 Making your way up to the barn you're greeted at the entry by Cactus Jack to the right of the door. He's happy , it's warm , and he's full of love and thoughts of reproduction.  We'll call him Happy Cactus Jack in honor of another Happy Jack I know. This Pic was taken the week before Pickin 13 , the Ozark regional last year.

 OK here is Jack after 2 months of Global warming in the Ozarks. Jack is Not Happy!  He is ready for warmer weather and so am i!!! Jack will get a cropping soon so that when Pickin'  14 rolls around this Memorial day , he'll be happy again. Can't wait.

    The  harsh winter weather has not only stressed out Jack , but it's affected the migrating habits of the graceful Silver Swan.  In all of the 27 years I've lived in Harrison , I have witnessed the migration of Canadian Geese to the south in the fall and to the north in the spring , but never In Harrison have I seen the Swans migrate, that is until now. Below pictured are 2 Swans which got lost from the flock apparently, the one on the right appearing in my Driveway last Friday afternoon and the lame one on the left landed in the back of my pickup truck during working hours this afternoon and refuses to leave !!  Whoda thunk it ??? I could have told you last year that Swans never migrated thru this area But I've learned to never say never or you're gonna be proved wrong.      Come on springtime we're a'missin' you.

                                            happy fan collector

Geoff,

Makes me want to visit Harrison all-the-more. Do you have any Jeeter plants?

Geoff, got my Fan Collector magazine today and that date in Harrison is May 29th.  What about Friday May 28 or May 30th?  Since I have not seen your barn and feel most deprived, is there not more than one day of hops and barley?  Today in N. Georgia, Yea, come on Spring!  Oh, by the way, like your stamp "LIFE IS SIMPLE" 1. Eat 2. Sleep 3. Collect Fans.

Yo Jon,

I understand Sherwood (aka Eskimo Kid) is doing another one of his excellent restorations for you. We all know how much you like those Eskimos Jon!:clap: Maybe he will bring you a purple one.

I hope to see you there Jon, YO!

    I cannot take credit where it's not due , that is the motto of Yer Eddidor , the Mayor of Ackley , IA , Jim Daggs. He prints those notepads up and gives them away at the Ackley Fall meet.  As for the Ozark regional , it's a 4 day weekend for me , Friday thru Monday.

    Some folks will show up on Thursday afternoon & others will not leave until Monday morning. For lots , the regional is but one of the stops on their trek thru the Ozarks.  Come on up & we'll keep the bonfire burnin' for you with a hearty Jon Brown YO :clap::clap::clap:

fans, friends and naked ladies! 

I just wanted to let people know that I am not responsible for the few naked ladies
laying on the ground...

I don't suppose that any of those naked ladies are maids that might clean off the workbench??  
...No?   Darn, I was afraid of that...
  Stay warm til then.

Hey Geoff, Is the reason you named your cactus "Happy Jack" because they're both a couple of p***ks?   Did the package arrive????

Your flower-lined drive beacons me, Geoff!  Pig Pickin' is Fan Fair of the South and it just wouldn't be spring without a trek up to the Dunaway House.  Happy Jack will be in tow and I'll bring some kinda' Cajun food delights along with me!  See ya' around the fan tables.
