    June should be good, if you can catch a cooler weekend. It can get miserably hot, mid summer. Make sure to book the site, early. Haven't been to Hot Springs in a long time, but would love to come see everyone, again.

    Early June sounds good to me. Heck - with sequestration and furloughs, I might even get there on a Thursday. Planning to be there for now. Cakes is in charge of COBBLERS!!!!!

    Good morning,

    Lump and I were at Hot Springs yesterday to visit my favorite masseur. While we were there, Lump rode around on his bicycle through the campgrounds. The bathrooms in the middle of the park are boarded up. Those are the ones with the showers. When we inquired, we were told that they are being remodeled and will not be available until July.

    The really interesting factoid to go with this is that the campground is sold out next weekend. So, it is sold out with most of the bathrooms closed and inoperable. I hope that they are renting extra port-a-pots that weekend.

    Long and short of it, we may want to reconsider our plans.

    That is some stinky news. Perhaps waiting until the fall hang is best.

    Thanks for the Re-con Sluggie and Lump! Whenever this is held I'll look forward to seeing you both again.

    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
