Class of '31

That car is a 1931 too. This was the 75th class reunion for these Yates Center (KS) High School graduates. The fact that there are 5 left is fairly impressive. They are all around 93 years old. That's my Aunt Annie there in the near window in the back.

Our Lawn

We're psyched about our new grass. This looks so much better than it did in April. We used to have patches of bare dirt.

Geese and Flag

These are not the same geese pictured several days ago. At least if they are, they are not in the same place. This is near the VFW Hall which is also near the Kaw River.

Cops! 2

They got the cuffs on him and took him away. Today I looked at the police blotter in the newspaper and the only thing I could find referenced somebody getting arrested for throwing water balloons. Now I don't know if that was this situation, but if it was, one wouldn't think water balloons would merit the pulling of guns.

We inadvertently witnessed an arrest Saturday night when we went for a walk. We had just seen the kid come over a fence.

I'm not sure what kind of hawk or vulture this is, but he might have the biggest wingspan I've seen in my home state. Again, seen at Clinton Lake near Lawrence, KS.

Sanders Mound

This fellow was sitting all by himself on this hill that overlooks Clinton Lake near Lawrence, KS. This image reminds me vaguely of Edward Hopper paintings. Except his works were usually dark.

Even More Geese

Clinton Lake near Lawrence, KS. This almost the whole flock we saw. They were just hanging out in one of the camping areas. They weren't particularly scared of us but we couldn't exactly just walk up to them.

Bridge over the Kaw

We walk down to Burcham Park (Lawrence, KS) often, and this is the second time I've seen such a nice reflection. The first time I didn't have the camera. Tell me what you can find in the details.

Sorry about the flash reflection. This place served one of the best mochas I've had in some time. And it had that very pattern in the foam.

EMT Drummer

This fellow, Jeff Cohen, didn't show up in the last photo, so this is give him equal time. Actually I'm not convinced he's a drummer, even though he plays well. I think he's a standup comic. Or maybe a sit-down-behind-the-drums comedian.

EMT in Motion

The Eric McFadden trio returned to the KC area Wednesday night for a gig at The Hurricane in Westport. More pics of the band and the Westport area to follow in the coming days. Westport is a really groovy little neighborhood of cafes and bars.This was our first visit since moving to the area. However last night was about Eric and our old friend James Whiton the bassplayer. Jeff Cohen handles drums for the band.
