Those words resonated with me as I lived and worked in Kansas. Kansas surprised me. For 2 years, I sampled anything the state had to offer. At a Topeka pub, I […]

I just finished up a graveyard shift and produced the morning show. Our morning producer called in sick yesterday and I suppose I’m next in line. It was a smooth newscast and I’m happy my boss told me about the shift change, before I started drinking coffee on Sunday. Mark, Daisy and the rest of […]

Kansas Food

This is from our first night in our brand new apartment. We were pooped from unloading both Corollas. We had to carry everything up two flights of stairs. That was my workout for the day. Pizza and beer – the perfect meal after a day of moving. My bears felt entitled to some booze as […]

I adored roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. I don’t miss my graveyard shifts. I do miss watching the […]

I spotted a duck family swimming along the swollen Arkansas River in Wichita, Kansas. I enjoyed watching the sunset and sipping cocktails by the American River in Sacramento. This is my […]
