One of our "low water bridges" in Madison County.
This one is at Clear Creek near Cliffy, Arkansas.

According to the Forest Service "topo." map it is fed
by two springs about one half of a mile up stream 
from this point.  I have been driving over it for over 
five years now and have never seen it dry yet.

One foggy morning I was coming down this road on
my motorcycle when suddenly I could not see the road
at all.  After stopping, clearing my face shield and
 looking around I could see that the water was running
over the bridge as in the picture above.  It was running
over only about three inches deep so it was no problem.

I just love the simplicity of this drive train.
OSHA might not like it.  But as a retired auto
tech., I think it's great.

It is not obvious from the photo, but this is the 
same tractor that is on the header to this blog. 
It just happened to be a rainy day when I was
trying out a $1.00 camera.  That is right, the cost
was only $1.00, used on eBay.  Just trying to see
how cheap it was possible to get a decent camera.

Now there is one mean looking cannon.
Well, it sorta looks like a cannon.

This cannon is located at Fort Rock Family Camp.
Of course it's purpose is to entertain the kids.
It's ammunition is "tin cans".
The kids love it.

You have grand kids.  Don't that give you some 

A few years ago I built a "cannon" for here at 
the house.  It was a welded thing mounted on 
a couple of car wheels.  It did not shoot anything
but just went "BOOM".  And of course the 
grand kids really enjoyed it.

Grandpa get your tools out.

Sorry about this image
This fossil is "reddish" but not that red.
The excess red is probably because I had the cheap
old camera pointed the wrong way in the light.

But the point of interest to me is;
that these fossils are all over the patch of woods I own.
And, that is at an elevation of 2000 above sea level about
500 miles from the closest ocean and they are fossils of
sea shells.

Yes, proof of the deluge or what we call Noah's
flood in the Holy Bible.  Scoff if you want, but
I have over three acres of proof that things happened
just as the Bible said.

Now there is something that very few people ever see.
The inside of a hollow tree.  My little camera has revealed
another mystery to you.

A few years ago my wife and daughter wanted
me to make a cross and put it up in the yard.
One of my favorite hymns is "The Old Rugged
Cross."  Of course that was the thought that
kept going through my mind.  So nothing slick
or fancy would do.  It needed to be old and rugged.

You guessed it.  I make it out of old railroad ties.

Tired of your old life.
Don't only start a new year,
but get into a relationship with Jesus Christ and
start a new life.
