No Minor League Baseball this year...

Well I expected it but now it is official. I usually catch a few games of AA ball in Little Rock or a game or two of AAA in Memphis, but now all of my ball watching will be on TV. Without driving over 300 miles to a major league park all of my ball watching will be the grandkids in the backyard, that's the best anyway....

RE: Without getting political....

navigator, sadly it looks like college sports are headed that way also, just going to go up in the Ozark hills and find me a cave. Seventy years on this Earth and I have not seen things getting so sterilized and changing about our history as the push that has been made the last few years. As Fred Sanford used to say "I'm comin'n Lizebeth!!! AND, I am buying several cases of Aunt Jemima syrup and pancake mix and also some Uncle Ben's rice and I don't even like rice!!!!

Without getting political....

The NFL has finally lost me for good. Started being selective a couple of years ago, but I have had enough. Off the soapbox, flame retardant suit on..

RE: Concrete graffiti

Get you a can of red paint and paint all the little footprints. Can't erase them, might as well embrace them! ??

Got up early, sitting and thinking...

Tomorrow is June 6th, D-Day. Just thinking about being a 19 year old kid, loading up on a troop carrier with a half a million other guys. Never seen any action, scared, but ready to try and do my part when called. God bless the greatest generation...

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

UPDATE, Arkansas Parks opened today for tent camping also. I am assuming bathhouses and restrooms will be open also. Check out the website for all the information.

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

sayoung, I have never stayed at that park. We have driven by lots of times, even drove around in the park a couple of times. We used to stay in Eureka Springs and drive over to War Eagle for the Craft and Art fall meet. Nothing like that area in the fall!!! Enjoy your visit, the weather is starting to warm up....

Well, I have learned one thing during this pandemic...

When you wear eyeglasses, plus over the ear hearing aids on both sides, these mask with elastic bands that go on each ear are a pain! Every time I try to remove the mask, it pulls one or both hearing aids out and hangs up on my glasses. Had DW do surgery on the mask and make elastic bands that fit over my head to hold the mask on, much easier. Guess what? I get a haircut today, after three months!!!

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

gulf coast, the one RV park I hear most about is Denton Ferry RV Park in Cotter. I have never stayed there but looking at their website, all of the sites are out in the open, no shade. They look level and many pull-through. Located on the White River, and just one night, it might fit your needs.

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

sayoung, if I were you, I would still call the park and confirm you reservation. This virus stuff has muddled up a lot of things around here. It might save you hassle later, just saying from a retired State Employee......??

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

Thanks dallassteve I have been a little busy and was going to update but got behind. Yes, out-starters can use State Parks, but I recommend calling ahead to the specific Park to check on availability. People from "hot spots" will be turned away. Of course "hot spot" changes every week. Lodging at cabins and resorts is limited to 3 day stays over the weekends. Come on down the weather is fantastic! I am not sure of the status of COE parks, I am assuming they are following State guidelines.

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

sayoung, we love the area around Huntsville/Berryville. We used to travel through that area going to Eureka Springs. Hope you can have your reunion, we usually have one in Iowa during September that is on hold until we get the go-ahead.

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

padredw and sayoung, sorry you guys are from Texas, have you ever tried going to Mountain View? Lots of private campgrounds, White River trout fishing, hiking trails, and other things in the area to do. Not sure if Blanchard Springs Caverns are open yet, and I don't think the Ozark Folk Center is open either but you might check out the area. We used to stay at Sylamore Creek Campground and it is right on the creek, nice and quiet.

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

rexlion, hopefully everyone will obey the social rules and play nice, they will open for real around June 1st, just my guess....

Arkansas State Parks to open...

This weekend. But just to Arkansas residents only and just self-contained rigs. No restrooms or bathhouses will be open. State park centers will be staffed, locations with restaurants or lodging and cabins will be open on weekends only. Sorry out-of-staters, need not apply.....

RE: What meal to cook next

Cooked some Cornish hens on the pellet grill the other day. Potato salad, green beans and corn. Fresh sliced strawberries for dessert, yum yum....

RE: The normal things we miss?

What is the old saying, you never realize what you miss until its gone... Like Deb said, family and friends are doing fine, DD and Granddaughter are both teachers, they sure miss the classroom! Really miss Church and the once a month potlucks. ************** just not the same. Old Biscuit, we are praying for you to have a quick recovery! I can feel your pain. My nephew, 42 year old, is fighting stage 4 colon cancer, he has not had a real meal in almost nine months. "And this too shall pass", I will be glad when I can go to Walmart and recognize friends' faces without a big mask over them...

RE: The normal things we miss?

I let my hair go a few years ago, did not get a cut for about 14 months. Forgot what a pain in the a$$ long hair was! Now the grands are trying to get me to let it grow again, I might. Not a fan of letting my wife cut it. I will let it grow until the barber shops open again. What I really miss is going to ballgames with my friend. Miss the road trips and the sights and sounds at the baseball games. I have a personal connection with two of the Razorback baseball players, they are both Juniors this season and they both may declare for the draft in June. If the MLB draft is shortened to just five rounds, there is a chance one will be drafted, the other will probably be back for the senior season. The NCAA has decided to give the Spring sport athletes another year so maybe we can still watch them for another year or two....

RE: A bright spot in all this doom and gloom

I love me some blueberries but they don't come close to a strawberry fresh from the field. I love rhubarb also but it does not grow here and the stuff in the stores is pitiful. I only get good rhubarb when we go to Iowa in September for a family reunion. Can't wait for my annual rhubarb pie!! Another fruit I dearly love is pineapple. I used to eat a truckload when I made to trips Honduras and Belize. Locally grown and ripened on the plant, love the great flavor, nothing like the green things in stores.

A bright spot in all this doom and gloom

Fresh, homegrown sweet strawberries are now ready here in Arkansas. Our wardens (DD and grands), brought us a couple of quarts this morning. Big, sweet, full filled out and delicious. All sliced up and in the fridge ready for dessert after the grilled steak tonight. I'm not sharing.....just saying. ????
