Home Again Home Again

Wow. So after ten years of averaging less than a trip per year back to Kansas, there’s a very good chance I will be returning 3 times this year. May, July, and September. Why? you ask. I’m asking myself the same question, but there was the coincidental convergence of a friend’s graduation from law school, my ten year high school reunion (why they planned this for July, of all times, I will never understand), and finding a girlfriend I’m excited about introducing to my parents and best friends in the midwest. Anyway, that’s all for now – I’ll post trip updates here as they happen.

Jiggety jig.

Tim & Wendy

Saturday Becky and I ventured to Manhattan, Kansas for the wedding of Tim Bunch and Wendy Lynn. Tim is the son of Patty and Tom Bunch who live in Ottawa, Kansas. Patty is Becky’s best and longest friend from grade school. It was a beautiful Kansas spring day, including wind that buffeted cars during the hour and a half trip along Highway 70. I took a bunch of photos with the Canon A-70, and the ones that turned out are viewable here.

Happy Birthday Floye

Jeffrey reports that Floye Ardrey will be celebrating her 93rd birthday this Sunday (April 18) at her son Bob’s house in Perkins, Oklahoma. I think her birthday is actually April 19. Those of us who can’t attend in person will certainly be thinking about Floye and what she means to us. I’ve been guilty of not telling her enough how much I love and respect her, and of not letting her know how often I really do think about her. She’s an inspiration to anyone who would strive to lead a “good life” in the Aristotelian sense, and yet she would be the first to protest that she possessed exemplary qualities. If everybody had even half her wisdom and character, the world would be a heck of a lot better place.
