    Good trout fishing at Bennet Springs there in Lebanon, Mo!

    If the Corps had sent me to duty like that I would have thought that I died and went to heaven! ---lol

    I had a piece of land one minute from the entrance to the park.

    My kids grew up on week-ends at the stream.

    Sold the land years ago and the kids have grown up of course.

    It still draws me. Was there last may.

    Good retirement plan!

    Semper Fi,
