So, I've now arrived in Arkansas for a week's visit, by way of Atlanta.
Last night was some very enjoyable visiting with family up in Little Rock, while today after a late start we drove down to Magnolia.
Tomorrow and Friday will be here around town, while Saturday we're having a big family get-together back up in Little Rock.
--Seeing the first mockingbird of the trip: late morning today in the parking lot outside the Barnes & Noble/Starbucks in Little Rock: it came up and perched near us on a car.
--Coming across Xian faux-rock stations.
--Seeing those weird birds I've never been able to identify* at the Love's truck stop in Prescott.
--Standing next tp a mimosa: this afternoon in Magnolia on the lot where the family house used to stand.
