Like I said before, how about them ‘Cats! This has got to be the most exciting time of the year for Lexington. Last Friday in the NCAA tournament the University of Kentucky beat their arch-rivals, the University of Louisville, 74-69. Thus, there was celebrating all weekend on the streets around UK. I understand a few couches were set on fire outside, but overall things didn’t get out of hand, the way they did when UK won the championship two years ago.
Then a few hours ago UK beat the University of Michigan in the Elite Eight matchup, 75-72. We’re in the Final Four!
Meanwhile at noon today, my brother Chris dropped into town. He is just here for a couple of days, to do my father’s taxes. Most of the work will get done tomorrow, but we had all the paperwork he needs; so far so good. Too bad the cold weather of this March is delaying the opening of the spring flowers; he’ll probably miss how pretty the neighborhood can get in early April.
