Klingon Warrior Kur’Den

Denzil Miracle, who dressed up as Kur’Den, went to heaven on July 16, 2019, after succumbing to brain cancer.

He was the inspiration behind my Klingon Adventure post. He was passionate about dressing up as a Klingon and about his family.

He knew that I traveled 1100 miles in May to see him and to have one last conversation, while he still had most of himself. At that time he called me his sister.

His family brought his Klingon outfit to the Celebration of Life service, parked his Klingon vessel, the Dark Lady (his Corvette), in front of the funeral, and painted dolls green, so the Orion’s Slave Girls would be in attendance.

One guest brought the warrior’s drink, prune juice, instead of flowers.

I do not believe my life will be as colorful.

K’s Passions

Today is the first full day of Spring.  It is also Down Syndrome awareness day.  Down Syndrome is a genetic disorder.  Yes, they were born that way.  My nephew Kegan has down syndrome and he has grown into a man that loves a lot and has many passions.

Today, drawing shows a few of Kegan’s passions.

Precious Moments Chapel

If you are ever near Carthage, MO, a stop at the Precious Moments Chapel is worth the visit.

Samuel J. Butcher the creator of the Precious Moment figurines journeyed through the United State in search for a location to place the chapel.  Once he found Carthage, MO, he knew, with the rolling hills, water stream, and caves, it would be a perfect location for the chapel.
