If you added a few former Playmates, a couple of washed up Nascar drivers, and a wild-life petting zoo, you'd have Karl Kasper like numbers in attendance.

Seriously though, it sounds like a couple of interesting afternoon walking tours. I'll be sure to keep my eye out for more information.

I am back in the country and ready to revamp New Albany Source ( I will add these to the site. Please be sure to email me anything else you want put up there. It is easy for me to add the information to the site, but I have a difficult time gathering it.
