Walk Around Park

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.

Fall 2019

Here are a few pictures of Fall.  Leaves are turning.  Branches are becoming bare.  There a cool, blistering breeze in the air.  The kind that can blow you down and there is not enough clothing that you can put on the protect you from the cold wind.

Old Cowtown

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.

The Bead Tree

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.
