Grand Canyon of Kansas
But isn’t Kansas fairly flat?
Oh, please read on…
Our pumpkin kitty has a brother who is a tuxedo cat. Apparently his black and white markings made it look like he was truly dressed up in a tuxedo, so his foster family named him Grand. Once that was all settled, they tried to come up with a name for the kitten we eventually adopted.
The foster mom told the story like this, “So the black and white kitten is Grand, what should we name the pumpkin kitten? What is a good name that goes with Grand?”
Her kids replied in unison, “Canyon!”
We loved the name and our pumpkin kitty remains a spirited half of the Grand Canyon today.
- Travel Spirit (who doesn’t look anywhere CLOSE to 50-something) has these beautiful photos to share,
- the Toemail community took their foot-focused selves on a big hike,
- Victoria Judy captured the magnificent scenery from her husband’s perspective, and
- the woman behind A Number of Things reminds us not to confuse this Grand Canyon with THE Grand Canyon
this is my contribution…
