What the Cell Phone Sees - Greers Ferry Lake

Willy gets out and about the Natural state occasionally and gets tapped on the shoulder by his cell phone which is a handy picture taker. Pictures not always great quality but are a reminder of what the Cell phone sees around the state. With the Hawg's Permission, Willy will contribute some of past and present views of "What the Cell Phone Sees"

Sometimes we forget the beauty that we have in Arkansas.


The picture does not do justice!

I haven't been to Greers Ferry since I was a youngster. It is indeed very pretty there.

Can someone please tell me where the name Toad Suck came from?

Lala, I wish I knew! I've wondered about that for years...

What does "Toad Suck" mean anyway?

Well, The answer is quite simple...
Long ago, steamboats traveled the Arkansas River when the water was at the right depth. When it wasn't, the captains and their crew tied up to wait where the Toad Suck Lock and Dam now spans the river. While they waited, they refreshed themselves at the local tavern there, to the dismay of the folks living nearby, who said: "They suck on the bottle 'til they swell up like toads." Hence, the name Toad Suck. The tavern is long gone, but the legend and fun live on at Toad Suck Daze.
