Yesterday was beautiful, so my wife and I decided to go for a drive in the countryside. One of the characteristics of the “Bluegrass State” is its historic stone (or “rock”) fences. I am told they were built by Irish/Scots in the 1800’s. Not just stone walls, these were used to fence in livestock. I think they’re charming – one of many nice little features of Kentucky. Being so young, we don’t have many “ruins” in the United States, so seeing something so old yet standing strong against the passage of time and the changing landscape makes me feel like we have some real roots.
