Traveling with the Inman’s, Part 3
HARRISON, AR – Ha, I fooled you. Although I said our next stop after leaving Eureka Springs would be in Little Rock, we only made it about 35 miles or so before we decided to pull into this nice little RV Park. We got up early before leaving Eureka to do a couple loads of laundry. It was already hot even though we were up by 8 a.m. and it was doubly hot in the laundry room. Anyway, to make a long story short, it wasn’t until noon that we once got on the road. Down the road, Cynthia said, rather laughingly, she was ready to go home. I knew she was tired, so I told her to pull into the first RV park we came to (she does most of the driving), we would stop, chill out (see picture of Boomer by the pool), rest up and take it easy for a while. The RV Park was so nice, we decided to stay for a few days. We went to a movie, to a nice steak house and, literally “took it easy.”
It rained the two days we were here, and the weather cooled off and we had a very comfortable, enjoyable time. In the morning, our plans are to get up bright and early and hit the road again for a little place between Little Rock and Memphis. There we will stop for one night and watch the baseball All-Star Game (just in case you missed it, no less than eight Yankees made the team). Speaking of The Yankees, I’ve been able to watch most of the games on MLB.TV, since we’ve been in places with good internet streaming, which has made me very happy. When Papa John is happy, things are going well.
Once we get to Memphis, we plan to call Larry Pennington and renew an old Heavener acquaintance. And then things will be restored.
