Invited to our niece and nephew’s house tonight for jambalaya and soak up some love…over in KANSAS. After living my years in the center of Iowa and having the state line an hour plus away no matter which way you go, I now live in a state where I can have dinner in the neighboring state and be back home in 40 minutes. There is an undercurrent of dislike and competition between the two Kansas City’s. Of course there is. Well, unless the Royals or Chiefs are winners then we are united. I, personally, do not have any of the ingrained dislike of our neighbors over there….but I do have a “thing” about spending money on the Kansas side but mine just comes from the politics and the disgust for the Governor Brownback administration and agenda…send him a pack in’ and I think I would have a different feel about it.
Well, that was a little tangent totally off topic. Christina (have a hard time not calling her the childhood name, Christy) and Aaron lived in Iowa through much of their childhood so we spent the most time with them during those years…more so than the other nieces and nephews. Therefore, I have a lot more child stories about them than I do the others. But, I’ll just leave it at that for this blog…there is a huge sigh of relief coming from the Kansas side of the line.
Until next time…..
