"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

More on River Valley FGRV Rally

Didn’t take many pictures during the rally, itself.  It was a more a gathering of friends than an organized rally and everyone seemed to enjoy the informality.  We had some light rain on Friday and Saturday, but it didn’t stop folks from visiting around and sharing a little lagniappe.

It “was” a full pot of delicious gumbo.  It’s always nice to have someone from South Louisiana around.  Especially someone who loves to cook.


One of the things I like about Arkansas is riding the back roads.  You never know what you will find.  I love all the old towns and crossroad communities with their stone buildings.

You can round a curve and find yourself looking down on a huge river valley.

Or a herd of buffalo, hundreds of miles from Yellowstone.

I don’t even know what to call this little fellow.  Showed up on our doorstep, Saturday, during the rain.  Thought he looked like a clown.  Hope he turns into something beautiful.

Sunday afternoon the thunderheads starting building to the West and around dark they let loose an awesome display of lightning and Thunder.  It lasted for a couple of hours, and put a quick stop to all the card playing in the pavilion.

Awoke Monday morning to no electricity due to a transformer being hit by lightning.  Decided to hook up and make our way back home for a few days.  Pine Knot Rally in two weeks.  Egg’ll be rolling again………………jc
