Now, John, you just know I want to know about Molly. Have you any more pictures of Molly?

I should hope you will be able to appreciate summer now. After all, you didn't have winter, wouldn't have had winter if you stayed home. The best I can determine the part of Ontario where you are had very little snow.

Of course, that means the streams will be low and the fishing won't be good.

Now, we had snow here. & it was ok. Not very deep, but it stayed. In fact it's still here. But it's going and now is the time of the year for playing with snow and seeing new discoveries each day.

Sure send away. I have some work work to do tonight, but pics will make a break.

& I have a coyote/fox tale to tell, which I have not told here yet, seeing as how the section is on pets, not pet challenges and I was running that theme on two other places. We shall just say, that the babes are not allowed to enjoy the sun unless Mom is home.

Hello and Welcome home Bushman. Glad your trip went well. We came home from Texas via La., Miss as well at the end of March.
Did you happen to take the Natchez city tour? We stayed there two days on the way home. We were told about the Natchez Trace but had to make a side trip to Memphis (GraceLand)

We saw a lot of things you only read about, but to actually be there was great. I never would have imagined Texas being like it is.
Seeing tugs pushing long rows of barges up the Mississippi was something I've read about but not seen. All in all, I can only hope your trip was as good as ours.

Hey folks, hope all are well and staying healthy...we are back in town also...put 13,300 km on the old F350...Bushman...we probably passed each other on the trace(we had a bolo golf game strapped to a bike carrier on the back of the trailer)..We came across US 12/190 and turned north on 165 to Alexandria MS then across 28/84 to vidalia MS ..we arrived on the 4th and stayed in Natchez(plantation rv) for one week, then on to clinton for 2 days then to Tupelo(barnes crossing) for 4 days and two days at David Crockett state Park for a couple more..I might stay at the Merriweather lewis park on the way back down.. it seemed really nice ...cant say enough about that drive...very nice and very relaxing..

Hi Skip and Bushman, glad to see you are back and had a good winter. When we got back on April 4, we beat a snow storm by just 2 hours. I would like to have stayed south about another week to 10 days. Anyway glad to see ya'll back.

We usually take I-55 north, but are taking 165 to 28 to connect to the Trace. How was the road conditions on 165 & 28? I-10 has been a rough road for a while, so trying to avoid it through Louisiana.
