Art in Kansas City

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 […]

Back in Kansas…

Here’s Daisy in the little Bark Park. Since the World Cup was going on at the time, she wanted to play “Pele” with the fuzzy soccer ball. Despite the fact we’re at a public park, she thinks of the ball as her personal toy.

Surviving the Kansas Chills…

When I complain about the cold weather (and people, 20 degrees is cold), some folks shake their heads at my daffy Cali-self.
