Nothing like a kiss in Paris…Texas. Not quite as romantic as the “real” Paris, but it was under 100 degrees which was a plus!
We sure enjoyed a great weekend with some ministry partners and friends in the Paris, TX area. The boys and Beth enjoyed tubing on a lake on Saturday. I went with but enjoyed watching from the boat. That was a first for them and they hope it is not their last. They got to ride a horse and a four-wheeler and shoot BBs. Cameron helped their 13 year-old son with his chores and enjoyed riding up in the big tractor with him as they moved a bunch of hay at a field a mile or so from the house.
Thanks to our friends there (you know who you are!) for a great weekend. Enjoyed meeting the folks at church and sharing with them as well.
Had lunch with a few retired CAMers at GoYeVillage in Tahlequah, OK before arriving in Siloam Springs, AR.
Heading off to Hannibal, MO in the morning. I suppose we’re on a bit of a children’s literature trail here as we go through Wilson Rawls’ stomping grounds and up into the haunts of Samuel Clemens. (If you’re stumped…Rawls wrote “Where the Red Fern Grows” and “Summer of the Monkeys” and Clemens wrote a few works that somehow were attributed to a fellow named Twain. You might have heard of these guys and some of their stories.) No doubt we’ll be passing through some other geographical children’s literature links along the way too and I just don’t know it yet. Maybe we’ll figure that out when we pass through.
