Saturday's Journey


We decided to go for a drive. It was over 360 mile drive and we saw a lot of countryside. We went out to Hamilton, Missouri and turned down highway 13 through Lexington, Warrensburg, turning at Clinton, Missouri going to Warsaw, Missouri . The restaurant on the river was still there that we had ate at a long time ago. We went downtown looking at the shops and their courthouse square. Of course, my camera was at home. We were going to visit a friend that lives outside of Warsaw, but he wasn't able to meet us in town and it didn't appear that his wife wanted company. We didn't push it, We just said that we would try it another time. We crossed Truman lake a couple of different places. There was some beautiful scenery there. We came home through Sedalia, Missouri. This was the last weekend of the state fair. We came up Highway 65 to Chillicothe, Mo Highway 36 to Cameron, Missouri and home. It was a very enjoyable trip, traffic wasn't real bad as the major highways.
We had several different kinds of airplanes at the airport today. Some was going to the air show in Kansas City. We always have a lot of things happening here because they also have schools for flying over in war zones. Some of our guys have been home approximately a week for Afghanistan. We get foreign planes in to go to their school.
We have had rain early in the week, but the weekend has turned off pretty nice for our Trails West Festival. They have had a lot of different entertainers here. It will end tomorrow evening. Their craft vendors are chosen, and juried in if they want to come back the following year. You have to submit pictures of what you do to see if you can get in. Most are out of town crafters. They want so much just to be there and then they want a percentage of your sales. I don't think I would like to do it. To purchase food you had to purchase tickets, and if you don't use them all that is tough luck there is no refund. They thought they weren't being paid properly. The arts group have got a little greedy. The first year it was free admission, but not any more. Taylor Swift performed here before her career really took off.
Must close. Have a good weekend.
