We've finally returned home after a 10 day trip through Oklahoma and Arkansas. We drove from Houston up through Texas and Oklahoma to Tulsa for a visit with our youngest son and his family. From there we traveled to Springdale, Arkansas to visit my husband's brother. Then we left there and traveled down through central Arkansas and Little Rock to a little town called Warren.
In Warren we attended the class reunion of the classes of 1953 and 1954 for Banks, Arkansas High School which is no longer in operation. Each class had less than 12 graduates, so we didn't have a big crowd, around 43 I think. I really learned a lot about small town life by listening to them talk. The majority of them still live around the area.
Not only did we have a good time visiting family and friends, but I also enjoyed the scenery. We stayed on the Interstates most of the time, but in Arkansas we traveled a lot of back roads and coming home through northern Louisiana and then East Texas on the back roads, so we saw many interesting towns. I must say the land of northwest Arkansas is really beautiful as is most of northern Arkansas. Read three great books while traveling. But being home again is the best.
