We're back from Fayetteville and worn slap out! We had a blast, though. Next weekend, Kale and Kayla will be coming to Flippin for a wedding, so I can't wait for that!
When we got home, we took Tyler to the Pizza Hut for supper and had a nice visit with him. He still lives at home, but at 19, we don't see a lot of him (at least during waking hours), so it's good when we actually get to sit and talk "for a spell".
I found a couple of pictures at my Mom's from our "tent days". I don't think we had much of a camera back then because pictures are hard to come by. But here are a couple that I found:
This is a truck my Dad bought when he began building our house "up the hill". It's a 1957 Ford (purchased 8/29/77). That old truck did a lot of labor for Dad in those days. As you can see, Dad had to clear out a lot of trees before he could start building.
I love this picture of my mom and grandma. It was taken about 3 months after we got to Arkansas (October 1977). That's our wood stove with the diamond pattern on top in the foreground. During the winter, the sides of the tent pretty much stayed down like you see here, but in the summer, we left the sides up most all the time for a good breeze.
Sure makes me want to get out my sleeping bag!
