I hope you all had a great Christmas,
I know I did! I said that my spirits
were lifted after I talked to my sister,
well, we spent Christmas together
for the first time, since the 60's or
the 70's! My family is spread out
all over the U.S. and she lived in
Oregon for a long time and now
she is back in Missouri....So, I hope
we can visit, more often. It was an
awful short visit, but it was wonderful!
I did get some pictures going up
and coming back.....This is not far
from where I live and we were way
up on a ridge! It doesn't look like
it is high up in the picture, like it
does with your eyes!
Still in the Kiamichi Mountains...
I loved this X in the sky! My hubby
wanted to know if my sister lived under
it!...lol...Like X marks the spot!
I think this ridge is the one with the
I can see daylight at the end of the
This is not a good picture, but I was in a
hurry to see my sister and I didn't want to
walk a long ways to get a better one!
I hope you weren't in MO, Angie, becaue
I will be mad that I didn't have time to
I love all the rock in Missouri, we used
to go there to see my grandparents
when I was young.
This is Tom, my sister's turkey....He
kept following us around and talking
to us and showing off.
On the way back home, in Osage, AR,
there is a pottery shop, just off the
road we were on, so we stopped and
my hubby got a coffee mug....The
potter said it was a general store
from 1901 until 1989...He has been
there a long time and lives next door.
I love the stacked stone on the side.
Have you ever heard of the War Eagle
craft show? I wanted to go to it in
October, but didn't get there, anyway
he said he has set up there for 33 yrs!
I love this picture, it reminds me
of a folkart picture with the hills
going this way and that!
This was taken shortly after the pic,
above it....If you make the picture
bigger you might be able to see the
houses up on the ridge! I could have
cropped this picture, but then you
wouldn't be able to see how high
the ridge is....The trip was fast, we
went up on Saturday and back on
Monday! I have more pictures and
some of them are misty from a lot
of rain, that we ran into....
I want to thank you all for coming
along on the trip and thank you all
for following! I love blogging and
seeing what everyone is doing, how
you are decorating, what you are
creating and so on....
I want to say Happy New Year
to you all and I hope the new year
brings you many blessings, good
health and many more friends thru
I forgot to have my giveaway at
Christmas time, so I will have one
later on....What is up with that?
I guess it was because I was
Bah Humbug!...lol....I am so glad
that I got over that....Geese Louise!
Happy New Year!
