Aug 18, 2011 - Lyons,Kansas

We got out of Dodge around 0730 and headed East to Lyons,Kansas to the little town where I was born. It was the County Seat and 5000 strong back in the day. Today its still the county seat, but less than 5000 strong. The only thing that has changed since Uschi and I went through there a few years back was that the tree tops have grown back around the court house. I showed Alec where I use to live then he got a haircut at the local barber.insurance man's shop. I then took some flowers for my Mother's & Brother's grave and we hit the road...

Sep 1, 2008 - My Hometown-Lyons,KS

The old town was less then 5000 population when I left has actually grown some. I went to see where our old house use to be. The street still was a dirt road as it was when I lived there. Progress. I didn't really go there to see anyone. Most of the people I cared about were either gone or dead. I just wanted to show Uschi where I grew up and that I really did have to walk across town to go to school. We even had lunch at a Mexican restaurant, unheard of back then. The day was pretty good for me and I think Uschi enjoyed it also.
