What Happens in Anti-Vegas Stays in Anti-Vegas

Nelson, Branson and Andy Williams

To celebrate my 45th and my son’s 21st, the family loaded up and headed for the mountains.  We stayed here.  We had a fabulous view.  And finding things to do to satisfy ages 14 to 45, not a problem.  We saw a show on Saturday, and another on Sunday, we played miniture golf, road go-carts and bumper boats and we paid homage to the world’s largest ball of string.  This mini-vacation will be remembered as the one where we laughed alot.  Carpe Diem Y’all, Michele

Notes from the Road

greenfields3d.jpgNow which way do we go?  Dorothy – The Wizard of Oz

I understand the phrase “sea of green” now.

I look left,

I look right. 

I see rolling prairie

Waving,

Stretching,

Touching

Clear blue horizon.

White cotton balls dot sky and spackle shadow across land. 

Green and Blue

Swallow me.

Driving through Kansas is everything I imagine it will be.

Yet America is a poem in our eyes; it’s ample geography dazzles the imagination, and it will not wait long for metres. –Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The Poet”, Essays, Second Series, 1844
