Sep 25, 2009 - Friday - Home

We are safely home and as Dorothy said, "There's no place like home!!!" I'll fill you in on our last day before arriving home.... Our former exchange student, Adnan and his girlfriend Alma, took us to dinner on Wednesday night. The only problem was that we didn't go until 9:00 that evening. Adnan made reservations at a wonderful restaurant called, The Brewery. They produce their own beer called, "Sarajevski." They also distribute Pepsi products in Sarajevo.

Craighead Forest is a city park in Jonesboro, ARkansas, that was founded back in 1935. Lots of recreation activities, with about 20 camping sites.

The plane ride is going to be a...

Oct 1, 2007 - Arkansas and Family History

From St. Louis we made our way to Osceola, Ark where Sandra's Dad was born. So we decided to do some ancestry searching. We were guided to the the towns' Historian, Glenda Thompson, and she was very helpful. She works for Robinson Farms and the owner was kind enough to let us park our cabin on his property for a couple of nights. We went to the Historical Society Museum and looked at some records there, then on to Courthouse to check marriage license. We even walked the cemetary, but back in 1895 when my Dad's mother, Pearl Hall, was born...
