From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the pleasure of introducing y'all to my beautiful hometown of Augusta, Kentucky!

Although I cannot promise that yours truly could ever be coaxed out of retirement, it is also true that I cannot promise that these hoops are hung up for good. Until then, remember me well whenever you hear: "The sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home..."
