With the first frost having already come knocking and winter bears down (despite being 72 degrees today), the remnants of a Kansas sunflower stubbornly continues it survival vigilance against the inevitable…
I can only think of a handful of things that can top a Kansas sunrise (or sunset).
What a grand weekend! And boy howdy did I take a bunch of pictures!
The milestone 35th reunion happened at Hays High School. Despite a losing effort for the current Indians on the football field (losing to Garden City), those of us alumni able to attend the homecoming and reunion had a fabulous time…not just one evening, but two!
Our class of 190-something produced about 45 of us over the weekend. We all showed up to enjoy ourselves, the time spent with good friends, and to poke fun at the aging habits a handful of us seem to be developing. Better yet, little grief was taken on the thinning noggin, chubby cheeks, and the mid-section bounce that seems to have graced my curb appeal. I guess it is what it is, huh?
Somewhere in the neighborhood of 19,000 pictures are stored on my computer (and backed up on two different portable hard drives) that have a 2010 date. So what the heck, I took took a stab at a Top 50 list. Let me know what you think.
Those that frequent this blog know of my unquestionable loyalty to Kansas State University, both academically and athletically (let’s not mention the thousands of dollars they got from me here). Because of that, a reluctance to give “press” to the rival college(s) is stubbornly applied, i.e. just about anything to do with the University of Kansas or the rest of the Big 3+7 (another post yet to come). But with this post, I make a proud exception!
A rediscovered photo in my 2009-365 collection captures the Toulon grain elevator in Kansas over Thanksgiving weekend last year. A common sight in Kansas are grain elevators, this Toulon elevator is about two miles from Dad’s house. The layered colors in the stockpile were a definite bonus. An ever so faint half moon can be seen in the top left quad of the photo – the photos gods were gracious to me this day.
It was kind of like finding $20 in a pair of pants…way cool.
I grabbed an idle CF card for my Canon for a few quick pictures the other night. When I started to download them later that evening I found a handful of other pictures patiently waiting for me to share - pictures taken over the Father’s Day weekend.
Check out Flickr for new pictures of OFGNi Madison. Tripod the Calf (RIP) wanting feed gets the blog picture (along with FD in the unusual pose - that birds and bees talk may be long over due)
