Vacation Pix

Pictures from parts of my vacation are emerging as I get film developed and I receive pictures from people who also took them. I'll start with Eric's house.

Some he sent... some I took. His are better.

This is 'The Professor' at Eric's home when we stopped by for dinner.

Here the boys and I are at a waterfall at the Tellico River. It was a short walk to the top so we took the path without much weeping whining and gnashing of teeth from Bones. I wanted to go to the top to see the waterfall anyway, but also to clear Ringo's shoes from some horse poop he stepped in. That whole killing two birds with one stone thing...


We made our way down the river to take a look for crawdads, and here's a shot Eric took of the Tellico.


Here are a couple shots of Ringo:

Their big search:

At the end we went to the fish hatchery and there were scads of butterflies. The boys are here trying to entice them to land on their hands. Butterflies are not stupid. 'Smelly boy' is not a place on their 'must land here' radar.

OK. So who's daughter is that High School girl in the waterfall picture? You didn't mention anybody helping you with the Rolling Ball of Noise.

Bou, the scenery looks so familiar! :)
What a small world it would have been had we somehow run into each other while on this trip!
