HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY FROM CHARRED OAKS INN!

July 4, 2019

 

 

Here in the Greater Lexington area we are blessed with some pretty spectacular scenery:  beautiful rolling fields dotted with even more beautiful horses and fine looking cows; farmland planted with soybeans, tobacco, and corn; big white fluffy clouds shadowing miles and miles of black and white board fences; and stonewalls as far as the eye can see.  Some of these farms and walls date back to the 1700s and as we drive around on these scenic routes like Old Frankfort Pike, Pisgah Pike, Ironworks Pike and Paris Pike to name a few, for some reason, I always recall the lyrics to a Rodgers and Hammerstein song, "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" ... somehow they just seem to fit.

 

There's a bright golden haze on the meadow
There's a bright golden haze on the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye
And it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky
Oh, what a beautiful mornin'
Oh, what a beautiful day
I've got a beautiful feeling
Everything's going my way
All the cattle are standing like statues
All the cattle are standing like statues
They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by
But a little brown maverick is winking her eye
Oh, what a beautiful mornin'
I've got a beautiful feeling
Everything's going my way
All the sounds of the earth are like music
All the sounds of the earth are like music
The breeze is so busy, it don't miss a tree
And an old weeping willow is laughing at me
Oh, what a beautiful mornin'
Oh, what a beautiful day
I've got a beautiful feeling
Everything's going my way
Oh, what a beautiful day

 

Enjoy your Fourth of July!  May it be a beautiful one for you and yours!
