A Getaway to the Mountains

There is nothing more relaxing than a couple of nights in the mountains.
The sun rises on a new and invigorating day, a day of putting aside
all the cares of "normal" life.

This was the view from "our" mountaintop at the Mountain Top B&B in Mountain View, Arkansas

Our host and hostess, Ron and Alicia, were most cordial and hospitable. The room was beautiful, and we highly recommend it.

Cody's restaurant in Fifty-Six, Arkansas (yes, that's the name of the town!) had the best coconut cream pie. It's about 10 miles from Mt. View.

There's no place like the Ozark Folk Center for genuine Hillbilly entertainment and retro life. The culture has been well preserved.

A genuine cave man! He said he lived in a cave for a number of years when he first moved here, but he couldn't get a date, so he finally moved.
Really! That's what he said!

The Cobb brothers. Very professional, and home schoolers. I love home schoolers--especially my 12.

Everyone needs to make a stop at Mellons Country Store. It's country! And it's a pretty good variety store, too. Do you like roasted peanuts? Have a few while you're there.

Sylamore Creek

Somebody forgot to be redneck!

Ya'll come back now, ya' hear?

These two rednecks were really disappointed that they didn't get to go. Sorry, girls. Maybe next time!

"From the rising of the sun
to the going down of the same,
the name of the Lord is to be praised."

Psalm 113:3
