It has been a long time since I have posted to this blog. There have been a lot of reasons, mainly because I moved out of what I would call the Ozarks region for about three and a half years. I am back in Springfield now and hope to get back into the Ozarks scene. In the meantime you guys will need to endure a few photos of the beautiful state of Minnesota. My youngest daughter Amy was working there for the last year in the Mesabi Range located between Duluth and International Falls. Gorgeous part of the country.
