Sept 20: Another day in Colorado Springs hanging out with the Ross family. I had a blast with their kids: Taite, Trinity, Jaden, Jace & Jessa.

Sept 13: I squeezed in mowing the yard before it was supposed to rain. Oops, I mowed over Diesel’s ball. It went flying. Good thing I had new tennis balls in the garage. That’s his favorite outside toy. Then I mowed over a garter snake. I’m surprised my scream as it tried to slither off didn’t alert my neighbors. Ugh!
Sept 14 – I received a watermelon from my neighbor’s garden. Delicious.
Sept 15 – We had some severe weather tonight. Heavy wind, rain & up to golf ball size hail at my house. There was even a tornado spotted in near Derby.
Sept 16 – The picture didn’t turn out well, but it was a great evening. Janel, Gayle and I went to see “An Improbable Pride and Prejudice” at The Kechi Playhouse in, um, Kechi. It is a converted church. This particular play was a take on Pride & Prejudice and was a great show. Well worth the $9.
Sept 17 – Pupusas!!! I was ridiculously excited to meet a friend and try out a Salvadoran restaurant near work for lunch. The pupusas were excellent! The tamales were good too. And the sweetest people run the place. I’m definitely going back there.
Sept 18 – I flew to Colorado Springs for a few days to visit friends. Trinity is now 8 and today she was my shadow. She graciously is letting me stay in her room.
Sept 19 – Church at Springs Calvary this morning. Almost everywhere has amazing views of the mountains.

Sept 6: A couple for friends got together for a Labor Day cookout and volleyball at East Lake in Newton.
Sept 7: I have a few friends who are training for a triathalon. Talking with them this weekend, I was inspired to dig my bike out of the cobwebs. Mom bought us Schwinn 10-speeds circa 1983, I had it worked over a few years ago and it's still going strong. I am by no means a graceful rider.
Sept 8: An eventful day ended with a small gathering of neighbors for Una's birthday celebration. She's such a special lady and a blessing to me & Diesel!
Sept 9: What, you don't drill holes to fix your Salvadorian coconut earrings that you broke when you put in your pocket on a windy Kauai night? Don't look too closely at the finished product, there might be an extra hole.
Sept 10: The clouds were gorgeously illuminated by the setting sun. I am so glad I had to make a run to the grocery store and got to see it! (Hannah - relax, I pulled over at the park to take the picture.)
Sept 11: Opening weekend of the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson. There was a mass of humanity there, but it was a good time.
Last year I discovered fried cheese curds. Yum!
My friends, The Emily Judson Band, were playing and we listened to few songs. Great job, guys!
I had never seen the butter sculpture before. Impressive.
The piglets in the birthing center were so cute.
Sept 12: I have been craving mussels and indulged for lunch today.

August 30: I finally opened this bottle of Bordeaux that I brought back from France. I really like French reds.
The director decided to cast the hags as sci-fi characters. Odd...
This kangaroo was thoroughly enjoying his afternoon snooze in the shade.
And the penguins are always a hit with me.
