“Goin' to the River”


Description from ClovisakaLois: Labor Day is almost upon us and time to take a break! This is reminescent of the times when our sons were children and we'd load up, go to the river (or lake) and just collect pretty rocks or make a fire to roast weiners and make smores. Sometimes even fish, but I always wound up baiting hooks and untangling lines from brambles or logs. to remember those times!

    Fabulous pick with a nice touch of nostalgia. The Gaea pieces are too perfect! Love them with the Czech glass you’ve chosen. I miss our Labor Day traditions, too, for summer’s last hurrah before kids go back to school and fall routines take over. We had the local fair, with rides and horse pulls and sheep dog trials and carnie games and food and music and fireworks, but I think I like your close-knit family experience more in the rear view, if you know what I mean. Love this pick!

    We went to the river a lot when I was in my 20′s, living in Corpus Christi TX. It was great – we had tubes from huge truck tires, and a rope tied to one big tree, & all! Once the girls teamed up against the guys – we did a terrible thing – bought dogfood & pulled off the labels of several cans & included it! They ate it but nobody got sick so it was OK I guess – when we told them, we all got tossed in with our clothes on – but they conceded that we “won!”
