Memorial day

Hope all have a great Memorial Day weekend. We're taking a quick "vacation" and will be back in the blogosphere next week, Lord willing.

P.S. -- We had an enjoyable trip out of town. We headed up through the western edge of Arkansas and spent the night at Mena. At Shady, AR, near Mena, we purchased a rolling pin made by 104 year old Mitchell Cogburn. We headed to Springdale, with a quite beautiful drive up Hwy 71. On Sunday we attended Shiloh Baptist Church. Shiloh of Elm Springs is the former Faith Regular Baptist Church. It was in the old East Washington Association but is now independent. We ate dinner at the famous A.Q. Chicken of Springdale, and then attended a Sacred Harp singing at the Shiloh Museum. The new interstate 540 (Fort Smith to Fayetteville/Springdale) is also a beautiful drive up in the tops of the Boston Mountains. We came back through eastern Oklahoma. The drive is almost exactly the same time-wise as going up through Ark.
