"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

It's Been a Long Time

Three and a half months, to be exact.  Since I'm sitting at home, chair bound, with a pinched nerve in my back telling my brain someone is sawing off my left knee with a dull saw; I thought I would catch you up on our paste few months.  

                                It's pretty boring stuff from Sally's point of view.

                               Soon after returning home we met some friends in Louisiana for a reunion lunch.

              Our daughter and son-in-law purchased a camp on a bayou in Louisiana.

 She loves her dogs, fish's with them every day.


  I just spent my time enjoying the deck over the Labor Day weekend.

We were on our way to Mountain View, Arkansas to meet some friends.  Stopped along the Arkansas River one night.

We had a good few days enjoying great acoustic music around the square, and carrying on some foolishness.

While on the road we got word that one of my brother-in-laws had passed away so we came home to be with all our family.

A week or so later, we dog set for our kids while they were away for the weekend.  A day in the country is tough on city dogs.

We traveled to Natchez to see the balloons.  Didn't plan on getting involved again, but we did.
Loved every minute of it.

                                                     First flight celebration and initiation,

                                              and a wonderful end of a wonderful day.

We left Natchez for Huntsville, Alabama; and Monte Sano state park to meet with friends for a week.  There were about 13 trailers there, and we had a good time reconnecting with folks we hadn't seen much over the past year.  We spent a lot of time shopping and eating out.  Funny thing is, the only picture I took all week was of a half empty beer glass.  Guess you know what my priorities were.

The last three days there were stormy.  The same storm that wrecked so much havoc from Tennessee northward.  Thankfully we had only high winds and rain.  No damage in the park.

                                                                  Rainy days blues.

                             Back home, my brother and I build a couple of portable buildings.

We took a drive one day looking for some leaf color, but the only color we found was at Mississippi's version of  Bryce Canyon.  It's call Red Canyon.

And this one had another birthday last week.  We drove to Hattiesburg for lunch at one of her favorite restaurants.

I think that's all the boring details of our last few months.  Now, if I can get over this pinched nerve, we can start planning for January....jc
OBTW. Did I tell you I hate the Blogger format.  No matter how I lay it out, it never posts it like I want.  End of gripe...jc


  1. Blogger is worth every penny its free service costs me.

  2. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Looking forward to crossing paths in January!

  3. Know what you mean about Pinched Nerves. The best way to overcome them is Physio-Therapy and Exercise.
    Many find Blogger a Pain but it has served us well for Eight Years and doesn't cost us anything.
    Be Safe and Enjoy your travels.

    It's about time.

  4. Hope you feel better soon! Good to hear from you!

  5. Sorry to hear about your back.....seems the only bed comfortable for my lower back is the one in the Casita(that's my story and I'm sticking to it) :)) For a nano second I thought that was a Moose Drool bottle you were enjoying.....

    Take care of yourselves and hopefully I'll see you early next year...I hope to start my Western tract in late January early Feb.

    Take care my Friend....and a belated Happy Birthday to Ms. Wanda. Horst sends
