More scenes from Arkadelphia.....

The historic courthouse which was damaged in a tornado and then restored.

Neighborhood children playing near an old salt kettle on the courthouse grounds.

Making salt was an early industry in Arkadelphia.

A eucalyptus tree in the yard of Cheryl's mother....our gas-saving Honda in the driveway...we pruned the eucalyptus and brought branches home.

A fig tree outside the house, my first time to notice a real "fig leaf"....Cheryl's mom and many local birds just love these figs!

Heirloom tomatoes, thin-skinned and delicious are becoming quite popular with gardeners like Cheryl.

Now, back home in Northwest Arkansas, with my mother visiting....we are piecing quilt blocks for a wedding quilt. Nephew Ben and his fiancee, Natalie, love blue and green. Their wedding is set for Nov. 29th this year.

Back to the sewing machine ........BTW the name of this quilt block is "Arkansas Crossroads"!

Hello Lila, just flown in to catch up with your posts ... looks like you enjoyed your school reunion and someone else enjoyed her tea party*!*

Hi. Loved seeing your reunion photos. One of my classes (I go to two where I grew up and the other where I in Mineral Wells) is planning a reunion for Sept. 27. I am on the committee. We had our last meeting yesterday. Got a good turn-out, and we've found all but about 10. Considering we were a military town, that's pretty good, I think.

Pig Pit...yummmmm! Loved that place.

Also, I love that quilt pattern. I would like to find that pattern.

Glad to hear from you!
