My ol' Kentucky Home

(If you aren't from KY you probably don't get the title .. it's a song.)

So the weirdest thing happened today. I had to fly to KY for work - nothing unusual about that. The thing that was weird was that when I landed at the airport and was walking through towards the rental car area I heard people talking around me with their accents and the different phrases that you hear only in KY and ... I WAS HOMESICK. I felt like I was "home".
Why is this weird you ask? Because I am from Utah .. I grew up in Utah. Sure I have traveled a lot and I lived in KY for several years but it still isn't my "home" yet I felt like I had come home. Weird how things just happen to hit you sometimes.

It could have been the family reunion at the airport that made you realize you were "home"...lol

I feel that way every time I go to Texas.
