But then what good would it really do me? Extra coolness points, for sure. This is a scene from the sideshow before the Great Forest Park Balloon Race.
Greetings from beautiful Blue Springs, Missouri, on the outskirts of Kansas City, where we are spending Thursday night. Tomorrow it's off to Marysville, Kansas, where my wife, Carolyn, went to high school. This weekend is her 50th anniversary class reunion. There's a homecoming parade down the old Main Street Friday afternoon, followed by a tailgate party for the alums and the Friday night high school football game. Saturday night is the anniversary party at the American Legion hall. That's a good thing since they will have a full bar, often hard to find in the conservative Sunflower State.
I'll be poking lenses into all of it and making notes for my anthropology term paper.
