This is so wonderful! I'm delighted to meet an AR southern girl! I've been reading non stop about the state ever since I heard about the Ozark Medieval Fortress project. I want to drop everything and move back to the States! I'm an American living in France:)It's great to meet you!
Hey great to hear from you too! I want to see France before I get too old to enjoy it.I'm born and raised in Arkansas, my grandchildren are the 12th generation of our family here in Arkansas, and you couldn't blast me out of here! Of course, I'll go visit other places....
I will be coming to you with any Arkansas questions then! Watch out lady:) Actually I have a silly question. Do they serve sweet tea in restaurants in AR?
Oh absolutely! it will make your teeth hurt!
I hope there were plenty of diamonds in Diamond Cave! :)
I saw that card and immediately thought of diamonds too. I looked and looked when in Arkansas, and could not find any.
Great card! Happy PFF! (Marie is happy!)
Great post and love the responses to all the comments/questions!
Welcome aboard, love your card, and what a great family history, reminds me of that song, "diamonds on the souls of your feet" Paul Simon I think. Happy PFF
Thanks for all the comments! No Diamonds in Diamond Cave, it just looks like there are! It is privately owned and not open to the public right now for conservation reasons. The diamond mine is in the southern part of he state however, and you can mine for diamonds there! Diamond Cave used to be a big tourist thing though, I think they closed it down in the late 70's or so. The story of Sam Hudson finding it is a very interesting tale and part of Newton County history.
