“Be A Simple Man” was a song written by Lynard Skynard and was performed recently without music by Kenny Cook, and one of the best country singers out there that is sure to be discovered. Bad notes and of off key-moments are not existent with Kenny.

Back in the day I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd and I will always cherish those memories.

I really hope you’re appreciate Kenny’s  God given talent and hope you feel the same by leaving a kind comment below and by subscribing to his channel. He’s always adding new works.

Andrew Darnell’s Helicopter is a hit at Paducah Aero Modelers Charity Fly

PADUCAH, KY – Andrew Darnel took flight with his super-fast stunt helicopter during the Paducah Aero Modelers Annual Charity Fly-In and boy was it a crowed pleaser.

It was doing stunts that were impossible. As my friend, Bob said, “It defies all the law of physics.” It went backwards while spinning. It flew upside down so close to the ground it may have cut a few blades of grass. Impressive.

Andrew asked me after his flight if I had kept up with it and I had to say, “No” with a laugh.

It was free to watch. They had a food stand and all kinds of other RC model planes that took flight as well.

The last time I went to an RC Show was back in the 60s when my father took us kids. This reminded me of that so it was very special to me.

The event took place at the McCracken County Model Air Park located on County Park Road in Paducah, KY.

PADUCAH, KY – This is brief look at some of the American flags flying on Memorial Day in the LowerTown neighborhood in Paducah, KY.

Boy Dwyer and his wife Terrie, true patriots, volunteered to start the program three years ago and they fly these flags on seven different occasions during the year.

They are very much appreciated as well. While I was taking pictures, I was talking to a new resident that was really happy with the flags.

For Memorial Day the flags are placed on lawns and along sidewalks to pay respect for those who have served in the military and to never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

LowerTown is one of Paducah’s historic neighborhoods that dates back to 1836 when it was annexed.  It was coined LowerTown because it was downstream from Paducah’s commercial area at the time.
