Almost back in the heart of Texas, Marshall, Tx–June 26, 2012

I am having problems with posting this blog…I took out the three photos, will see if it posts without them.

Well, it did post, then I went into blogger online and added the three photos, but could not figure out how to crop the photos down.  I sure hope I can get the Live Writer to post photos.

This morning while we were getting ready to leave, we were not alone.  This toad was loaded with lots and lots of plants.

It is watermelon pickin’ time in this area.  Passed with trailer full of them, also was another trailer stopped along the road selling them.

Today we crossed the Texas state border at Texarkana.  The song sang by Credence Clearwater Revival, Cotton Fields, kept creeping into my mind.  Also the New Christy Minstrels sang this same song with gusto.
COTTON FIELDS (Huddie Ledbetter)
When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle,
In them old cotton fields back home;

It was down in Louisiana,
Just about a mile from Texarkana,
In them old cotton fields back home.

Oh, when them cotton bolls get rotten
You can't pick very much cotton,
In them old cotton fields back home.

Tomorrow a 150 mile jaunt to Livingston, our home for the next month.

I would be worried that tho melons would end up under the RV:)

Can't beleive that anyone would travel with that many plants. We have one and it's a chore to move around when we set up/take down.

To each his own, I guess.

Wonder if there is a disocunt on watermelons if you buy in bulk? You could fill up your toad...

Bless your hearts for volunteering at Care!
You guys are brave for putting up with the Texas heat and humidity in July!
Enjoy some crawfish for me in downtown Livingston, the place that always has too many vehicles in front! :)
