9 to 5 in my town

So glad to be back for FSO.

Today's theme
9 to 5 in my town.

Very active small town I live in. 

Principal of Bethlehem High School doing his favorite job.
Handing out diplomas.
Education is a biggie in our town.
There are 4 high schools in the city limits and numerous schools in our county.
The professionals in these schools work all year.

One of the biggest employers in our town is the tourist industry.

Hostess at the Nazareth Campus Visitor's Center.
It is part of the Historic District Tour.

 Around the Town Carriage  makes regular trips to the many Hotels and Motels in town for a tour of the Bourbon Heritage Trail and all the other activities happening in our town.

Jonsie's entire family get in on the fun.
His daughters dress in Western attire, Disney attire or whatever the occasion calls for.

Dressing in White Fur and Red during the winter season they run all year long.

As part of the tourism industry, I have no idea how many fine restaurants are in our town, food industry is a big employer.

This is the summer scene at Circa, right in the town square.
All the fine restaurants have professional chefs.

Art is a biggie in our town also.

From Henna artists to tattoos.

One of the artists displaying her craft and her products at
Fine Arts of Bardstown 

Daphne and
her clay jewelry. 
The art gallery is right in the center of town and 
contributes much to the festive look of the square with outside decorations all year long.

With 5 distilleries within 20 miles of our town
The Bourbon industry is next after tourism in importance to our economy.

Home Construction is on the rise again and you can find this scene everywhere.

Because of the tourism industry in our town street repair is a biggie for the city workers.
Things must always look good.

Cleaning up after a big fire in the middle of town.
Utilizes many city and police shifts who sometimes work around the clock.

Farming is also a big industry in our town.
These families don't just work 9 to 5, as anyone knows about farming.

Sorry such a long post but I am happy to be back.

Go here to link up with FSO.

Love Ann's comment. I kept thinking I saw that, I saw that. For a small town you have a rich cultural life. Some day I'll have to make a slower pass through your town and eat in a few of those restaurants. Gods to HAVE you back.
