Re: SE Missouri 2016

Thank you for posting that message about your relatives, FangKC. My grandfather owned many acres about 120 miles south of St. Louis in Iron County. He owned and ran a sawmill. He also built houses in the area. One of them was where his wife and nine children lived. It was a beautiful, two-story hous...

Re: SE Missouri 2016

I have to add my son's comment: That's what could happen when you build a lake on top of a mountain. Of course it did happen. It was asking for trouble.

Re: SE Missouri 2016

Hi, Moderne. I didn't remember anything, so I asked my son. He said there were boulders strewn all over. He showed me on Google Maps how the trees were stripped down to the bedrock. I grabbed a screen shot that shows it: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50441449498_e8f518ca08_o_d.jpg Hope this he...

We are walking around Johnson Shut-Ins State Park. We spot a river. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50396017061_8874dcbb30_c_d.jpg A display of braggadocio from such a tiny flower. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50395325963_a76bfa62e3_c_d.jpg Daisies reaching out. https://live.staticflickr....

SE Missouri 2016

It is May, 2016, and we are headed for a reunion near St. Louis, but we visited a few other places. Here, we see that we are entering the Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50338957892_b29001f952_c_d.jpg My husband and son venture down a path in the forest. https://li...

Arkansas 2019 Part 6

These are the last pictures for this trip. Another picture on the lodge wall, scrunched and twisted just a little to force a nearly correct shape. Didn’t see any real ones. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50314349322_a502e6aa9d_c_d.jpg I liked the foggy atmosphere. The original picture is framed...

Re: Arkansas 2019 Part 5

We stopped at a gorgeous lodge for lunch. I took a few pictures as we walked around the place. Here, a beautiful bouquet. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50286730628_9dd60f8ec5_c_d.jpg Even the hallways were attractive. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50287405331_32ddaaac08_c_d.jpg I suppose...

Re: Arkansas 2019 Part 5

Years ago, I was joined by my husband and grown son on a duck boat ride, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We first rode around on land, in a partly wooded area, where we saw a number of WWII artifacts. Plowing into the water at a good clip was exhilarating. I'm terribly sorry for the misfortune of othe...

This is a tiny flower, which makes the even tinier yellow flower-like doodads in the middle remarkable. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50216867567_8ac17af229_c_d.jpg Interesting sign on a rock, warning you of a high cliff.

Aw, shucks. Thanks! You obviously paid close attention to the thing—which I appreciate—or you wouldn't have spotted the defect. You are cool, too.

Thank you for noticing my mistake, WSPanic. Aaaarrrggghhh! I tried so hard not to mess up. And thank you, Normalthings, for your kind comment. I'm happy to hear you messed with the puzzle, albeit flawed. The puzzle was flawed, not you. :roll:

Crossword Puzzle Just for KCRag

These really are photos, or I should say, scans. And they definitely pertain to Kansas City. I discovered an appreciation for crossword puzzles and decided to make one myself. I already made one for another site (TheFossilForum), so this one was easier. I apologize for not following the crossword-pu...

Re: Arkansas 2019 Part 5

The one bathhouse we visited indoors was more like a museum, where you could see how it existed years ago. I didn't know if any were actually used now, so I did a quick check on the Internet and found a good site. Apparently, there are several that are still used as true bathhouses. One bathhouse ha...
