My apologies, but I’m going to have to discontinue the blog for now.  I’m hoping this is temporary.  I’ve simply got so much going on in my life that I don’t have time to keep it updated.  If you join my RSS feed, you’ll know when I start posting events again.  I’m hoping to actually have a website and database set up where you can add your own events.

December Running Late…

The Prairie Grove Clothesline Fair is this weekend.  I’ve been several times and it’s got a lot of crafts and good stuff for the kids.  It’s usually a few bucks for parking.

 

I’ll work on updating the next events this weekend.  

 

Go Hogs!
