    Re: New Jim Beam Book

    Few of us would complain about similar improvements to our neighborhoods!

    Not a problem! They are dolling that ol' mule up real pretty.

    Re: New Jim Beam Book

    Thanks for your opinions on the new book. It sound like a good read. I'll plan to pick up a copy at the festival.

    Re: New Jim Beam Book

    Do all of the buildings in that picture have the new paint job?

    Re: New Jim Beam Book

    Everything in the foreground does. The red building to the left of the Distillery building hasn't been painted in a while. Of higher up expect nothing to happen to the brick buildings. Also notice the large JIM BEAM logo is gone from the distillery( It was above the large opening) I don't know if we are to expect something new and better( Include the Red Seal) or if they are just being repainted and will go back on after all the sealing is finished. Some of the wrought iron fence is visible by the lagoon.

    Re: New Jim Beam Book

    I have had this picture for awhile. It's Booker sittin' on his front porch. Some of ya know Booker some of ya don't. This is for the folks that don't know Booker Noe.

    You can "backtrack" (in time) many, many years ago and compare the pictures. He still looks the same

    Re: New Jim Beam Book

    Thanks for the awesome picture Bettye Jo! Gosh, what I wouldn't give to sit in that swing and share bourbon and stories with him!!?!

    That looks like one of those moments where there's "no other bourbon in the world!!!"

    Booker

    Great pic. He's "a hoot" to talk to. Sure glad I got to talk with him at the time of the Bourbon Festival about 3 yrs. ago -- an honest, nice Kentucky gentleman.

    But have you heard any more about his health, Bettye Jo or Bobby? Last we talked to any one that seemed to know he was not getting any better. Freddy's doing all the PR now.

    Re: Booker

    Booker Noe, is one of the "Greatest of Greats" in the History of Bourbon. He is known, by all, in Nelson County and throughout this Bourbon Industry. He has been ill for awhile and Freddy is the spokesman now. The news that I heard, has not changed.

    Aunt Jo, gave this picture to me . It was taken right before they taped the show about, bootleggers and moonshiner's, for the History Channel. She went to visit him, with this photographer guy from Germany. I can't remebmer his name, Awfoweber or something like that.

    Bettye Jo,
    That is a very, very cool photo. Thanks.
    Was it shot by the people doing the documentary?
