I remain opposed to graffiti and gangs (as well as foul-mouthed, filthy rap music). I guess that makes me a racist by today's standards, even though I am not opposed to hard-working Blacks and Mexicans.

Oh good grief Your such a goober

Oh boy I'd have loved to been around for that conversation. I've got a pretty strong opinion on vandals after I spent a day painting over graffiti on two sides of a house.

Skiper...good to see you back!

It warms my old California-born heart to hear that YOU see what I see in the Branson area. It's a wonderful place that I've come to really love.

My wife lived both in and around Eureka Springs for seven years back in the 70s so we also visited there. There's a great Mom & Pop type restaurant right as you enter Huntsville.

Since our mailing address will be Blue Eye, although it's nine miles from the house, we'll have to try the cafe.

Beautiful countryside indeed!
Hey we're neighbors! We are just north of the bridge!! Welcome to the "hood"!!
