The Weirdest Theme Park Development In Kansas City, Kansas



We stopped at the home of my wife's sister and her husband in Kansas City, Kansas, on the way to see the rest of the family way out on the prairie. Dorothy and Bill have 11 acres on the edge of the KC metropolitan area. Bill, my brother in law, spent 35 years as a lineman and supervisor for Kansas Power and Light. He can do anything involving tools, electricity, plumbing or carpentry and he has quite an imagination. Now that he is retired, he is designing an what amounts to an improbable mini-theme park on their land. It's impossible to describe the details - this skull mask behind the wheel of a beat-up 1936 Chevy pick up truck with its own odd gas station is just one little part. There's lots more under construction. I'll come back in the spring for a fuller treatment.

TOMORROW: Cattle with attitude
