Growing and Cleaning

the Apple Gourd, if you remember last year I planted these and wanted to make a bird house.

There is more to growing them so they will be just right, mine were to small.
They had to dry over the winter and one rotted.

They were molded, had to be soaked in bleach

then brushed with a wire thing

I scraped most off with my finger nail it didn't come off easy.

then had to let them dry over night and paint them.

Next time I will just buy a bird house gourd.
Old people like me don't have time for complex progressive projects.

OK so that is what we have most of (time).

Camping on the White River

If you enlarge you can see The Bennie.

Cold, cold water coming from a hill running down to the river.
This was a little old water snake in a pond at the camp site.

It was high water and out of it's banks on the White River.

This is Norfork Dam so much water coming from the flooded lake.

That didn't stop the fisher man

Not even the Bennie,

this was a Brown Trout and had to let it go. To keep it has to be 24 in long.
It was cool and sunshine, we ate trout and sit around the camp fire at nite.
