AKA Mark and Leann go west vol. 5
On our way home I got to stop in Kansas. So that’s where I stood,
in front of a very good friend I hadn’t met until last week. How wonderful to finally get to meet Pattie! We’ve become good friends through our blogs and email, I finally got to meet her and Gene in person!
Here are Pattie and her husband Gene, posing for me out in the clean Kansas air.
Me with Pattie, enjoying the rural scenery.
Two of the three dogs, Chaco, the short one, and Bailey, the tall one. Herman would not pose. Thank you, guys, for the wonderful mac and cheese, the portrait, and putting us up! What a magical visit!
Then the last stop was in Kansas City, at the Steamboat Arabia museum. This museum is full of all the stuff that was on one steamboat that sunk in the Missouri River in 1856. The huge boat was laden with goods to be sold out west. We couldn’t believe all the stuff on one steamboat, just cases and cases of things. It’s a wonderful museum and a great dose of history.
Lots of dishes!
Lots of tools!
I loved this shirt with the heart over the wearer’s heart.
They recreated one of the paddle wheels and you can watch it paddle water.
Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places Lynn Krawczyk spends her life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If youâ€™d like to join her by posting a photo on Sunday of places youâ€™ve been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on her Sunday posts telling her where she can find you/your photo and sheâ€™ll add a link to her sidebar so others can find you. I am one of those that Lynn has badgered into joining her, I have changed it to â€œwhere I stoodâ€, because right now Iâ€™m sitting in front of the computer, not standing anywhere.
