Hogs Lose

Rain Delay kept the hogs game from getting started on time. The Hogs were behind in the 8th inning.

What is the matter with the Umpire. He is making some bad calls against the Hogs. Everyone knows that the close calls are supposed to go to the Hogs. Hogs score a home run to tie up the game in the 8th.

The ninth inning comes and the Gators get a man on second. A fly ball is hit and the outfielder throws to home plate. The runner tries to slide around the catcher and misses the base. The runner turns around to touch the base with his hand and it appears that the catcher gets the tag prior to the runner hitting the bag. Umpire yells - YOUR OUT!

Hogs coach heads to the mound to argue and the umpire simply leaves the field quickly. Game over.

Hogs Lose series 2-1

Baseball Hogs

The hogs are in gator land playing baseball tonight. As of this time the Hogs beat the gators 8-3 and are going to have a good series.

The hogs are #9 and gators #7. Guess the hogs should move up if they can keep up this pace.

By the way Colt McCoy #85 pick to Cleveland - must be embarrassing for the winningest quarterback in NCAA history.

The River is low!

Checked on the Little Red River level two days in a row and the generators are off meaning the river level is low.

This means that from the dam on down river wade fishing would be great.

I am ready to be at the river trout fishing. Nothing more exhilarating than to be standing waste deep in the river fly fishing, even if I do not have a clue what I am doing.

I am ready to go.

Hogs Baseball

Arkansas is excelling in baseball. Right now they are really swinging the bats and scoring the runs.

I do not have their record now but I know that it is good. My understanding is that a game at Baum field in Fayettville is a great time. If you are in that area check it out.

It is better than sitting around fussing about John Pelphrey and the lack of a basketball team.

But it is not as good as the anticipation about Arkansas Razorback football.

Arkansas - Home Sweet Home

I was raised in Texas but I have live in Arkansas. We said when we moved to Arkansas that we would move back in two to three years.

It has now been over twenty years since we moved to Arkansas. We raised a daughter there from first grade to now a married young lady. We have had many experiences in Arkansas

As I am writing this I am sitting at my sister's house in Texas. Texas is a nice place.

However, my lovely wife is getting up to go to work in Arkansas. My daughter and son-in-law are in Arkansas.

Arkansas is home - Home is where those are that are nearest and dearest to you.

My thoughts for now.

Spring Time in Arkansas

Yellow, dusty, sneezy, snorty, windy - It is a beautiful spring day in Arkansas. All of the trees are beginning to bud. All of the grass is beginning to grow. The blossoms are coming out on the trees.

It makes one wonder as to how the prettiest time of the year can be one of the hardest times on the sinuses and allergies.

The beauty that God has created is there but sometimes it is hard to see because we are sneezing and snorting with the eyes running and itching.

Somebody explain that to me.

Spring in Arkansas - My favorite time of year.
