I think I've found a new use for Facebook. I enjoy being on Facebook because I can keep up with family and friends and see pictures of children as they grow. I've even re-established friendships after our connections had been lost.

Red River offers great backdrop for photos

I think I will never tire of the sight at this time of year, when we turn off State Highway 91 to go to the Red River just below Denison Dam. Most years, it is a carpet of royal blue that takes my breath away no matter how many times I see it.
