1984 Ashland Postcards - Mar 28

Same pictured card sent to Grandma and Hortons in Florida and Wendy in Oregon in March 1984.  The break-in mentioned in the card to Wendy was not the one in which Uncle Bill & Aunt Mary were tied up and which made the newspaper – that occurred in 1988.  
Ashland postcard - mailed 1984.  Captioned: "Ashland," Home of Henry Clay from 1811 until his death in 1852.  Located two miles east of downtown Lexington, Kentucky on U.S. 25 South.  Open daily.  Color photo by W.M. Cline Co.

Extremely interesting & beautiful home.  Enjoyed this stop immensely.  Situated on 20 acres originally 514.  Grounds outside were too wet to enjoy but another trip to see formal gardens.  Walnut paneled library was outstanding.  Sorry this is hard to read but writing as we travel north.  Thanks to you & Hortons for such a nice visit.  Hope things are quieter now.  Love to all, H&J

Writing in car!
Real interesting place.  Had nice visit w/your relatives in FL & Aunt Roberta.  Plenty of excitement & activity (Break-in).  Panama (esp. canal) and Costa Rica fascinating  Will show you pix in June.  Saw people bringing milk to dairy on horseback – roads really bad.

Visited Nat. Library in San Jose, C.R.  Outside beautiful but inside unimpressive.  Love & OXOXOX, GD & GMU
