May 20, 2009 - Last day in Kansas

It was a beautiful day for my last day in Kansas. Jeff, Jason, their friend Chris and I played golf. I let them all beat me as usual. Then it was off to Kauffman Stadium for the Royals verses the Indians. Jeff got us great seats as a treat in the newly remodeled stadium. The Royals were down the whole game and a lot of fans left after the bottom of the 8th with the score 5-2 Indians. Big mistake. With one out the Royals hit back to back homers on two pitches to get the crowd fired up. They then had a single, triple and sacrifice fly to win...

May 15, 2009 - KC's WWI Museum

I’ll bet you didn’t know the National World War I Museum is in Kansas City did you? Neither did I. Jeff took me yesterday. The site was dedicated in 1921 as a memorial to WWI. In 2006 a major expansion was completed and the Museum opened. Previously there was no National Museum dedicated to WWI. The museum tells the story of WWI from the causes through the aftermath. It is very well done and filled with loads of artifacts, exhibits, videos and many volunteers who are a wealth of knowledge. Want to know why tanks first were called tanks or...

May 12, 2009 - Shawnee 5/12

Shawnee 5/12/09 It’s been a pretty uneventful past few days here in Shawnee at the J’s. We have been doing some work over at Jillian’s new (old) house, doing some yard work at the J’s, playing with the Wii and I’ve been doing a lot of reading. Jeff, Jason and I played golf yesterday afternoon, I forget what we shot. It looks like more of the same until Friday when we go to Manhattan – location of KSU - for lunch with nephew Jason and to see him get some award. We did go see the new Star Trek movie. If you were ever a Star Trek fan I...

May 5, 2009 - Littleton to Shawnee

After a good nights sleep, breakfast with Sam and a goodbye hug from Caroline it was farewell to Littleton and on to Shawnee. The sun was out and the traffic wasnt as bad as expected leaving town. Once on the road it was mostly long flat vistas across eastern Colorado and most of Kansas. The weather turned cloudy near the Colorado Kansas border, but it never rained. I looked for funnel clouds, never saw one probably a good thing. There were temptations along the way including a live 5 legged steer, the worlds largest prairie dog and in...

Feb 17, 2009 - Off to Shawnee

I approach the threshold of the Lemonade Vision Quest in awe and in fear. I approach it surrounded by your care and prayers. As you have time today, please take a moment to thank, bless and release my reproductive organs -- they gave me the greatest blessings in my life – my beloved children. I’ve even arrived at the point where I can ask you to bless the cyst which started this journey. Also, please send me compassion that I can pass on to the health care providers who will be working to help me heal and trying hard to keep me comfortable....

Feb 17, 2009 - Mission Accomplished

Hello everyone. This is Lem filling in. I've been apprised by unnamed and confidential sources that indeed the problem was an actual softball. Apparently, it had been in there since 1952 when Kathy dared her older sister to practice french kissing on said softball. Those intimate with the incident had few details, except that captain hook and a vacuum cleaner were involved. Ask the source not me! Apparently the whole incident was covered up and obfuscated to eager offspring unawares of the deceit. Now it has been brought to light. (pun...
