We all breathe a big sigh of relief when park operations turn to "weekends only" around here.
Those first few weeks there are always a bunch of trips to hear about from various staff members. In the past couple of weeks, several families visited different parks in the region.
Some pals from various departments have also sneaked away for day trips.
The Security and Games department heads enjoyed a day at Patoka Lake:
Looking a little cozy?
A bit of fraternization, even?
Not to worry, they're a HoliCouple.
Two years ago, Chris even proposed to his beloved via a park security camera (how could April resist that kind of romance?). Their one-year wedding anniversary is coming up soon.
Plus, they had plenty of chaperones...
... nothing like a bunch of security staffers to make you feel safe.
(Once they figure out which side is "up.")
Someone else is out pawing around.
Yes, we've heard again from Holidog.
He'd emailed us a while back about his upcoming travels.
Holidog is back in touch after a brief jaunt.
Poor pup nearly got in trouble for trying to walk out of a convenience store with a Pepsi (without paying).
In his World, after all, they're always free.
Heading eastward, Holidog was in search of "the big stick" he'd seen long ago on a postcard.
I had planned to bark softly and carry that big stick. I had to ask a nice lady for directions once I got to Louisville. I think she found me to be quite fetching.
Holidog was impressed to find out the giant bat at the Louisville Slugger Museum is 120-feet tall, which is taller than The Raven and The Legend. (But not nearly as tall as The Voyage will be!)
Meanwhile, our curious canine is still sniffing around...
I can't wait to find out where they keep the giant Frisbee!
