Yesterday at 8am Brush-hogger Dave came over and started brush-hogging my pastures.
Then a little later Brian and Tucker came to take their boat out of the barn.
Our weather stayed cooler and we had scattered thin clouds. We topped at 93º.
Picture of the Day .... ha ha ha.....
Local landowner Elijah Combs Sr. laid out the town in 1824 as the planned seat of the newly established Perry County. Both the town and the county were named for Cdre. Oliver Hazard Perry, a commander in the 1813 Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812. The post office was initially known as Perry Court House but the name was officially changed to Hazard in 1854. The city was formally incorporated by the state assembly in 1884.
Interesting about weird town names....
Speaking of another Kentucky town....
Hell for Certain is an unincorporated community in Leslie County, Kentucky, United States. Also known as Dryhill, the community is 7 miles (11 km) north of the small town of Hyden at 37.222034, -83.377490. The place became known as Hell for Certain because it is located near a creek of the same name.
A mission church sits at the mouth of Hell for Certain Creek at the Middle Fork Kentucky River. The church was started in the early 1950s by the late Miss Evelyn Fuqua, who was a licensed minister in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches.
The area has been extensively mined for coal. The Geological Society of America has borrowed "Hell for Certain" as a name for the tonstein located in the area and throughout the Appalachian basin.
