Two nights ago I tubed down the Rio Grande River
on a white inner tube, the sort that little kids use before learning to swim. It was just after dawn and the water was cold and fast. During this adventure, I made a stop at an old museum near the bank of the river. Two stories with wide-plank wooden floors, the museum was filled with Al Capone artifacts. Back in the water, I finished my tubing trip and dream with a splash as the Rio Grande fed into a secluded cove at Lake Norfork.
I did recently drive over to see the Mississippi River at the Osceola River Port. Maybe it reminded me of the Rio Grande? On Saturday afternoon, I made a quick trip inside the Lepanto Museum while at the Terrapin Derby. And of course, the Bat Cave is filled with artifacts – not exactly Al Capone related, but Momma does have gangster tendencies.
