This blog covers two days of fishing with Larry Braswell who knows the Caddo River like the back of his hand. We had some good fishing and a good bit of excitement as well. The two days of fishing are covered here,with photos. Continue reading →
As I said in a recent email to the list, I met Larry up here Friday the 22nd and we knocked out all of the work preliminary to
the final prep for the reunion. The kitchen is the biggest remaining
chore, I think, in addition to re-mowing. Lot’s of tick and chigger poison was put out. Timing was good for the spreading of the stuff which is activated by moisture as Larry spread it on Saturday and it rained all day and all night Sunday. Here’s a link to all of the photos taken on this trip. Continue reading →
Made a little trip out to Arkansas this last weekend and spent a pleasant couple of days in Jones Valley. The Valley has a very nice soft look in the winter. Larry and Paula were there as well, and we had a real nice time visiting, getting a few things done, and taking in most of the NFL playoff games. Continue reading →
I’m not sure about the height, but city water is now in Jones Valley, Caddo Gap, Arkansas. And Cousins, from all reports, it tastes very good! This milestone was reached during the last days of February 2010 when our President, Larry Braswell, directed the successful completion of the connections to the end points from the city water termination junction near the well and pump.

Bailiff (trusty canine companion) and I arrived yesterday about 6pm. Jim Bowman and Larry Braswell had already left, but in came Austin and Peaches and today Ryan and Sheila arrived. So it’s not lonely, but is very quiet. J.D. and his crew were completing the demolition of the Diffie cabin — Continue reading →
It’s Thursday. Larry came up last night and today we’ve been about various things. Did a little trash cleanup first (more on that here). We headed into Norman to the trash dump (see below) but alas, it was closed. Larry then mentioned Melba’s Cafe right there in Norman and how about a cup of coffee. Well that sounded just peachy.

(updated April 24, 2010) Had another nice walk up the mountain today. Cool clear skies so Bailiff and I walked briskly to the solar house and back. The damp morning brings out the smells so she had her nose working overtime, periodically sensing something that led her off crashing through the brush. Continue reading →
If you have information about an ancestor you can do a quick blog entry or photo and categorize it by that ancestor’s name. You will find a category list on the right side of the editing page. If your entry involves more than one ancestor, you can check each applicable one. If it involves all of them in general, that is a single “Ancestors” category for that.
For example: my ancestor is Guilford L. Jones, and I am Guilford L. Jones, III and am one of the few 3rd generation descendants because Guilford was the youngest of the 11. I have clicked his box “Ancestor: Guilford” so this entry will show up in a category search.
I have also tagged this entry with “Gil Jones” so it will also show up in the Tag Cloud.
I am writing this while at the valley and am here with Larry. Since I mentioned him I’ll also tag it with his name.
Cousins, Larry Braswell, his mother Effie Lee, and Cathy & Gary Kornegay’s family had a special Christmas raised up a notch. They celebrated Christmas in Jones Valley, and were treated to over four inches of snow on Chirstmas day. Hope … Continue reading →
