Here are a few pictures of my first outing since…. I can’t go many places, but I can go to the park if I stay off of the playground equipment. My first outing was a walk around L.E. Ray Park.
I liked how the sun was reflecting off of the grass.
The geese will leave you along, as long as you don’t go near their babies.
It was to pretty today not to take pictures. Blue sky and wind blowing across the lake. This maybe the last warm beautiful day this year.
No, the Mississippi River is not smaller than it appears in the pictures. There are reasons it is called the mighty Mississippi. Just a few months ago, the water levels were above flood stage and walking on the leave was prohibited.
Sometimes, the sky is so pretty you have to take a picture, or six pictures.
Old Cowtown is located in Wichita, Kansas. They have relocated some of the old buildings that were built around Wichita to this museum. It is located next to the Arkansas River on Museum Boulevard. Across the street is the Botanical Gardens, which is worth a visit.
Settlers used to live in houses that were small, but it suited their needs.
They packed their wagons and move to Kansas. I think they were trying to get out of the over grown city in the East and the mosquitoes in the South.
Every town had a church. But, in the South every town seemed to have a Baptist Church, a Catholic Church, and a Methodist Church. Which were usually across the street from each other.
I made a friend while visiting Old Cowtown.
At noon, there was a fight on the street of the town. A couple was robbed. The wife took the husband gun and shot the robber. The wife went home, the robber was okay, and the husband went to the saloon.
Outside to town, there was a farm. They even had a lazy cow. She was eating laying down.
This tree at the Hasting Museum, which they hid down in the “basement” had the most interesting ornaments of any of the other trees. The ornaments were either decorated or made from beads.
I do not need another craft, especially one that requires handling tiny beads and thin wires. The Midwest Beaders should be proud of their beautiful work.
Well that is a lot of snow for November, in Nebraska. I will not be going and swinging on the swing set today. Why? Because it will mess up the beautiful snow.
