On the fifth day, Mom, Dad, Natalie, and I continued on our way to CO.
Kansas was, well, boring....and took hours. Most of the day was in Kansas. The most exciting thing was when we stopped at a rest hour and saw a man proposing to his sweetheart. They
then came over and asked us to take a picture of them.
So, here we have Kansas. Lots of fields, lots of grain storage elevators. But it was more hilly than I expected. We pretty much stuck to Rt. 40, instead of Rt. 70.
We finally arrived in CO. We went directly to our friend's house, Jim and Kay Koch. Jim Koch was the principal of the high school I attended in Denver. I used to babysit his kids. He and his wife live in a beautiful house. They have done a fantastic job landscaping the back yard. Here is Mom. We got a kick out of their dog drinking from the little waterfall. Kay had set a beautiful table in the backyard and served a delicious meal. Their backyard could easily be featured in Better Homes and Gardens or Good Housekeeping.
After a good evening of fellowship, we went to our hotel. The Kochs would have had us stay with them but their basement guest books were damaged by water (a flood?).
I don't know why, but my posts publish a lot different than they look in the preview. I'm not used to the computer I'm working on, so I don't know if it's me, Blogger, or the computer!
