Fish are still biting

As you can tell from the smile on Gary's face, the fish are
still biting at Turtle Beach, Manteca. This time the fish
are larger. Take a look at the one near Gary's right hand.
He caught another one later that was close to the same size.
We are enjoying the view and the birds. Lots of pelicans
fly over every day. This is a wonderful campground.
The people are very friendly here. Oh yes, Gary is off
fishing again this morning.

Fishing at Turtle Beach, NACO campground

Gary and I stay at Turtle Beach outside Manteca, CA. when
we return to Ca. My parents also come down for a week.
Our great-niece and great-nephew usually come up for the
week-end. Gary enjoys this campground because of the great
fishing. Payton, our great-niece, decided to fish with Great-
grandpa and Uncle Gary. She had a great time. She caught
7 of the catfish that are on the stringer. This was Payton's first
time fishing and she might have gotten the fishing itch, only
time will tell. If you look closely at her hands, you can tell
that she likes to catch them but does not like to touch them.
Dad was kept busy putting the fish on the stringer. He and
Gary sure had a lot of fun watching Payton catch fish.

Payton is a cheerleader for one of the town youth

The Thing

As we traveled down I-8 between Wilcox and Benson, Arizona,
Gary and I have been reading the ads telling folks that they
must stop off to see "The Thing". So, this year, Gary and I
stopped. It cost $1 per person to see "The Thing"; however,
there are lots of other "Things" to see. We thought we got our
$1 worth. Sorry, I will not post a picture of "The Thing". If you
want to see it, you'll have to stop. There is a Dairy Queen there
and another store for you to browse.

Turkey Track

Turkey Track is located south of Waldron, Arkansas.
They have a Blue Grass Fesitval here in October.
Camping is available for over 3000 vehicles. We arrived on
October 1. The festival began on Oct. 13. There were
quite a few people here when we arrived. We are camped
out by the pond. Gary was able to catch brim and bass.
We are camped next to our friends Jim and Sherri Reed. Jim
plays fiddle and guitar, Sherri plays mandolin. So when we
are not fishing, watching the shows, or kicking back, we
manage to get in a little playing of our own.

Opie, Jim and Sherri's dog, is checking out the brim that
Gary caught.

Turkey Track golf cart parade

I cannot believe how many golf carts are here at Turkey Track.
We would sit and watch people come in pulling a golf cart behind
their trailers or motorhomes.
I can probably find every kind of golf cart ever manufactured.
Tuesday, people decorated their carts for a parade. What
a great parade. We enjoyed watching the parade and
catching the candy.

The sign says, eat beef or chicken, not turkey

This is one mode of transportation for those who do not
have golf carts.

Cash's White River Hoedow

While in Mountain View, Arkansas, we attended Cash's White
River Hoedown. The show was so great, we attended
both Friday and Saturday night. Cost for the show
is $18 per adult with children 16 and under free.
The music and comedy acts are fantastic. If you
get to Mt. View, be sure to take in this show. If you are
like us, you will want to attend both Friday and
Saturday nights.

Aunt Minnie Miles shares her many medical
cures with the audience. She carries her
medicine in her bag. She has medicine
that will cure baldness and some that will keep
you from coughing.

This is Lotta Miles- Aunt Minnie's sister.
