cooling off


They call this place "The Slab." Often, the place where the road crosses the river is underwater, but this is summer, and the river is low.When people in the Ozarks want to have a good time, they go to the river and park themselves in it for the day. The water isn't cold, for those of us who come from the Northeast, but it's refreshingly cool. The kids build dams and catch crawdads, just as my brother and I did in Arkansas creeks years ago. Flashback.
