White Rock Mountain

Took a road-trip this week to White Rock Mountain in Arkansas. Too early for leaves on trees, but you can see a bit more. That good-looking son-of-a-gun is my brother Alan, long time resident of NW AR.

Truth be Told

For Freedoms is hosting ‘Truth be Told’, a series of three billboards by Fake Name along Highway 54 in MO, between Eldon and Bagnall. If you get a chance to make the drive, you’ll see them going north-bound towards Eldon.  This is an organization doing wonderful work wide and deep across the country, please check them out.

Commerce Tower

These are of the recently renovated Commerce Tower in downtown KC.  Does my heart good to see a stately old building given a renewed lease on life.  Design and construction by Ryan Companies.

Fire!

This was the scene in front of our house a couple nights ago: Five fire trucks and at least a dozen firemen/women.  Thankfully nobody was hurt, and there was no fire.  It’s reassuring to see the KCPD leap into action–a fire has no chance on our block!

St. Joseph Catholic Church, Topeka

St. Joseph Catholic Church is located within the shadow of the capitol building in downtown Topeka.  The masonry and exterior were restored recently and work on the interior is underway, all led by SFS Architecture in Kansas City.  One more good reason to go to Peka.  Get it?  To Peka?!
