Thank you Pen Bogert and the Kentucky Bourbon Society for inviting us to the get together at Pen's house on Saturday. It was a very nice event with good food and good fellowship. I think Doug took some pictures which he might post.

Attached are a few pictures taken at Pen Bogert's picnic. I included a picture of his beautiful old home as well as pictures of various feathered and furry bourbon enthusiasts.

Doug,
Thanks much for those. It broke my heart not to make it. Believe me, I sure thought of y'all. Looks like it was my kind of party. Pen & Brenda are great, and amazingly gracious. How much cooler does it get, than right next-door to My Old Kentucky Home... 8-).

As a Kentuckian, I consider it my civic duty to drink Bourbon, smoke and bet the ponies. Its a tuff job, but someone has to do it...

Yes Indeed. Thank you Pen for having us all over to your wonderful home, and thank you Mike for inviting Art and I. It was a great time. I especially enjoyed talking with Pen about the history of the house and his future plans. The combination smoke house / milk room? / well / cistern structure was particularly unusual and interesting and I had Pen explain it all to me.

Thanks!
Mike

Most people on this site are aware that Mike Veach is in the process of writing about the history of bourbon. Many may not be aware that Pen Bogert is also writing a book. He has completed research and will soon begin writing about the history of slavery in Kentucky. I look forward to publication of both books.

Doug,
Pen's book is more correctly on the Slave Trade in Kentucky. Pen really busted one of Kentucky's biggest myth's for me. The myth is that slavery was better in Kentucky that it was further south. Of course any slavery is bad, but in Kentucky it was actually worse in my opinion. Kentucky was known for breeding slaves and selling them elsewhere. To me the idea of being seperated from parents at a very young age is not a pleasant thought. Pen's book will be very interesting reading.
