It’s Been A While

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but it’s like a friend you haven’t seen in a long time and you just pick up right where you left off.  Today our adventure was one of my favorite places, Lincoln County, KS.  I love the landscape and especially the limestone, be it fence post, homes or bridges. ❤ Limestone

Lincoln County has a program that recognizes all the old schools.  Here’s a couple we saw today.

Liberty School 1893-1947

Spring Valley School 1893-1953

 

I love goats

 

What a beautiful home and barn.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to fix this up?

 

Stone Arched Bridge

 

Huge old oak tree.  That’s Wylie sitting at the base of the tree.

 

Unique silo

 

Something I have NEVER seen……..A plane at the gas station!!

It’s good to be back with a post.  Hopefully I can get use to using a laptop instead of a desktop (as I no longer have a desktop because it quit!).  It’s been quite a learning experience for me.  I can get into all sorts of trouble on a laptop.  Touch the little touchpad the wrong way and things disappear!!  Touch the screen and it either grows big or small or disappears.  What do you use when you post?  And please don’t tell me you post on your phone!!!!!

 

6 Years Old

It just doesn’t seem possible that Wylie is 6 years old!!  I always bake him a “cake” and of course there are presents.  This year I decided to make “cupcakes”.  Following a basic meatloaf recipe, his cupcake was made of elk, carrots, and spinach.   A cupcake wouldn’t be complete without frosting.  Wylie’s frosting is plain mashed potatoes (no salt or butter).  Happy Birthday, Wylie❤️

Patiently waiting

St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi

Christ Cathedral at Salina was honoring St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, with a celebration of the Blessing of the Animals.  I wouldn’t miss this opportunity to present Wylie before the altar to receive blessings and for me too, so that I will be guided for his care.

Wylie’s Charity Photo Shoot

Every year Wylie does a photo shoot for the Love, Chloe Foundation through our local photographer, Jane with Forever Memories.  It is an amazing foundation that provides support for families in Central Kansas who have a child with cancer.  Here is a link to their website:

I liked the photo so much and asked to see it in sepia.  Really like the way it look, and decided to do it on canvas.  This photo was also featured on the Facebook page of Double D Ranchwear, who sells the Trapper by Lane cowboy boot.

Good boy ❤️  🐾

Weekend Trip

Herrington City Lake on a cold snowy day.  I saw a couple of eagles, but couldn’t get a good picture of them.

Another Lark Inn property in Cottonwood Falls. This is Fox Hollow, as with all their properties, a wonderful place to stay!!  Comfortable 2 bedroom cottage, within walking distance to downtown Cottonwood.  We ate at Ad Astra Food and Drink, and also at the Grand Central Hotel, so good!!

A trip to this area wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.
