Re: home : )


Flood just crested here. Will take several weeks to subside. Hannibal has massive flood gates that protect their "historic downtown", but all of us with towns and homes on the river will face massive cleanup this summer. Fortunately, the IL side of the Mississippi has bluffs, which puts our town 100+ ft over the river. As folks around here say, if Quincy floods, we are all building arks. That said, the people of Quincy filled one million sandbags to reinforce levees to help out their neighbors up and down the river, and folks who weren't filling helped to feed and house those that were or were displaced by the floods. People are really good at heart!

Theresa,
I am glad that you made it back.  How is your family?
I just have to tell you all that I am in Bella Vista, Arkansas visiting my daughter, son in law and our son. I love this area... so beautiful. 80's for temperature, no wind, no bugs... wonderful lakes, golf courses and quiet living. I think I want to retire here... except the soil is pretty rocky. It would be a whole new ball game to garden in.
Tomorrow we go to Springfield, Ill.
Cathy,
I saw where Hannibal is flooding. How are you doing? Is the flooding getting any better?
