Bible College which is really the old Clinton Bible College founded in 1947. I actually had forgot it existed until sometime in the 80's when I drove by their new campus in Hickory. Very nice. Very nice indeed and the skylight that shoots up to the heavens is a nice touch as well. So Thursday night rolls around and I time the drive from Concord to Hickory to arrive just at tip off. When I got there, this is what the gym looked like.
