"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

A Slow Week

DSCN0641 (Small)

Awoke this morning the the sounds of heavy thunder.  We have been wishing for a nice rain since returning from Arkansas last week.  The grass needs cutting, but as there’s  more bare spots than  grass in parts of our yard, it’s nice to have a rain to settle the dust.  Received a nice shower, along with some tremendous lightning and thunder. Had Sally hiding under the bed.  All gone now, so will spend the rest of the day on the John Deere.

Otherwise, not much happening around the home site.  Spent a few hours cleaning the Casita, preparing for getting on the road again.  Heading out for the big city of Crockett, TX.  Another Casita/FGRV rally.  Nearly a hundred rigs registered.  Should be a great time together.

We did find out what this little fellow was.

He is destined to become a Spicebush Swallowtail. Isn’t nature amazing?
