Why Is Kentucky Blue Grass Green?

Well, we have made it to Kentucky!! It started out 5 am in the morning in the Calgary Airport - and there was a period which we thought we weren't going to be able to take all of the dogs. What is it when you ask some people some questions, the website says something different, and when the time comes, the answer changes once again. "No, I don't think we can take all of the dogs." What the......? In the end, we got Floss, Gin, Craig, Meg and the puppy Finn all loaded. Going through customs was a breeze - they were just impressed all of the dogs were all so quiet they didn't even look at my health papers. We were up in the air by 8:10 am, and landed in Chicago at 12:30. We got our bags and dogs quickly, and got to the rental car. Louanne was the chauffeur for the day. Before we could leave the windy city (and it was windy!), we dropped the puppy Finn off so he could go to his merry way to Boonton, New Jersey. There was a nice lady at one of the cargo buildings that drove us exactly where we had to be, and that was a godsend, since we probably would still be driving around the airport right now if it wasn't for her. The car we got is a Sierra - a pretty nice van. Everything got packed in perfectly - we almost had to put Calvin on top of the car, but thankfully he has short legs and was able to sit in the van as well. Seven hours later, we arrived at Lexington, and it took another 40 minutes before we found the dog trial location. I will fully take the blame for this - too many Mapquest directions, and Calvin yipping in the back made me confused. Louanne is going to stay with Scott and Jenny, and then Calvin and I went to the hotel - I believe it is a 1/2 star rating - oh well, it is a place to lay our heads down.
Today we are planning to go to the Kentucky Horse Park, competition starts tomorrow. First we went to about 4 different banks before anybody took our Canadian money. I told them the bills had pretty colours. Some hosing was done however - for the strong Canadian dollar that we currently have, for $440 Canadian, there was only $403 in US that was given in exchange. I think the surplus went to the fancy brass lamps that were in the bank.
The first sight of the day today was a very large Kentucky man with his shorts that didn't go quite far up over his hips. Please say no to Crack. For the love of God, please say no.
