We have been unseasonably cool this winter but have been rather dry, but the weatherman says that we will see a bit of a warm up to more seasonable temps of the mid 50's by the end of the week, just in time for the start of our "5th Season," live horse racing at Oaklawn Park.
The crystal clear skies and brilliant sunshine sure have me chomping at the bits for springtime! I realize that spring does not officially begin until April, but here in Arkansas we feel that spring has begun by late February and I start to get anxious in January. Things begin to bud and grow as early as February and, if you are into gardening and have not started, you are way behind by that time.
We've started planning this year's Super Bowl party and will have some great door prizes for our guests! Last years' party was a blast with a lot of hollering at the teams and coaches on TV (in between bites of the great pot-luck dinner everyone provided)!
We are also looking forward to the RV clubs visiting our park. Among the clubs that visited last year were the Melon City Sams' from Hope, Arkansas (birthplace of President Bill Clinton) and Rock City Sams' from Little Rock and surrounding areas as well as Whispering Pines of North Little Rock and surrounding areas.
