ELECTION DAY, is SuperMario STILL single??, wild weather AND other random notes…

Well a big THANKS for checking out this weeks Election Day edition of Diggin’ In to the Legends…

Normally, EVERY MONDAY, I post a fun blog about the weekends happenings, but yesterday was a little busy here on the home front, so my apologies.

Ace Weekly ad.JPGHowever, during the last blog posting, I mentioned how I was selected to be one of Ace Weekly’s (Lexington newspaper) Bluegrass Bachelors. Now, yes…I promised some pictures, but unfortunately, I took EXACTLY zero pictures. My apologies. However, long story short, SuperMario IS still single..no lucky ladies stole the heart of this guy on that day. Great conversations though with some nice women. But, no winners. The day was also a little somber though, as one of the Bluegrass Bachelors was involved in a motorcycle accident on Thursday and passed away after a result from the crash. I, SuperMario on behalf of all of us here at the Lexington Legends were saddend by the tragic news and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with Larry Goodrich’s friends and family. For those who don’t know, Larry was a long-time worker from Lexmark.

As you can tell from the first line of the blog and the title of the blog…TODAY is ELECTION DAY across the United States of America. If you have not gone out just yet to be apart of history..then get out soon and rock the vote! Polls stay open until 6pm (in Kentucky, at least), so don’t miss out on your chance to elect the candidates in the local, regional and national races that best represent you and your ideals/visions for the future.

Currently, the temperature is registering on the thermonater as 74 warm degrees during the FIRST WEEK OF FREAKING NOVEMBER…LOOOOVE IT! Even our front office is super steamy and at times unbearable..This wild Kentucky weather is truly something else. But, guess what?? Don’t get too comfortable with the high temps, because by the weekend, the 60s return then eventually will be struggling to get out of the lower 50s. Brace yourselves!

Bluegrass Bachelors 2008…

It’s Thursday, which equals one day away from Friday, which then means..the weekend will be here. YAYAYAYAYAY!

Speaking of weekend..got a good weekend plan for ya if you’re looking for something to do..

This Sunday is the Bluegrass Bachelors of 2008 party…and yours truly, good ole SuperMario has been selected by the fine folks from Ace Weekly to serve with a few others as the “creme of the crop,” “creme de la creme,” etc.  Ace Weekly chose the most ELIGIBLE bachelors in the Bluegrass, and profiled myself and the rest of the guys in their October 30 edition of Ace (today-Thursday).

Ace has being doing this event for awhile now. Recent Bluegrass Bachelors over the past ten years have included: doctors, lawyers, detectives, police officers, chefs, engineers, athletes, bankers, veterinarians, artists, professors, and more!

This year’s bachelor candidates range from early 20s to mid 50s and obviously are SINGLE, and definitely qualify as a real Catch of the County.

All you faithful, Diggin in to the Legends readers, should put this event on your agenda for the weekend. With SuperMario there…it’s looking more and more like a star-studded event…ha!

But, seriously…here is some more information about the event…
Ace Weekly ad.JPGSo there ya go…Make it out if you can…at least to say HELLO…along with that, come support the cause and help out the Woodford Humane Society where all the proceeds are going towards.

Of course, on Monday, I’ll have a full and complete wrap-up of how this Bachelor Party bottomed out. I’m totally not sure what to expect, but, I’ll definitely give ya the breakdown on how it all goes, on the next edition of Diggin in to the Legends.

have a great weekend everybody!

keep it SUPER fans!
