The Bunnies Came Through!

Last night we got home late and found a whole herd of rabbits on the front lawn – I figured it was like catching Santa Claus in the act and for sure this morning the yard would be full of Easter eggs!

No eggs found, but there are piles of chocolate-covered raisins everywhere!

They do seem a bit stale and chewy, and to be honest, they really taste like shi…

Sorry, gotta go!!

That Time Of Year Again

Apollo 1 (January 27th)

Challenger (January 28th)

Columbia (February 1st)

I’ll never forget where I was and what I was doing when I heard of any of them.

Mission Secondary Objective #5 Achieved!

There are also air museums in Kansas City!

The TWA Museum was nice, with some amazing, knowledgeable, and very friendly docents!

The Airline History Museum and the TWA Museum are both at the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport.

Mission Primary Objective #2 Achieved!

This Sunday was more fun and had a more satisfying result than last Sunday!

Arrowhead Stadium is a holy place to my people…

We had really great seats and were playing our hated arch rivals, the Oakland Raiders.

WE STOMPED THEM, 35-3! And it really wasn’t as close as that score might indicate.

The Chiefs now have won the AFC, have a bye week next week, and now are just two wins away from the Super Bowl for the first time since 1969.

Meanwhile, we’re packing for a busy day of travel tomorrow. Back to reality – or at least “reality-adjacent” for a transition day.

Mission Secondary Objective #4 Achieved!

Kansas City has the finest BBQ in the world. We love us some BBQ. We’ve been on a mission to work our way through some places that show up consistently on “best of” lists.

The original site, still a gas station as well.

Not only was the food good, but the live music was a ton of fun! John Paul’s Flying Circus had blues & jazz & rock and roll and they could play, especially Bill Dye on guitar.

Tonight was Q39, a newer, upscale place that was packed – glad we had reservations!

Those are the highlights so far (others had us wondering how they ended up on a “best of” list), with one more day to go. Something else going on tomorrow though…

Mission Secondary Objective #3 Achieved!

We flew to Kansas City on Christmas Day. That whole thing about Christmas Day being a GREAT day to travel because the airports & planes are supposedly half empty on that day? Total BS, it was a cattle car.

In KC we have six days to “kill” before the football game on Sunday. Fortunately, the KC area has plenty to see.

The Negro League Baseball Museum is just wonderful. (More pictures, full story when we get home & I’m not writing this on my phone, etc…)

The same building also has the American Jazz Museum, also worth a visit!
