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!!"

This is Memorial Day weekend the official kick off for summer and a time to remember those that have given there life's for our country. We want to thank all veteran's for their service.

I’m taking another 4 day weekend off from work and hoping for some good weather. Friday was cloudy and damp so we didn’t do much,we did get to have a camp fire on the deck in the evening.

Saturday up early and it still cloudy,we were tired of sitting inside so we loaded Annie up and drove up to Weston Bend State Park. The park sits on the Missouri River and is on the Lewis and Clark trail. Nice camp ground and lots of trails to walk.



The water you see thru the trees is the river. We took a trail that runs along the river bluff for about 2 miles.

After stopping for lunch we drove a about 10 miles north to Lewis and Clark state park. Another nice park it is on a Oxbow Lake the parks are full of campers and people enjoying the holiday weekend.

Angela and I sure miss being able to go camping and enjoying the out door life,after all we live with in a hour or two of about five state parks. Not sure we can make it another year or two to retire and start camping again we may have to do something about that.

Today we are going to smoke some baby back rib’s and go over to the nursing home and see mom.

Please be kind and take care of each other.

I feel you with regard to missing camping and the outdoor life. although, the NW Arizona has been unseasonalby cool, so far. The days are flying, we'll be out there before long!

I hope you'll join me, at 3pm local time, in a Moment of Remembrance

Discovered I can comment on you post using Firefox ONLY...Yours and about 4 others won't let me comment on IE...That sucks. Hope your ribs were them low and slow, then grilled hot for 15 minutes.

I just finished reading a book about the Clark family and William Clark's adventure out to the west coast with Meriweather Lewis. Very good book.

The park looks nice, great that you had some nice weather on your day out.
