I'm ready for spring.....How about you?
I don't know about you.......But my feet's cold and I'm ready for some warm weather.I think I'm getting spring fever.I want to go camping and fishing,and see the flowers bloom.I want to see the squirrels play and watch the birds build their nests.
As mama used to say" my butts colder than a well-diggers butt".and I'd say"wearing polyester pants in Alaska in January".
Ar-kan-saw jest ain't perty in February.
Now in summer,It's downright perty. We have so many different geographical areas to visit.
We have the flood plain,we have Crowley's Ridge(only one other like it in the world).
We have the Mississippi flood Plains. and we have the Ozark Mountains.
If it wasn't so cold,Diane and I would be in the mountains camping.We would also be fishing with Jon.I started him fishing when he was still in diapers.
One of the pictures I posted is at a boyscout camp-out last fall......believe me.IT WAS COLD!!
It was Halloween week-end,and the Leaders had made a haunted trail...which went down that night.It was great..the boys loved it,and so did the adults;).It also counted as a night hike which the boys needed for a badge:).One of the things I like about this troop,is they practice their motto:
Leave no trace.Which means,the grounds look better when they leave than when they got
there.Anthow thats whats on my mind this Friday night.I bet Diane is thinking the same thing;).What about you?
I fogot..we also have Diamonds in Ar-kan-saw..
