....Kentucky, once a city of steel mills,
now prosperous, busy and nothing stands still;
home of Colonel Sanders, who was the chicken king,
and of Johnny Depp, the actor, who wore the priate bling.

It's where the last public hanging was, in nineteen thirty-eight,
and where Ames made motorcars with Bendix brakes;
Temple Adath Israel one of the oldest synagogues in the USA,
it's the BBQ Capital of the world, and river boats go anchors aweigh.
Top: Base of sign in a city park.
Middle: The Glover Cary Bridge over the Ohio River.
Bottom:  Not in "horse country", but plenty of horses are around.
