Dang Daddy Long Legs

My wife and I spent a very nice weeeknd in 2004 in a small cabin at the top of Mt. Nebo in Arkansas. The scenery was very good, the cabin romantic and isolated at the very top of the mountain. My wife, a pro photographer had a blast with her camera on the many hikes we took.
One thing we noticed on the top of the cabin's television was a small spiral notebook where the owners of the cabin intended for folks to write down their experience about being at the top of Mt. Nebo. Most of the entries were profoundly boring.
Then I ran across an entry by Lindsey Rene Bissell, age 14. It was a keeper worth a photograph and a trip home with us. Below, I post her entry into the noteboook.

Just in case you can't read it here is what it says verbatim:

Hey Yall,

I know God created daddy long legs but that doesn't mean I have to like them Oh and lovers leap is really pretty y'all should get a picture.

Lindsey Rene' Bissell

Then you should stay away from black pants to which, according to Lindsey, they are attracted. Matter of fact I think I saw one here at my house, WALLA GO.
