Boondockers teaching us and more stuff

 Cullman,   AL

We are still enjoying the visits of our Boondockers guests.    Some recent guests remarked how they love to visit waterfalls and would be seeing some in the local area.  Waterfalls?   Here?   Where?   They told us about Larkwood Falls.    So, a day or so later I Googled it.  Oh my gosh, almost right in town.  

It's in the subdivision named Larkwood.   These falls are a natural spill over from Lake Catoma.   What a view from several of the homes.   This home is around the corner and does not have a view of the falls but I am impressed.

I think I have mentioned before that we found a small cafe in the nearby town of Eva.   We drove over on Friday for their daily special.

Chicken filling, cranberry sauce, cole slaw, mashed potatoes, a roll, green beans, ice tea and cake.  Cost is $5.50 plus tax and tip.  Why cook when we can eat like this for $15.00.

I was so pleased that we got the raised vegetable bed set up and cabbage, tomatoes, onions and peppers planted in it.   Two nights ago the temp got down in 27 and there was a light frost.    No more tomato and pepper plants.  Here we go again.   

We all know who is the boss around here so we got a welcome mat admitting to it.

We currently have  Boondockers here on their way back to Indiana from Florida.   They are staying 3 nights as his step-mother lives in the area.    Another Boondocker is arriving in about 2 hours.   We thought we had a 2 and a half week interval between those that left earlier in the week and those arriving not until May.   That was short lived.   Three more reservations made in the last few days.

Our son Lennie is the President of a Christian motorcycle group.  They have monthly meetings.  Today was their April meeting at his and Lois' house.  It was also our great-grandson Jordan's 10th birthday. We were invited to join them all for lunch.

It poured all night.  Heavy rains.   Thankfully it stopped late morning and the sun came out.  Can't imagine all these people in their house at one time.   It is always a treat to observe this group.  The women sit and socialize.   The men do the preparation, serving, cleanup etc.   Cool.  

I just heard thunder again.   And there is Biscuit on the porch running in circles.  He stays close to me when he hears those noises.   And now the weather alert just went off.   Severe thunderstorm headed this way.    Biscuit is close by me.

Until next time.


  1. You and Len have been busy, but sounds like a happy busy. Love your door mat. Enjoy all your visitors

  2. It's always odd how Strangers know more about things in our home town that we do.
    Looks like Jordan enjoyed his Birthday.
    Poor Biscuit is not the only dog we know that is scared of storms.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Love the welcome mat. Cooper is definitely the king of our house :)
