Carthage MO

We made our way from Peculiar MO to Carthage MO this morning. Everything went fine but we are suffering with the hot and humid weather. We have an excellent WiFi connection here if it holds up. Last spring when we were here they were 'waiting for a part'. Apparently the part got here.

When we went in to pay our rent a lady was bemoaning the fact that they were having to turn people away. Next weekend is Carthage MO's Fall Leaf Festival and it was made clear that they most likely would not have room for us...hmmm...hope they have our work done by then.

The leaves have not started to turn yet and they only have a week to be in their prime color change? May not happen.

Till next time...

Max & Peggy's Albums

Below is a message and a link to Max and Peggy's Snow Mountain Ranch ( and others) pictures. Max and Peggy are very active volunteers at Snow Mountain Ranch.
Also when you click on the link you see all the album covers. When you want to view the entire album click on the appropriate cover. They are worth the trip!!

Here is the location of the pictures Peggy and I (and a few others :-) took this past summer at SMR. I was very lax this summer and did not get very many email addresses. So, if you see someone you know, ask them if they received this email. If they would like to see them, please give them this address to see the pictures or forward this email to them.
Thank you all, I really enjoyed the summer.
