Lawrence, KS

Where did William Burroughs live? I actually asked somebody this tonight when we were walking downtown.

Lawrence has 4 times the coffeehouses that Albuquerque has, and they are all within 3 blocks of each other. Lawrence is obviously a very happenin' little place. Very attractive. Very green with the spring rains. Many live music events and lots of groovy little delis and and art shops and bookstores.

I have ancestral educational conflicts with Lawrence. However I don't think Lucy is going to be too moved by those. Cost of living and housing situations still have to be factored in.

We visited Baldwin City earlier today and it is an idyllic little college town of its own. And I was thrilled to discover an espresso shop there: Espress Yourself.

Here, there, Ottawa, all these places are unbelievably green (Remember I just came from the brown old desert so my greenness standards are not high.) and the grass is thick and tall, indicating that the ground has been too wet from rain to cut the grass.

All this time I've been envisioning going to a small conservative Kansas town, and now I might end up in a place that has been called Berkeley East. We might have to continue looking at the area smaller towns.

Tomorrow night, a Royals game!

Hey Wayne, have fun at the Royals game! Our teams are in bad shape, but going to the ballpark is always fun. Seattle is just pitiful at this point. It's one thing to be bad, but being bad with an $85 million payroll is just silly!

Yes I can't believe how bad the Royals are this year. The pitching they were counting on didn't materialize. Starting tonight will be, according to some, the young man who was the "best pitching prospect in the minor leagues." (He's not in the minors anymore obviously.) His name is Zach Greinke. I look forward to seeing him. He just started a game in Albuquerque a couple of weeks ago for the Omaha Royals.

What is up with the Mariners?
