"Shirt. I would spend a lot of time at bourbons bistro. And i have to tell you like. I don't think that man ever gets enough credit for what he has done for bourbon Being the first like bourbon. Themed restaurant in kentucky. And you know. I just i just think the world of jason and He would have all of these like the cantors in he'd get these beam decanters he would get all these old cheryl's he would get everything man would never charge you just sitting there and you would just be drinking with him talking you know. Vh would come on sometime. We would just be sitting there. Bourbons bistro or out on his patio be tricking. three kids. nineteen fifties Kentucky tavern and like talking about How good it was in sports and it was just. I look back on that time of my career and i just miss it so much. I miss it so much. But that was that was where i cut my teeth on on on dausi's and it would be it would lead me to meeting random people and parking lots and literally handing over bags of cash. Estate sales you know shown up to every yard sale in the county ghani bourbon and it could take you down a very weird path. I just. I just missed those times. Those are thoroughly. Does i mean yeah. We've been there with jason up in his his Office where all the decanters. I mean he. He's such a great coast and knows all the history and everything. About each one and you he gets one to kendra down and you talk about it for like thirty or forty minutes and then you move on the next one. it's a. It's a great time. But the i mean i i would say bill thomas was probably for for me anyways as gonna use your sherpa. my sherpa you in the dusty bourbons and talking about two great sherpas here. How gosh. I mean bill. Just get so excited animated. You know when he's talking about it and I had the lucky opportunities status house. And you know drink. Some of the green glass van winkle rise from orangeburg and stuff and man that was like the best price whiskey ever ever had in my life and You know some people just like old stuff because they just don't like the president you know but there is something magical about drinking history you know thinking about what was going on. In that time you know what was going on in the world and it's just a fascinating thing and something unique. You get to experience every time you do. And it's also very important for us to talk about the differences in how they were made a lot of these played. A lot of these brands will have the same recipe but we are looking at depending on the generation of the time. You're looking at like different. Water was being used right. So in different techniques for the water at the very basis of the core of like all the all the parts of what whiskey is it was all very different the corn if it was pre- if it was pre nineteen fifties it was it was it was non hybrid corn starting until the nineteen fifties little bit in the forties. You know after we had so many people starving with the with the great depression and everything and the dust bowl Scientists started working on like hybrid corn. Which would basically allow the farmers to have something. That was a little bit more drought resistant. And then so they were breeding corn in labs. You know that would later turn into genetically modified corn and you know so if we're tasting something pre nineteen fifty five Really pre nineteen seventy. The chances are you are. You are tasting a whiskey that the farmer had actually planted the seeds and had developed corn strain in his own or her own farm. And that right there. You know the those are two things. The water. the corbin differently Well the most important factor in my opinion is the distillation technique. It's the fermentation technique. It's the yeast. And of course the would most of the would used for the barrels of basically named elsa basically. The thing is everything. Well i was. I was gonna say would within about the important. If you take all of those things you know of all those things being the most important the would we're looking at i growth. Would you know the the would. That's being used right now for For barrels they're being a plucked on private land. You know there between sixty and ninety years old the the trees that people were cutting down back. Then there's a good chance man that that a human hadn't seen that tree in In the nineteen forty to nineteen seventies until someone hit with a chainsaw or or a blade you know so you're looking at like the very best evoke different techniques on on making whisky and also the renault computers. There were no there not automation. It was humans doing everything. And then you had some people. Like pappy van winkle who actually resented the growth of in the industry to the point where he put up signs like no chemists allowance. There was a lot more attention to human detail than to computer efficiency. Yes so we have seen a lot of changes over the years In terms of like what goes into the bottle of the recipes may be the same. They like to say that a wild turkey and that is true. But there's also been some legal changes that have allowed whiskey to be different nineteen sixty two. They increase the barrel entry proof from one hundred and ten from the legal maximum to one hundred twenty five by increasing it to one hundred twenty five. They could get more volume Basically put out more bottles thus make more money. It also reduces the tax there basically their tax liability. But there's only a handful of bourbons today that if you were to say like okay. We're going back to the laws of nineteen fifty-eight only handful of bourbons. I would be considered bourbon today. Four roses wild turkey. Everything buffalo trace would not be considered bourbon because none of them are going into the barrel at one hundred ten acres mark on the other hand and a and things like a wilderness trail You know those would be definitely be considered you know burr because because you're going one hundred ten so there's a lot of production factors that make this whiskey to me. Always that much more special in also it is incredibly incredibly inconsistent and as i point to tops here in that one over there the enclosures that they used dictate the flavor that we get today. Sometimes it you get a you get a dusty that tastes spot on and it's exactly like it should be or sometimes you get one like i like i had recently with a nineteen forty-five kentucky tavern and I mean it tasted like sweat. Leather and In gross in as because like a gym if you will lie is just like a gym in the inside of the cap if you take a look underneath year so sometimes you see there's like there's some little plastic he kind of like. There's an adhesive there You know if it's not stored properly that adhesive gets into the whiskey and you don't want that it does not taste good. All of those miniature bottles I used to collect miniature bottles and You crack open no matter what the whiskey is. It's it's gonna it's gonna be contaminated from the cap and typically and so you you really do not always get a great experience with the dusty but when you do magical magical so we heard fred's sort of take on that it takes everything rondi is there. Is there one thing that we look at in regards industies. I mean there's would there's corn.

"Beat me on price by four five dollars so that was the biggest hurdle a pricing. And i mean you probably had a few people jumping the bridge and only going across the taxes cheaper so that was the biggest i mean. I work all the time so staffing was never an issue for me so you really had to be the face of that brand for a long time before you started expanding and right definitely gaining that customer base so you did bring a few of your own points that you wanted to go over. So why don't you just dig right into it man The the the buzzword everyone wants to hear from you though allocation the word. If you're playing that drink game at home where you take a drink. Every time you hear the word allocations. Here's your first one way hacia. So you're saying the. I will say they were so allocation. So i've heard everybody say that you know you've got by thirty cases of wheatley vodka all this other stuff kentucky. I mean that's not true. Okay so in kentucky. The way it works is they call saz wreck dollars so saz. Raccoons buffalo trace who owns a variety of brands Fireball wheatley vodka kentucky tavern and the more of those products that you buy you get more dollars towards allocations and Also he that's how you get allocated you know if you're if you're buying a lot of their brands and ultimately they're gonna reward you with more alcaide bottles now with pappy up until this year. That was the only one that they did says dollars on. Strike this year. Blanton's everything weller. They're going to start using a right dollars and the salesman web zero say in what is allocated f thing comes from basically what you spend. I wish i in my opinion is right way. Yes yeah so so back. In the day you used to just be able to order cases of blanton's and all this other stuff and my correct how how did so. I kind of business. Cases of blanton's that's sorta after everything is based off. How much dollars us you spend the more fireball. You sell the more really vodka And in kentucky. It's illegal for them to say. Hey you have to buy this to get this. So that's you know. That's the state protecting the retailer in kentucky and i can't speak on every state but in kentucky that's how it is okay. So it's it's easy yet. It's you know a little more difficult. Would you say to to allegations. Or i mean i was says wreck dollars. Are you saying that that's the money that you use. That's my span on product okay. I'm buying fireball wheatley vodka To fill a warehouse full of fireball. Then you get more size right dollars right. That basically says right dollars equals allocations got. Okay okay got it. So with these allocations. Everyone wants to know. Like what do you feel. As a fair way to distribute them. But what also do you think is kind of an unfair way to distribute those so fair depends on the person. So would aaron. And i'd determinist. Fair is a raffle. The and that's what we do. At the three of our henderson locations we raffled off. You know there's no purchase necessary enter the store We want to be fair for whomever you know to get a chance to win a bottle..

Maybe five to ten whiskey writers. In the world who are trying to do it full time when I was coming in, there was not a lot. And they were mostly Scotch. Rain and so I looked up to like you know Chowdhry. In a historic in also Mike Beach. In on I looked up to those guys, and I tried to follow in their footsteps with summer like the historical stuff while also trying to train my palate in do do tastings. but There's inevitably some regrets and things you should done differently and things you'd have done more. I wish I'd spent more time with Parker beam and Parker with someone I actually did spend a good deal amount of time with to include his time when he was suffering from Al Ask, but. He was just someone. I really clicked within I. I miss him and I. also never had the chance to spend any time with elmer elmer, T lee. but you know so I think those would be the two things that I would.

Barton, and Foro small batch like I didn't really vary out of those three for like six to eight years, and there is like this whole window of stuff that like I completely missed, and it's because I just didn't have anybody to kind of a I was the only one who was really into Bourbon, but I didn't really have a network of people or anything like that and I always find it interesting when we're able to go on, you know the Bourbon or former any of the facebook groups and people were all I K- I just started getting into bourbon like three months ago. House my collection and it's like two hundred bottles I'm just like holy smokes. How do people just like latch onto something and go like so far in that they find like all the facebook groups in just like go go deep so I I wish I would have been able to do that along time ago, but again glad that I'm here now and be able to be a part of this with all you, too.

"Yeah we Like in In Karma might might cost ship groups. It's the stupidest thing in the world. But when when mega ball went from fifteen numbers to seventeen hundred nineteen or whatever? The number is not fifteen anymore. We were all very upset because at diluted our chances of winning stuff so we had to create our own weekly drawing which is I got a Bingo machine. Back their son. Some did our own damn drawing. Because I didn't want split a bottle. Seventeen ways almost fifteen ways but yeah. He ended up particularly in some of those secondary raffle sites. You can lose just an absurd amount of money if you don't really check yourself. Yeah Hey Kenny for introducing me to Raffles Risky whiskey in particular after awhile you you figure you know. That's the reason billing it. I had to delete social media during the week. Thanks a lot after awhile. You end up as early. Uganda quit planned But back to the community aspect of this you know we we look at it as an opportunity as as well to branch out. You know Myself Gotten to know people through these communities and in Your Jeremy. As you mentioned you'll travel you'll go somewhere You know I've got connections now and a lot of states you can. You can travel somewhere. Eno- that you can confine and somebody and you can hang out and have a good time. You don't have to go and meet up at a bar somewhere to go and and hang out and ultimately I don't know about you all. I'd actually rather go to somebody's house and dig into their collection and try something unique than I would just rather meet a put a bar well. It's it's funny we My buddy critic lyman was tear probably six months ago. And there's Three guys here locally. They're a part of the Karma groups that were part of We went out to a bar all meet up in about halfway through my trying that Bob Dylan whiskey. We all that stuff. I hate to break off on that. But what did you think of the Bob Dylan Whiskey? I will wasn't a tremendous fan of grow Sydney like it at all. It was growth about it so there is a okay. So it's it's it's difficult. And they got like the bottom of the barrel of the dickel barrels Because it's like metallic you know there's like there's like this crazy like weird metallic note in there. There was something to it that I had not tasted bourbon before. I don't mean that in a good way and it inspired us. We were Fred you mentioned the Esquire. We were down the road from the ESQUIRE. So maybe that was our problem but we all That that drink inspired me to tell her because the dust bar in San Antonio for whiskey at each of our individual houses. Can we please just go there? So that's what we did. No better than the Bob Dylan whiskey. Yeah I'm sorry. I interrupted you but I had to ask your opinion on it now. I don't totally remember. We're going with that but you're absolutely right. That's sucked Fred. I mean a friend of you if you had enough connections now when you go somewhere that you'd rather not go to a bar and you'd rather go to somebody's house and dive into a you know a weller gold vein or Roy Moore Weller some old dusty Kentucky Tavern or Evan Williams or something like that I've had I've had some weird experiences Please do you. I've had some weird ones But I you know. I'll say that I still like to see what's going on in the town five years ago. I was like I don't want to go to a whiskey bar. 'cause I have everything and I don't want to spend that kind of money and rather just Kinda go hang out and see something else Now I'm kinda going back to the I feel like these. These bars are working hard to promote my culture. What I love and I gotta throw him a bone. I gotta I gotTa go in there and pay my respect to what they're doing so that's Kinda how I think of it now is like I. I don't think of it is like you know. Look at them in their prices. Just what they are if they're price gouging. You know be very vocal about that but in often to like I ended up correcting spelling errors and menus. I mean for God's sakes why can't spell will it correctly it's But I I feel like I have. I have a purpose and I'm supposed I need to be visiting. These great temples of that are bastions to whiskey. And you know if if they invite me and I'm GonNa GonNA show you know. Check it out but indeed do I like go into someone's house and going down in the basement and seeing seeing the collection I mean that's like to me it just it doesn't get better than that. Now what's weird is when like you now. I come in the house. And then the guy's wives down there and I'm like Oh oh and the business guy in the Ascott who'd you agree out? Oh Man can get weird so I didn't sleep on their couch like I'm GonNa go till now. Yeah I mean it's it's fun to look at this and and and look at the relationships that you do build over time Because it does seem like a lot of these hopefully will stand the test time. You never really know Because it I don't know maybe this is another kind of question. Is You know as Bourbon becomes more prolific and becomes more scarce As even harder to find these things and and really I don't know how much bigger these networks that people were creating right now can actually get You can they get bigger or or you feel like you know what I've I don't have anymore room in my life for new friends. We're just GONNA Kinda keep it for me. I mean we. I don't know if we actually call episode this but you said the term finding your Bourbon people For me selfishly. I found my bourbon. People my biggest group of people that I care about is about a hundred and fifty people. And that's about as big as it needs to be in. We're all having like I don't know when this is gonNA air but right now there's this whole bsn. Bourbon secondary market thing going on facebook. We couldn't care less and it's been incredibly entertaining for us because I know because established by community. There's not really anything that's GONNA come out that if I really WANNA try it. I can't try it from a store. Pick that comes out to got a buddy with a bottle of Red Hook that I'm going to see if I can't snail announce it all. Yeah model if you can find your your community than these groups of fifty thousand people really. Don't matter all that much so I guess another question is So you've found your people We already decided. Three's enough we're not bring on a fourth call. Hosa we've got our people but how do you? What would you say is is a good way for people to start getting introduced in sort of like vine there. You don't find their Because you say they're missing connections there yangs of the Yangs of of the Bourbon community to me every every good bourbon connection. I've come into is because somebody was doing something nice for somebody else. You know whether it's you know there's last year Almost city liquor ear had a fantastic Elisa. Correct pick bought a bunch of didn't help some friends that otherwise wouldn't have been able to get it get it and they became good friends. That favor is I've been on the receiving end of that favor from different places all over the country and Great Bourbon connections for me rarely come from trying to proust price. Gouge somebody on a whatever store pick of the month. It is but if you know just be cool with people and treat everyone this. You know what guess Cliche but tree people the way you'd WanNa be treated you'll end up knowing some really cool folks. That's what's that's what's happened me. And that's the advice that I typically give people on between Carmen Twenty one kings. I really don't need to know anybody else You guys can't be your friend. Jammie one of my favorite things is like. I get you know when when when I travel. I do often like to kind of connect with someone. Who's a listener reader just like Or you know. Follow me on instagram. I really do try to make an effort when I'm out to like go hang out with people and My favorite thing to do is like learn about their jobs. You know.
"kentucky tavern" Discussed on Bourbon Pursuit
"Drank so much. Jim Be White Label in college. Oh my God I can't even drink it now like game and look at it because it brings back so many bad memories but good memories but Didn't start getting serious till I duNno after college. I mean my dad does a lot of work for the Bourbon Industry. He's a machinist so he does toland our pair and I would deliver parts to him are for him to the different distilleries in our member. You know just seeing the bottles they would always give him stuff and then I would take it to a vividly. Remember taking like Semalaysia Craig. Twenty one's in Noah Mills fifteen in taking him to college parties in like totally mixing a coke or Ginger Ale and like just had no clue what you know what I had and So yeah just kind of progress from there and then like really appreciate. When I went I went to school at Rutgers in New Jersey. Kinda nobody there really knew it. So kind of preached the Gospel of there and Kinda started really dive into and then I met Kenny and then found out. There's this whole world of collecting and trading and flipping collected. You know all this stuff and then soggy go down that rabbit hole and then I'm like well why don't we? I can't just like have the Hobby. I gotTA start a business about it in Kansas Leisurely. Enjoy Bourbon with friends so Like let's start a podcast but Yeah it's now you know. I'm no one's a stranger to me and so like I've just reached out to anybody that has the same interested in me. I'm not afraid to talk to them and reach out to them. So I've met so many people that enjoy bourbon and it's been like crazy and it's cool because I'm from there when I grew up. No one gave us shit about it. Now everybody gives a shit about it. You know just seeing The town flourished and stuff. It's pretty cool. The absolutely we'll touch more in like meeting New People and stuff with inside a Bourbon All kind of recap mine. I know I've probably said it before. I have the same sort of cone tail as Fred over there. So I joined a fraternity on the University of Kentucky's campus. And I I mean I remember back. It was ten dollars for a twenty four pack of Natty. Light and being an UNDERGRAD. Yeah you always get ten bucks. You give it to one of the juniors or seniors within the fraternity. They'd run out. You come back that's your that's your. That's your drink and for the evening However remember hanging out with some of the older upperclassmen in yeah they were all sitting around drinking bourbon and coke and back then our drink a choice was kentucky tavern that was that was our Goto and that was kind of like my first introduction. They were actually known as a fraternity was actually known as one of the biggest urban drinking attorneys on campus. I don't know if that was a good thing or bad thing at the time but because everybody knows what happens if you get a little to bourbon drunk when you're little young and stupid but back then it was It was a it was a way to kind of get an introduction to it so of course mixing Bourbon and coke however at the time you know this was also a time when you're drinking not to sit there and enjoy your drinking to consume and and have a good time and you know all that aside you don't feel as bloated when you have a few bourbon cokes after you do have like eight to ten eight to ten twelve beers so it actually made you feel a little bit better going throughout the night and now the next morning interrupted by. Dad's famous line is nothing says on episode. One is if you're if you're drinking beer. You're watching the party if you're drinking bourbon you are the Party so I've always loved that line but anyways so let's go on to the next t shirt but yeah I mean that's that's sort of how it started for me in ever since I did that like I was always one person that was kind of like preaching like always do Bourbon Cokes. During college seemed like the easiest way to do it. Not only that is me and my roommate. At the time we became social shares. Social Chair is a a a nice word to say party planner for back in college in the fraternity days and so our biggest. Actually this is what I truly miss. About College is that your biggest worry is where we're GONNA party on Thursday and Friday night and that's that's what you had to set up and so backed in. Uk was a very dry campus. And you couldn't have any alcohol within south paternity houses at all so our goal was say. How do we have house parties and still serve liquor? And so what we did. Is We get? We got those massive gatorade jugs that you see on the sidelines of football stadiums and we filled those and it was one handle a Kentucky tavern to two leaders of diet coke and so everybody drink bourbon and coke at the parties and that's how we We continued to flourish for a while but after after college than is kind of when the appreciation started I didn't stop drinking bourbon it was diverted cokes and that's where the progression starts where you start getting rid of the coke. You start getting rid of the ice and you start. Learning to drink at need. Old Forester became staple for me Every once in a while splurging on small batch. You Know Fred you you talked about going back to the store and thinking of all those bottles that you could have had my God. Even I went to the liquor store and when I was there buying for parties I would buy probably gosh cases of six or one point seven five liters of of Kentucky tavern every single week. I don't think I even looked at any other bottles on the shelves. I always looked at bigger out work. Could I get the cheapest prior like odds overpriced yet? I mean that was. I didn't really know any better at the time. Indiana's even when I even after college. I didn't really know any better either I I was drinking forwards a small batch. I didn't know limited limited editions even existed until I was working at a company and I. There's a guy that worked there in. We talk about Bourbon all the time. We'd sit there and talk about bottles. We come together in one introduced me to limited editions and this was Twenty twelve late early twenty thirteen timeframe something like that and he's like. Hey I got a few extra things. I'll just tell them that cost because I'm just overflowing and so. He sold me a four hundred twenty fifth anniversary. An old ripped squat bottle. A Jefferson's I think it was twenty. One may be in their all retail. At the time I was just like. Oh Gosh like eighty bucks a bottle. He sure about this and and so. That's that's kind of what got me onto that train. And then of course as Jeremy said you find out about online forums in the whole world of different things. Start opening up to you of things that you never even knew existed. And that's I think that's really where the rabbit hole starts for most of us and I think that's kind of where the conversation keeps going for a lot of us here because the online community is really where a lot of the relationships are built. It's also a Lotta relationships. Go to die and get pig. Let's be honest. There's a lot of butthurt that happens out there so feelings journals vergamo world. What are you talking about? Yeah right you mentioned one thing and then all of a sudden you've got people either hating on your Lovin. Yeah so Jeremy. Kinda talk about your introduction into like the Bourbon online communities so my buddy. Tory said Hey I got this happy. Fifteen finally found a good use for facebook So I got invited to one of those deals saw that I love Bourbon wise was Blanton's and got on there and within five minutes I saw somebody was selling bland's it was dated in like nineteen eighty eight. And I didn't realize the WISC the existed before I drank it though bought that nineteen eighty-eight Blanton's and still have about a quarter of it And really from there. It's sort of just went into a network can almost fall into this accidentally and I'm sure that y'all's experiences a very similar But you know you find some people. They've got good relationships with and now report of a few groups that really proud to be a part of and it's been really cool and you know I've got a network really across the country coast to coast and actually even out of the country just from those stupid facebook groups. Can you in like in most major towns if you need to sleep on someone's couch in your new Bourbon? I'm going to Florida for business on Friday and I am crashing in the spare bedroom of a bourbon friend that night. No way it's awesome. We'RE GONNA be drinking well. Have you met him before in person? Yes a couple of times. Actually I have not picked a barrel together but we got to take part in what to me is. My favorite part about a lot of this stuff is the charity component And there was a guy in Florida Had a really terrible cancer diagnosis and Young Guy. About Twenty one years old twenty two maybe And without getting super deep in the details of it I went down there last year because we raised him bow Seventeen eighteen thousand bucks and I went down there to To go with him to present the money to imminence family and that was the first time that I crashed his Crashes Place that we met that time. Like here's here's a check. By the way. Can I stay? So this is actually the crashing at his house but we have But that's that's always a lot of fun. Of course you know my my wife thinks it's ridiculous but we're in this city I gotta go see this Guy So but yeah you get this network and I'm sure you guys are all the same in that regard you've got kind of people all over the country that you know from random guy helped me fine this thing. I was looking for and of course my my wife would say. Why are you looking for that? In the first place you have two hundred something three hundred but this sounds familiar. Never heard that before but But Yeah it's you know you form these communities we've we've been able to do a lot of good We've been able to do a lot of bad too but But it's a lot of fun and it's a soul kinda separate world that you get to be a part of all around this brown water stuff that we all agree up. I was GONNA ask you talking about like meeting with individuals but do you ever like Like throw get togethers. Were your your buddies that you've met online or whatever you go to a house or you go to a bar. Do you all have like special events or anything like that. So nothing. That's terribly scheduled but.

"Right. He acted a cheating a good sport about that. And chart at that. She died other things intervene into life day is not yet. Delighting to remember that after the civil war clay has put Visteon prepped, you tell us something he had. Birth. Glam vision beginning when he got back from the AM strange enough. How did it? But he won two straight terms and the state out. You'd have told you our goal in the sixty rather than the United States Senate. Then of course, he wanted to take a day of war in Lincoln's cabinet. Got across to Petersburg. He bested Lincoln about getting into the war on dill Lincoln, finally eight him come back about teams to made a major. You a couple of battle. But he found out that the night at work. In our interest and went back to Russia. Where are you? Tonight. He lives I think a candidate for governor. I remember directly later on in his life. Whatever political admissions, he had I think he surely must have known that. He could hardly realize them matter principle and much as he such that only say, but they just. I want to seem the letters that he sent to Charles Dane suggestion himself to the president. I very sure that he cable. Will come Kent. Good beer. Is good to talk about the Kentucky civil around table. It's a great institution that is a great institution now. So let's talk about William towns in for a minute. Who is he Bill as we I knew Bill, and he he was born in Anderson county Kentucky, and that's lawrenceburg, and there's even a historical marker it is birth site. Bill was raised there. He is the only person I've ever known in my life who turned to me and told me of the Mexican war veterans. He knew growing up. That takes it back pretty far. He was born about eighteen ninety. And he died in nineteen sixty four, but he knew just a lot of people who not only Mexican war veterans, but particularly civil war veterans, and he became enamored with history as a young boy, he went to the university of Kentucky. And then the university of Kentucky law school. And began practicing law here in Lexington and practice practice it under a firm called stall Muir, Townsend and park, and they were in the old first national building on main street and upper and he took his interest in history to some significant links one he became a namrd with ABRAHAM LINCOLN. And I think what got him into Lincoln was his friendship with William Barton. William Barton was one of the great Lincoln scholars in the nineteen thirties and forties. He wrote a biography wrote a two volume biography from Kentucky. No, but Barton befriended Townsend, and he introduced house into a lot of people like Carl Sandberg, who of course, ROY. A multi volume biography of ABRAHAM LINCOLN towns than wound up writing a book called Lincoln in his in his wife's hometown, which show is a study of Lincoln's connection with Lexington. And that became a book the university of Kentucky press. Now, the university press of Kentucky published as Lincoln and the bluegrass in the nineteen fifties. And it was a very popular book. When I was a boy. And so those were his major books, but then he also produced all sorts of other side things like a book called hundred proof which were stories of the Salt River. These are stories he grew up with well now, he's from the town that that houses the wild Turkey still. As as the as the as his talk that we've just heard the fragment. He laced everything with references to bourbon whiskey refers to it in their is Kentucky tavern. I think Carl Sandberg would like a little Kentucky tavern of. But Bill became the first president. He's really the organizing a person behind the Kentucky civil war roundtable and was its first president until he died nineteen sixty four. So that's Bill. Yes. And now he had some other connections with ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Will he he was a collector? Yes, linked Konia. He collected all sorts of Lincoln documents Lincoln legals Lincoln signatures. He also befriended as a young lawyer here in Lexington. The the son of Benjamin Hardin helm, the confederate Brigadier General who was. Killed at chick Amata and his his son Ben Hardin helm junior lived south of Lexington in a place still called the helm place was brought up there by his mother who was the widow of general helm, Emily and two sisters. Well, let's talk about Emily for a minute. She has a very important connection to ham Lincoln. She has a huge connection of as do all. These are Emily is one of the children of the second marriage of Robert Todd who was married Todd Lincoln's father her mother died relatively young and Todd remarried, married, Elizabeth Humphreys and from that second marriage. He had multiple children one of whom was Emily. So Emily is the half sister of Mary Todd Lincoln, and she's the one who married Ben Hardin helm, the confederate Brigadier General, one of those interesting things about all this, frankly is who in Robert Todd's, the children of his first marriage all became fundamentally pro union during the civil war is daughter Mary Todd, married, the president of the United States, but the children from his second marriage all of Mary Todd, Lincoln's half siblings. All all the boys became confederate officers or confederate soldiers. All the girls married confederate officers. Two of them even lived in Selma, Alabama in the war broke out stitch together. The battle flag of the magnolia graze from a company of infantry from Selma and both of them attended Jefferson, Davis's inaugural. Imagine that all this kind of stuff in Namur Billtown. He loved this stuff. And it's so much of what he did. Form the platform on which so much. Other work has been done on Lincoln his relationship with Lexington. Which is probably the third most important town in his life. Well, and Phil ends up. Marrying the beautiful daughter of his friend, Ben Hardin, helm junior and ends up living, no less than in the home place. He didn't marry the daughter. Okay. I've been Hardin how junior he befriended. Ben. Okay. Then was a bachelor. Okay. And Ben lived out there. Now, what happened was that built Howson's daughter? Mary Genevieve, Mary Joe Murphy and those two lived in the hell place. I see that works. Okay. I had that MC Steph a little bit. Okay. He Bill basically took care of been helm junior. And Ben apparently turned to Bill and said look at a it's all years if you take care of me, and you know without pensions and without.

Forty five saves to for Cam ward who probably bellied one of the best games of his career. Yeah. And you know, the thing I love about hockey. I think you saw the game the other night to Chris Kunitz have that goal that was at first called no goal. And then it was allowed. They just mobbed him and the same thing for Cam more. They really wanted him to play yesterday because it was going to be a seven hundred NHL game the respect factor for the veterans in the game of hockey is immeasurable. I don't think it's high in any other sport. They all want to have these guys get a taste of the ultimate success. And no Cam was just played played out of his skates. And to have that kind of a poor defensive effort in front of you is pretty depressing. And I know that Jeremy Colloton says he's going to be going to fix that. Yeah. As a former NHL defense. I think he probably has a pretty good idea of what's what is needed. There was some glimmers of of some hope later on season. You know, I I really like with Dennis Gilbert gave him that one game that he played, you know, right gossips and had a great offensive season. Forsling to me, it's still scary. And Carl dalstrom actually played pretty well this year as well. So Connor Murphy. And I thought it was very consistent all year. The elder statesman is they like to call them. Seabrook and Duncan Keith. So yeah, that's something that's going to be a huge point of emphasis because I think both goaltenders could have been even that much better have had some defense in front of them. Well, that's I mean when you allow the number. I mean this year is just been horrible shots allowed. And that was always the Blackhawks teams, they would you know block. They'd would be blocking shots and the other team wouldn't have the opportunity because they'd be in their offense defense defenses. Only interrogate, right. Exactly. Exactly. So we make the transition from the brink to the ballpark. Yes. And so I was joking with the friend. I actually posted on Twitter that inner first official act as mayor elect Lori Lightfoot bounced the first pitch, and as someone a friend of mine pointed out this could be a good sign though for Chicago. It shows that she's a verse two strikes. That I like that. Yeah. That but pretty good. Yeah. So think the sacks are going to be fun this year. You know? Yeah. I do too. Yeah. There's there's a lot of the lot going on there. Because you know, Tim Anderson is really starting to come into his own is he? You know, and I liked Howard yesterday called daddy power. Second child the other day. Couple of home runs in the last two games to to actually I six hits over the last two games as well. Now the question is going to be the pitching. Can it be consistent enough to to make things interesting to get towards the five hundred Mark I know that that's a goal obviously for this team to to improve it in. There's no really room to go anywhere but up as far as the win total from last year, sixty two. I'm thinking somewhere in the seventies. Maybe mid seventies. If things go well, but pitching could be the the starting pitching. It could be the only issue. But I think road down pitch really well the first couple of games Geely don't bump in the road yesterday. And I ran the Lopez has really put it all together yet. And you know, Yvonne Belva is is a veteran presence. And I think Ervin Santana might be called upon here. Pretty soon as well. I think there's a lot to look forward to on the south side. I really to. Yeah. No. On a couple of nights catches yesterday. Well, and and then there's over on the north side. And I tomorrow the home opener Wrigley and. That bullpen. Yeah. It lost a member yesterday with were junior going down to triple eight right to work whatever he needs to work on which is a lot. He went. Yeah. Hopefully, get some innings in down in the Moines. But it's just it's it's been gruesome I mean thankfully with the win yesterday. It's it's just gruesome, I think players will tell you that the most demoralizing types of losses are those that you have a lead going into the late innings Anibal pen can't hold it and gives it up, right? Right. It's it's well, I mean, it's like hockey and losing in the third period. Right. It's the same kind of thing. You've got the game. You've got the game. And then. But well, I mean, I'm I'm -ducted my copy blue, you are to tell you know. I'm there my team and. To see what we'll see what we'll see what Monday brings with the home opener where Lori Lightfoot has a chance to redeem redeem herself. Yes. Be consistent. You know, don't show favorites on one side of the town or the other, you know. Right. I think so the interest of fairplay. Yes. Yes. Really complain about the weather for tomorrow. None opener. No. And you know, maybe in the seventy s that's unheard of for Chicago. That's for sure. Well, and I know, you know, Dave, and I were both talking off the air about trying to let's push spring a little bit here. So he's been posting pictures of flowers on Facebook. None of them that were actually in Chicago. No, I should no way out west and inside in just the amazing pike place market in Seattle. Oh place market. Yeah. That's where that picture is from is that real? Pike place market deli pictures that I ever see from. There are the throwing throwing the fifth as you go on my YouTube page, I've got a video of them throwing the fish. You can see that. Also, the we did that we took those pictures four years ago when we are on our trip up the what a fun place, it's great what a fun place. Now. I'm going to push things a little bit. It's brought on the grill today. I'm not going to be scared off by this talk of intermittent rain showers. This is it's time to it's time to get the process going. Don't you think you can do it? Yeah. With an umbrella. Scattered scattered showers or thunderstorms cook with an umbrella. Well, thank you. Raining. It's worth it's worth. Still cook outside, but you're not holding umbrella. You could I mean, you know, if you're worried about the rain. Trying to protect you. Not that the. I thank you, Mr. meser around Sern. But no that's not going to be a problem. But yeah, no, I think some Braatz and mix up some sauerkraut on the side. They're young. I think that'd be I don't even know what what sports have any. There is tonight because we have the basketball championship is tomorrow night tomorrow. So. The women's championship. There you go. That's worthwhile. All right. I'm all set to a lot of tourists in town lately. I guess spring break, and then so I was on the twenty nine CTA stretch limo the other day coming downtown. And a guy that's the one with darkened windows. Right. And there's a guy that gets on. And he's standing at the fare box with a ten dollar Bill. And the driver says, we don't make change, and he goes, okay? And then he puts the ten dollar Bill in standing there waiting for the change. Okay. I mean, and I felt you know, jeeze for ten bucks. He ought to just be able to ride the bus all day long. No, just don't get off the bus. But. Crazy town. Crazy town. They were a bunch of people in town this week. There was some convention go and was a convention of weatherization contract. Was that what it was? And number of them from the southeastern part of United States. I will say, and I was in my favorite underground hang out on lower. Michigan. Billy goat. And one guy. Opined that plays. Look like something out of Kentucky. I'm just trying to trying to grasp that thought, you know. And yeah, it was an interesting cast of characters for this weather. He was talking about the the Billy goat itself. Okay. There's something like something out of Kentucky tavern, right? Yeah. Not not not a goat. But. Which I think he might have been more familiar with given his demeanor. But yeah, interesting interesting group of people there and not not not sure they had been to Chicago before. First time for everything. Yeah. I think you should do the whole program in your Kentucky dialect there. Now. I don't think we all to the Sundays. Oh, man, do it from a little cabin. Get a little cabin here. In Sunday spin on the eighteenth floor. The it's it's high up here. He's he's tall buildings. They're scary. Hurt my neck looking up buildings as highs and elephants. Clear up to the sky. This thing's going off the rails already. Gosh who at seven twenty on the twenty seven twenty. Well, and maybe just is is a fitting moment show this to the guys before we went on the air on Facebook. Somebody posted this Charlie Brown cartoon of Charlie Brown, waking up at night in bed. And he goes sometimes I lie awake at night. And I ask where have I gone wrong? Then a voice says to me this is going to take more than one. I think that's I think that's today's motto. Today's Sunday spin while Dave's here to keep us up to date on all the news, and he has the latest sports producer Sarah's here and fielding your calls.
