The End

It's been three years since that eventful morning. Since I'm no longer living in Lesterville and there is a great lack of news about the work on top of the mountain and not a whole lot of news out of DNR I've decided that this is a good time to put this blog to sleep. I will leave it up on the net as long as Blogger (Google) leaves it up as a historical document of what went on during these past three years. I'm sure that many of the links are already dead since many news papers don't leave articles up for a great deal of time. However, I think this link will be up for years to come and I think it best explains what happened December 14 to the people living along the river.

Don't send FEMA!

Happy Thanksgiving

On a recent trip south we stopped by the National Metals Museum in Memphis to visit Doug's fountain. It was a cold, windy day on the Mississippi River bluff. Miss you Doug.

Stormy Times

Pam and I traveled to Alabama this week to visit family. Friday morning we gassed up in southern Alabama at $3.53. We headed back toward Springfield with a planned stop in Jackson, Mississippi to visit my brother. When we arrived in Jackson about half of the gas stations were closed because they had no gas and there were lines at the open stations. By the time we had dinner we saw some of the closed stations had received fuel and the price was $5.17 a gallon. That's a big number for this old potter!

I've tried to keep this blog non-political but this was just too funny!
