Well continuing our autumn road trips, we headed east to the Buffalo National River area. You can read all about this National River here. We drove a southern route through a beautiful area that was devoid of people and cars. We headed to Jasper for lunch and ran into 30-40 Porsches parked around the square. It was the 28th annual North Texas Porsche Club tour of the Ozarks. Those cars were gorgeous! After lunch we headed to Ponca, Lost Valley and ended up at the Steel Creek Campground. The trees were beautiful, the river was gorgeous and the bluffs were the icing on the cake. Here are some pictures:
As we were heading towards home, we found out that Randy’s Corvette would be delivered in two days. The car had been at the “CAR DOCTOR” for 15 months. Here is the car right after it got delivered:
I have always referred to this car as Randy’s FIRST Mid-life crisis purchase. We have owned it since the kids were toddlers. Randy had to add seat belts back then in order to load the preschoolers in the car for Saturday morning breakfast runs! During the 15 months the car was being worked on, it got new leather seats, refurbished carpet and LOTS of nuts and bolts type work. In fact, Randy got a bag of bolts that showed the wear and tear of 50 years of driving! Welcome home red!
Yesterday was the LSU-Arkansas game, played here in Fayetteville. The weather forecast was so dismal that my sister and her husband decided not to attend. Well, James jumped at the chance to use their tickets and Randy joined him. They were dressed in 100 layers, heat packs in their pockets and money for hot chocolate. I dropped them fairly close to the stadium and wished them luck. Well, they must be good luck charms for the Razorbacks as we won! WPS!
Take a look at my unusually pudgy guys:
They definitely enjoyed the game and the whole town was on Dickson street after the game celebrating the win. Suffice it to say it was a LOUD night. Today we hibernated in the house while it sleeted and snowed outside! Hope it is warmer where you are!5 Comments
