When you're checking cattle, a fenceline, the firebreak or any other rural type setting, once encounters mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, rabid skunks, and many other critters that react very badly to human presence if the kids are around, or they're having a bad day.

In areas like Bella Vista, what are you going to encounter? A rachety HOA officer?
Actually, Rog, Bella Vista isn't all that different from where you are. Lots of ol' boys checking on things with a shotgun resting on the seat next to them, and a hound in the back of the pick-up. You're more likely to run into a deputy sheriff on those Bella Vista backroads, who will warn you not to crack the six-pack of Bud until you get home.

You certainly do know Bella Vista and yes, we do have those pick up trucks with the dogs in the bed, driving around here everyday!!!

So what, what are you even talking about? You can buy a shotgun for $100 in 5 minutes, Is that supposed to be impressive.

One of my neighbors finally sold that old car...

I'm just saying that Benton County hasn't lost all of its rural flavor. I can remember when I was in high school, the first day of hunting was considered an excused day of absence. I don't know if that impresses anyone, or if it amuses anyone, but it was what it was. Some of the teachers gave anyone bringing down a buck extra credit, the more points, the more points, if you know what I mean.

One of my welding teachers at UAFS was like that, he was a &$@& I hated that guy.

When I read that, I initially got a visual of and 80 year old in robin egg blue pants and a white belt, with a shotgun beside him in the golf cart.

Thank God it really isn't quite as bad as the TV would like you to think. As for us; we have only one problem and we are at a loss to know where to start. 6.61 inches of rain in a period of about 6 hours is a lot. Ok, a little of that did happen before 1am and a little after 7am, but most was in a 6 hour period. What happened to us: the drain pipe and the gutter got separated due to the pressure. We now have a rock garden in the street in front of our house and the rock parking area. is nothing but black plastic. The city will clean up the street, but the cost to replace the lost rock, I don't want to think about it.

I did ask our daughter, who not only over looks one of the lakes, but is an avid golfer if she was going to enjoy her golf game on Thursday. She said I wasn't very funny. That is strange, I thought I was. Look at it this way, for the fishermen, they could fish while they were on the golf courses.
