Since my last posting when it had snowed, the temps have warmed in days, but 20-30’s at night. Our days have been busy doing normal stuff that normally keeps my friends busy. For me, its an enlightening opportunity to see and enjoy their pleasures. Such as their grand kids. Must say, they are awesome folks to get to know. Even Emma, the 5 year old, is nothing short of pure joy to be around. So its been a busy fun to be here.

We headed on to Parsons for the KCBS (Kansas City Barbecue Society) Barbecue Competition. Tim & Janie’s son Steve was one of the 25 teams who entered. We, the bystanders, got to sample the categories (chicken, ribs, pork and brisket). Had live music and other concessionaires in the park. Got to try out a funnel cake – they teased me big time – as I’ve never had a funnel cake. So lots of laughter amongst these Kansas folks over my not knowing about funnel cakes. And another one – fried pickles! Good grief, who would think to fry a dill pickle??? It was a fun day…

After all that… we headed back to Haven with a side trip to Fredonia. I had gotten directions to my next hang-out, but didn’t quite know where I would be going – so we went looking. Found it. Then had an uneventful trip back to Haven. I’m laying low today… getting things done.. got my rig open – which really helps to warm it up, but it has not reached the 70’s like it was forecasted. Nonetheless, its a beautiful day near Haven, Kansas.
