A more upscale ancestral home [Filler — Travel day]

In contrast to another ancestral home that's falling down bit-by-bit — https://365project.org/rhoing/365/2017-07-13 — history says this home in Scottsville was owned (built?) by my great-great-great grandfather, https://365project.org/rhoing/365/2017-06-28
Eventually it would be a home to Cal Turner, Jr.,* who I think is the current owner. My brother has written to him about seeing the inside of the home, but my brother has not received any response.

Today was a travel day; we drove from Carbondale to Racine, Wisconsin. Chicago traffic: blech!

* Turner's father and grandfather “co-founded J. L. Turner & Son Wholesale … in Scottsville, Kentucky in 1939. It later became known as Dollar General.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cal_Turner
