“We tend to think of age only in time, but I don’t think it has much to do with time at all; there’s a whole load of other things. I’ve met 16-year-olds who are old and 90-year-olds who are young.” ~ Roger Daltrey

 

strange herd

 

Stacy and I were near the Man-O-War/Blazer Parkway area when we simultaneously saw this sight, saying a subtle “wow” in unison, vowing to return when our business was complete. And so we did. At least one of the horses looks as if it was part of the Horses Mania project years ago (the first was in 2000, the sequel in 2010), but it’s possible both horses came from that project. I have no idea what the buffalo is about. I noticed that the buffalo and one of the horses both have yellow eyes. I don’t know what that’s about either. If anybody in the Lexington area knows more about this unusual statuary triptych, tell me. It’s bound to be a good story.

Fall is settling in nicely. It’s still rather warm despite yesterday’s rainy, breezy leaf blowing event. Now, with color in the trees, there’s also color on the ground. It truly is a beautiful time of year which takes the edge off the fact that my fantasy football team is utterly, completely, 110% awful this season. I love playing though. I find the whole process interesting. Angie Bliss Fanning and Bruce McCain got me hooked many years ago. None of this has anything to do with the Buffalo Trace statue in the picture. Right now, in this moment, I’m thankful for all of it. Fall, color, fantasy football, Angie, Bruce, and awesome bronze statues. That’s a heap of goodness as far as I’m concerned.

Who wouldn’t like a place with a buffalo on its cinder-block wall and a chandelier hanging from its metal ceiling? I’ll just leave these here and let ya’ll figure out which “place” they belong to. I’m calling this Friday Fun. Ready? GO!
