After exploring the prairie behind a local elementary school with a few friends, my daughter suggested we go on a hike there together. This shot was from the first of many abandoned structures we encountered along the way.

After a Royals game for Father’s Day, we decided to take in a T-Bones game over the Fourth of July weekend.  

A few weeks ago, on a blisteringly hot day, my daughter saw a tiny, Himalayan kitten scurrying along a street where new homes were being built. Her fur was matted, and she was dehydrated.  But after a bath and some fluids, she bounced to life and has brought such life to our household.

As the Twinners start their senior year of college, we’ve made several trips to Kansas State in Manhattan recently.  In addition to visiting Varsity Donuts in Aggieville, they always have to stop in at The Dusty Bookshelf to say hello to the cat.

With a final score of 13-2, the Boston Red Sox really outplayed the Kansas City Royals on Father’s Day at The “K.”  This is one of two runs scored by Pedroia. On Today’s Date in the Past: Relaxed Mouser Gnome

This photo isn’t the best, but I was excited that I captured this hit that resulted in a broken bat, even if it is a bit blurry.

Royals pitcher Chris Young throws with all of his might at the Father’s Day game against the Boston Red Sox.  Sadly, the boys in blue lost 13-2. Compare my shot with basic equipment from the stands to the professionals with gigantic lenses and positions on the field!
