It gets complicated, I'm going to have DNA done before long--maybe I can at least get it down to East, West or South Slovak.
You got the last sentence right!!!;):)

It is, Spring.
Not being able to get there (yet) on my own, I contracted a photograher/PhD, from Brataslava to go take pics.He did an outstanding job, something of a standard and aspiration .
I live very close(12 miles and spent much time there as a youth) to a little town where my roots are interred, it is a duplicate of this village---strange how some things are given or passed on to one.


Hope you are feeling better---Ax.

60 degree nights oh boy what I'd give--lowest here has been 78F--Air conditioner works overtime.
Got grass to cut today, going to wait till late afternoon.

Hang in there, Ax.
I was on the way home from work the other night and heard Eddie Stubbs on WSM say that it was 82 degrees in Nashville.........at 1:30 a.m.!

P.S.- A dip in the creek is always good!

And Nashville is 175 mi N. of here--they get hit with some strange stuff up there.
Used to go swimming at Rock Crusher an old Pit mine, spring fed --it was paradise.

Guess I should post this one in pests and problems--but--imagine the insect world mutating.

Rather good news on the Gulf--the Plug appears to be working--but I figure a decade on getting back to normal--- the long term effects are partially unknown and partially ill defined.
Fellow down there ,last name Noah--has launched Operation Noah's Ark--putting as many species as he can in controlled environment--scientists expect some to disappear.

The bug pic , attached mutations as a result of the spill?--maybe not that drastic--

Temp broke the record yesterday here expect 110 and the air hangs as lead.
Could do 120 F and 85% humidity in one chapter of my life, but not now--

Unless one experienced the Gulf Coast as I did in the time span of the '50's--'80's, they cannot grasp the meaning of Lands Set Aside.

c1952--

Dad always made sure of a vacation--he worked steady and hard.

We always left home around 3 A.M-to get down the line--before it got too hot to drive.For the '39 Chevy and us--:)--

4/45 airconditioning, 4 windows down, 45 miles an hour., 300 miles on a two lane highway to my quest for Buried Treasure, Pirates , Sharks and everything spinning in my mind that I would encounter!!

The Gulf----Gods Gift.

"Faces of War"

Not for everyone, but a reminder that the U.S. and the soil you stand on ,does not come cheap. I claim no credits for the pics, ran across them while doing some research for a Good Buddy of mine, he has to-- Forget.
