    Luckily we only have a couple squirrels that come to the bird feeders. I love watching them, but a few more squirrels would eat us out of house and home. There are a wide variety of birds that visit our feeders. On rare occasion a painted bunting makes an appearance.

    For the second year Dardanelle Area Chamber of Commerce has coordinated a decoration project. They had a contest for best decorated business, tree lighting ceremony at the Gazebo, Christmas Parade and the very popular trees on the courthouse lawn. I think there are more trees this year and I'm certain the decorations are more elaborate and beautiful. My Re/Max tree is pretty, but I need to step up my game next year. Maybe I will get some more video and/or close up pictures to share. There are also trees and decorations at the foot of the Arkansas River Bridge. It looks great in daylight and dark for all the passing traffic.

    If equine activities is one of your passions, The Free State of Yell may be a great home for you. Yell County is rural and offers lots of properties with acreage. I was just checking the mowers we have assigned to the Highway 7 pasture. While there, I grained and fly sprayed three of our "fine equine" as I fondly call them. Like all of the rest of our crew, they come running when I call their names and whistle.

    Porch time in June has been exceptionally enjoyable lately. The temperatures have been mild. My flowers are blooming. The hummingbirds and other birds are loving their feeders and bird bath in our yard.

    I get quite a bit of work done in the garden also. We are only getting lettuces, radishes, cherry tomatoes, and a few squash and peppers that early, but soon after, we have cucumbers, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, multiple kinds of squash, and green beans. The okra, butter beans, corn, and watermelons will be a while yet. The last time I had watermelons, the racoons beat me to all but one!

    Spring has arrived and so have the weeds. It's a little earlier this year. The weeds are coming up, so to give the grass a better start, we have to spray earlier. Total vegetation control is next on the fence rows.

    I noticed the big tractors out getting the soybean and corn fields ready to plant. The growing season is my favorite time of year. It will be here soon. My tiny tomato and pepper plants are moved outside waiting until it is safe for them to go in the ground. Some will stay in pots so I can keep them after the frost this fall.

    We served grapes coated in a cream cheese/blue cheese mixture and rolled in crushed pecans, shrimp cocktail dip, marinated mozzarella and tomatoes and picks with horseradish cheddar, havarti, dill havarti, Colby Jack, olives, shrimp, salami, grapes, and sweet pepper in different combinations. We also had some store bought spinach and artichoke cheese spread with a variety of crackers. The tasty cheese snacks accompanied Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Moscato, sweet red, and white Zinfandel. There were several other businesses represented and they offered a variety of cheese and wine also. Balanced Books and More had a cheese fountain. Who doesn't love flowing, melted cheese?

    It was another gorgeous day in Harkey's Valley. Everything is budding out and blooming. I'm worried that we'll get more freezing weather and zap the buds. My plum tree is loaded with blooms. The daffodils have been blooming for a while. We still have to hay the livestock. Today Trooper and I went and got hay and put out for the horses, donkeys, and mules. He had to take a dip in the creek to cool off after his run. I love life in the country!

    Some of the fine equine are coming to check on an early feeding time. They get their grain in the evening to help generate some heat. Frank and the Palomino, Pal, are both rescues. Frank has been with us nearly a year and Pal has been here about 10 years.

    The 2016 Dardanelle Christmas Parade was a lot of fun. The streets were lined on both sides with spectators from Merritt Park on AR 22, all the way up Union, and down Front Street to the gazebo. You could see beauty queens, floats, fire trucks, a cement truck, motorcycles, an ambulance, antique cars, sulkys, a wagon and horseback riders passed by waving, marching band music, and parade participants throwing candy. Even the Grinch was handing out candy! There were vendors walking up and down the streets selling cotton candy and lighted sabers. Rockin' R Tanning & Boutique, along with myself, gave out hot chocolate, cookies and candy to the passers-by. A good time was had by all. We've already started making plans for next year's parade.

    The annual event is usually the first Friday of December. Dardanelle Area Chamber of Commerce coordinates and plans the parade and several other events. The Chamber is a good source for a calendar of local events.

    This is the first year for Dardanelle to have Christmas trees purchased, sponsored, and decorated by Dardanelle Area Chamber of Commerce members. The sponsors should have them all decorated by tomorrow for the Annual Christmas Parade. There is also an area on the corner of AR-7/Union Street and Front Street that is also decorated. I believe the local garden club has done those decorations. Yell County Courthouse in Dardanelle has looked beautiful for years with its many holiday lights. The addition of local businesses' and organizations' sponsored trees accents the beauty. It made me smile and feel proud of my town when I drove off the Arkansas River Bridge into Dardanelle tonight.

    I've read great comments and seen colorful pictures from the tree lighting festivities at the gazebo on Front Street Wednesday night. I missed it because I was shopping after work for lights and ornaments for my tree at the Courthouse. One of my friends made some Re/Max balloon ornaments for me.

    It was another great day for working cattle in the Arkansas River Valley. Paige is a Catahoula Spotted Leopard Dog and Roxy is an Australian Cattle Dog. They are part of the working crew. They, along with our horses, help gather, pen, sort, and work the cattle. This was a group of 150 steers and heifers. I love to watch the dogs do their jobs. Watching and riding a good working horse is another joy of mine. Maybe I'll get some video of the horses to share with you next time.

    Harkeys' Valley is an area around the Chickalah; pronounced Cha-key-lah. It is about eight miles south of Dardanelle on Highway 27 in Yell County. Nestled at the foot of Spring and Chickalah Mountains, we have creeks, abundant wildlife, and more. We have a celebrity living out here. Harkeys' Valley is home to Tusk, the Arkansas Razorbacks mascot!

    I always enjoy watching animals and look forward to the arrival of the hummingbirds every year. We don't have as many this year, but there are plenty to enjoy and keep me making over two gallons of hummingbird food every other day! Life in the country is what suits me. Out here we garden, raise our own eggs, ride horses, go for horse drawn wagon rides, host cookouts, and enjoy porch time in our rocking chairs.

    The riders didn't have much luck tonight, but the bull fighters did a great job keeping the riders safe. For me, the little Bay pickup horse stole the show. He knew his job and did it well. He didn't falter; he drug and drove bulls all evening. I love to see a good horse work.

    I've been seeing robins for a while now and the groundhog didn't see his shadow, so hopefully we will have an early spring. The wind definitely blew like March yesterday and the day before here in the Arkansas River Valley. I'm anxious to see the trees bud out, grass green up, flowers bloom and gardens start growing.

    People considering selling their homes should be sorting and clearing the clutter. Sell, donate, store or trash the non essentials. Checking the property's interior and exterior for needed maintenance or repair and completing the noted items will have the home ready for pictures, listing and showing in time for spring's arrival.

    Small town life has its advantages. I met with a retired school teacher Tuesday about selling her house. I have not seen her since junior school in the 80's when she taught at Danville High School. She had a pillow embroidered with students' signatures on her couch. I knew every student from the pillow and was able to tell the teacher where at least half of them are now and what they are doing!

    This morning I'm getting a little work done before heading to friends' place to finish helping with the cooking. Ready to kick off a weekend long celebration with friends and family. Life is good here in the Arkansas River Valley.

    I want to share a little history on Dardanelle with you. Dardanelle is one of the oldest cities in Arkansas, incorporated in 1855. It's Yell County's dual county seat and shares that title with Danville. Since Dardanelle is located on the Arkansas River, it became a primary Arkansas town during the 19th century. Every year it saw hundreds of barges, steam boats and more travel by the town. Situated about halfway between Little Rock and Fort Smith, Dardanelle was a transportation and business hub. It became known as a marketplace for gin, rum and cotton. The Dardanelle Lock & Dam, constructed in the 1960's, led to the formation of Lake Dardanelle.

    Free State of Yell Fest was over and they were moving out the carnival rides, etc as the water rose. I believe the Lord was watching over the festivities. The Corps of Engineers didn't have to open the gates on Dardanelle Lock and Dam on the Arkansas River until Yell Fest was over. Shortly after the last of the stuff was moved out, River Front Park was under water.
