Wow of the Week: scenery.

When you tell people that you live "up near Kansas City", they often get a particular mental image. This is probably not it:

Lucky me, "near" is about sixty miles away. I can take a twenty-minute walk and find neighbors like this.

Heh heh. I said "neigh".

What's in your neck of the woods?


  1. A mixture of city and pigs. Now that's a visual, huh?

  2. I live back in the woods. I look out and see trees and turkeys and turtles and stuff. At the end of the drive, I'm in semi-rural suburbia, and another five minutes takes me into town, if "town" is the word I want. Another 30 minutes takes me to a big city, so I think I have the best of all possible locations. :)

  3. Hi Audrey -- Just west of town and from our bedroom window, we see the first line of hills in the Front Range of Colorado. In my yard I have a dwarf apple, a flowering pear, an aspen tree, three English lavender plants, and an aging grape vine. And a tall ham radio antenna. Sigh.
