"OK Linc...if you don't do anything else today, you need to know about the world famous Fletcher's corny dog - and there is a style and showmanship to eating the thing...."

“OK Lincoln…if you don’t do anything else today, you need to know about the world famous Fletcher’s corny dog – and believe me when I say there is a style and showmanship to eating the thing…

Often the frontside has a bug of unknown name (except for the “Well hello there Nosey” nickname bestowed on him during the picture-taking)

One of many cool bridges that span the creeks, ravines, and rivers in the mountains of northern Arkansas…this one near Cotter is appropriately called the “Cotter Bridge” and was built in 1930. The bridge spans the White River. It has National Register of Historic Places as well as National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark designations. It begs the “they don’t make like they used to” statement to said aloud. I wouldn’t mind owning the home on the ridge that has this view out the back door….

As if on clue, the look most fish in the White River fear….

As if on cue for the camera, the straight-on look most fish (and some amateur fishermen)  in the White River fear…thanks to my Dad, and my brother TR, and our guide David Capps (The Fisherman’s Lodge) for patiently allowing me a few minutes to interrupt our fishing for something I am much better doing than just fishing….

The Royal Scotties stand guard over the front yard, trying to scare all the wild critters away with nothing more than a high-pitched, ear piercing bark..and perky ears.

The Royal Scotties are vigilant in standing guard over the front yard, scaring all the wild critters (squirrels, raccoons, armadillos, possums, robins, June bugs, geckos, and the occasion stray dog and neighbor’s wandering cat) away with nothing more than a high-pitched, ear piercing bark..and those oh-so-perky ears.
