Rural Pictures I Like, But Really Don't Have Anything Interesting To Write About
Driving back from Kansas, we whizzed by lots of things I would have loved to have had pictures of - ponds and cows, old towns with odd little gas stations, and these amazing power plants. I couldn't believe that coal was still being used to generate electricity, but you can see the conveyor belts used to take it up into the plants. What I didn't get a picture of was a small lake overhung with a pulley system that was used to pull water skiers around, boatless. I'll be back driving up 169 in the next 6 weeks or so, and get a picture to post then. But I did manage to get a picture of the Kansas state highway sign featuring the state flower, the Sunflower, surrounding the Highway number. (279)
OK, this is almost too boring to post! Maybe I can add my Birthday Want List to bring some spice to it. I want a better camera and a real laptop. Currently I use an old net book with no sound. I want a nice camera that takes pictures really fast, so I have lots to pick from. (And don't have to use ones that make me look my age.) The Chanel Summer nail colors, with lipsticks to match. A white Gypsy Skirt. Dinner in Dallas.
