I think it was Bob Wills that sang the song that keeps running around in my head. “I’ve seen miles and miles of
We had lots of fun. My little brother and his son Rowdy stayed with us. I got to see my best friend Becky and my aunt and uncle as well as good ole "mom". (She's the crazy, gray-headed, best friend of my mom Sallie and who also kept the girls when they were little. She keeps you smiling and holding your breath at the same time because you never know what will come out of her mouth.)
Tim and Brittney found a new local coffee shop with internet access. My mom and the girls and I found some great deals at yard sales and thrift stores. Poppa found the patience of Christmas as he played checker and card game after card game with all the grandkids. A trip to Chalk Bluff found some cool relief to the blistering hot days. Tim and Brittney and Danielle went on a treasure hunt (sshhhh!) without success though. The "bluff" they were supposed to climb was no longer accessible. Hunter got to jump from a rope swing on a tree into the river -just like the kids in the Country Time Lemonaide commercial. He thought that was pretty cool. Another day we went to the river down below my parents house. Again, the water refreshing and cool. Rowdy and Hunter and JT built a dam to make a small swimming area for all. Tim found some white river rocks to add to our aquariums at home. Lots of fun in the sun!
