Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

First thing, all the pictures were taken with my cell phone. Note to self put extra camera in truck.

This week has turned out to be real nice, I think spring has sprung and is here to stay,I hope after all I do live in Missouri and the weather can change in no time,Friday we got up to 71.

Friday afternoon we went for a walk in Parkville,MO it’s about 4 miles from the house and sits right on the Missouri River. It’s also home to Park College named after the founder of Parkville.

Sunday we do the spring forward thing on the clocks. I guess that’s means spring is here.


Kind of  hard to see in this picture the college sit’s on a hill overlooking the river.


This old home sits on the bottom of the hill toward the river and by the train tracts. It’s one of the oldest home’s in the county.


There are several of these old and very large trees that sit along the banks of the Missouri,make me wander how much history and flooding they have seen.


This picture of some of the old store fronts on a back street in town.


As always we hope everyone has a good and safe week.

If'n we'uns that ain't from Misrooui come here to yer websight and look at it, it ain't enough to just park and look at stuff, no sir, yer gonna show us every park place ya got. Then if'n anyone were to take a picture of it, yer gonna show us worser one. No wonder lotsa these folks down here snowbirdin' says they "was from" Missori.

One of the reasons we bought a very small camera, a Nikon. It fits in my purse and if we ever need to take a shot, it is there and it takes much better photos than a phone camera.

Nothing like the first days of spring after a long winter. Your cellphone takes great photos - nothing wrong with them at all!

I agree - those pictures really are not bad for a cellphone. AH, the sweet feel of Spring in the air.

Well as you know Mother Nature was just fooling those of us in MO cause I woke to snow yesterday and a chilly day again today. I am praying when the calendar turns March 20, the first day of spring, the snow goes away for a long while and the warm air permeates the air.
