I am back! I had a wonderful trip with Texan! Since she already posted where and why we went I feel safe to say it too! We went to the beautiful Northwest corner of Arkansas. It was breath takingly beautiful as always! We timed it just right for autumns glory! As far as pictures go,this one is not even close to doing it justice!
When I got home I found I did not have a lot of scenic photos because we were taking pictures of properties we looked at up there mostly. Plus, we were having such a good time we really didn't think about taking pictures! Both of us lived in Arkansas as children,all you have to do is hear us talk to know that because that accent never leaves! Somehow, that place seems to be calling us home. I think if you ever make it to those mountains they will forever call you too.Texan described the feeling beautifully on her blog,she is more poetic that me!
You all know how it is,when you leave the farm it falls apart! While in the beautiful Ozark Mountains The boy calls to let me know my brand new dryer quit working! Then the next day,"ummm, Mom, the well pump stopped working." Gee wiz ! You have got to be kidding me! All I could think of was Drought=Dry well! The Boy can fix many things. Like the dryer which he got back running in no time after I got home. He couldn't figure out what was wrong with the water so I had him call out a well pump repairman.We can go without a dryer but we got to have water! Our little town has surprisingly a lot of things considering it is only about a population of 700. One of the things we do not have is a pump repairman. So we have to pay the extra for one to come out from about 45 minutes away. Well, this turned out to be not so bad! It was not the well sucked dry by this never ending drought! It was not the pump out either,even though it is about 60 years old. Nope,it was that the electrical line underground to the pump had broken somewhere. Considering it was installed 60 years ago...I can live with that! Mr. Repairman also confirmed that the well is around 300 feet deep and would have to have a 20 year drought to go dry and it was probably fed off the lake! Insert middle age woman doing the happy dance here. I am going to be watering freely now let me tell ya! So...if your life is feeling boring or you think you don't have any adventures..just by a farm! Your life will be full of adventure and if you want to take it up a notch,just leave the farm for a few days and let the really big adventures start!
