    “I like to use old 1800s barn wood,” said Davidson. “It looks nice and the wood lasts for a long time.”

    After more years than anyone can seem to remember, a faithful group of customers have made their way to H&A Restaurant “where everybody knows your name” to enjoy a home-cooked breakfast before beginning their day.

    All that is left now are the memories as the iconic diner closed its doors for the last time Friday, leaving behind a legacy that has spanned the years.

    This is about Waddy and Peytona – or is it Peytona and Waddy? – neighbors along Highway 395, which crosses Interstate 64 about 10 miles west of Lawrenceburg.
    You may not have noticed, but if you travel eastbound on I-64, new signs placed there by the state now list the exit for “Peytona/Waddy” rather than giving Waddy the top billing it has had since the exit opened in the late 1950s.

  • Carol and Larry Erickson of Versailles will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with a family dinner at Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse in Harrodsburg on Oct. 15.
