We are the Cantrell’s, our home is in Southern Illinois, and it is a beautiful place to live. There is so much history here that is seldom told, Beautiful scenery that I wan’t you to know about, maybe someday you can plan a trip, and come to enjoy, what we that live here enjoy every day.

Here in the town of Herod, population of about 300 people  🙂 I am sure there are more, but we are all scattered out with a few home’s here and there,  it is  very quiet with  lots of room to romp, and play both for the grand kids, and our animal kids,

Although I want to share with you all the beauty we have here, the site will be about all kinds of thing’s, our like’s. things we do and, and thing’s I think you might like too.
