Randy, I just looked up Google Earth the Eunice H. Bryan Nature Preserve, scrolling in and out. My goodness, a lot of land has been turned into farmland. Just like the Pacific Northwest. What a treasure you have with those ancient trees. 

Laura's forest is one of several small plots that remain of the old forest, and it has been cut at least two times. They have a lot of scrub trees that they thinned out to make a healthier forest and to reduce forest fire threats. There are some ancient tree stumps that the kids dance on. We use old tree stumps to drum because the hollow stumps makes different sounds from each other.

Randy, A very happy day with your five year old in to weeks grandson! No greater pleasure I can think of. What do you name him? 

Your plans sound just like what a young grandson would like to do with a grandfather.

Randall - have a great time with your grandson!

Hello and good Monday morning! Today is "grandson day". My "Champ" (age 5 in 2 weeks) and I are spending the day together. We're visiting relatives, grocery shopping, library, eating lunch out, riding a golf cart for 9 holes, having an ice cream, and enjoying each other's company on a gorgeous day. His real name is Jensen, but I never (ever) call him that. Why not? Mostly, because he's named after my ex-wife (nee Jensen). That really bothers me. Secondly, that's my own son's middle name. One "Jensen" is enough. He doesn't understand why I don't use his name yet. He does know I love him.

Joan and Mindy, I consider the "preserve" my own. It's really about a half mile away, across an 80 acre corn/bean field. But hardly anybody knows about it or walk the trails. In my 35 years of visiting it (google Bryan Nature Preserve), I've seen less than a dozen people in it, mostly illegal mushroom hunters. The woods has magnificent stands of oaks and cottonwoods, etc. Mammoth trees. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to walk through.

Randy, what a treasure you have in that stand of trees. I know what you mean about being in the woods. I love it at Laura's place; they live deep in the fores on 17 acres of forest land. You can't see the house from the road and there are none of the noises that my 50'x185' city property has.

Gee, Friday already? No big weekend plans. Probably continue cutting firewood. Great weather for a day in the woods.
Speaking of woods, there is a nature preserve behind my house--a 27 acre indigenous stand of trees--with a path through it. Dot and I walked it two days ago. Wonderful!

Safaris? Did I miss something?
Mindy, do you take ginger pills (or the real thing)? Ever since I started taking them, I've never experienced acid reflux. Just bad breath!

Mindy, any news on your kitty? 

Richard, thanks for your comments about my posts. 

Steph, it is so nice to see your face and comments again. I really missed you. Welcome home.
