Friday morning fog in Coffeyville, Kansas. The GM plant in OKC... now closed.There's a story behind this picture. When I was in high school (1960's), my parents went to an estate sale. Mama bought this picture which had been stored for many years between and the edges were crumbling. So Mama tenderly trimmed away the edges leaving as much of the gold border as she could. Then she preserved the picture with decoupage onto this board that we antiqued. It's really a beautiful old picture. I wish I knew how old it is. It's now back at mama's. Just for Sharon and Elizabeth.The beautiful blue sky through the pecan trees beside our house.We left for Norman on Friday, returned on Monday to find this hay field had been freshly baled. Same field in the first picture with fog.Our home at Walter Johnson Park, Coffeyville, Kansas.Baseball park across the parking lot from our house. Maybe we will get to watch a baseball game or two.The Walter Johnson monument.

Part of the fair grounds that is part of the park where we are parked. Corky is our next door neighbor out our door. Corky's house buddy.There is an abundance of pets among the RV'ers here. Pam & Terry, neighbors behind us.A step back in time. The truck is older than the gas prices... I remember gas I this price and I'm not as old as this truck.You can sure see some bizarre things on the side streets of Small Town, USA. This strange fireplace happens to be in Dearing, Kansas. Picture taken out our dining area window... squirrel with breakfast. They also use the top of our 5er for a race track. The weather has been beautiful here with temps in the 70's and 80's. The people are the typical, friendly RV'ers. There's not a lot to do here in Coffeyville, Kansas. However, the Dalton Gang demise is due to be re-enacted here tomorrow. And we hear that the Coffeyville Community College athletic teams are pretty salty.
We are only an hour away from daughter, Stephanie, and family. Last night we rode over to watch young Logan make 7 of the 8 touchdowns his team scored in two games. We're glad that it's flag football. He's only 5, after all. However, there was still plenty of tackling going on. They're boys, after all. Warm up stretches.And the game is under way. The only touchdown not made by Logan was a play designed by Coach Vaughan whereby the quarterback, Logan, receives the ball from the center and then sneaks it back around to the center and he takes off through the middle ... for happy valley. Willie, our other neighbor, who is an adopted Shepherd-Lab mix. Willie with her "daddy," Doug. Mark Kays, Express Pros, brought the checks by this morning for me to distribute. I am not at the Amazon.com warehouse, but I do distribute the mail and the checks here in the park to the workampers. I'm really getting to meet a lot of the RV'ers this way... and their pets. Here's Don and Mark chatting this morning. This just about gets me all caught up. Oh, yes.... there is a Wal-Mart here.
