Sunday evening Jessica, Arlyn & Audrey decided to go for an evening swim. Still swimming as the Super Moon begins it’s journey across the night sky. It was a beautiful sight and the kids slept good Sunday night!
Enjoy this soaring tour through the spectacular Sunflower State. We go to the home of the first battle of the Civil War in Aerial America: Kansas.
Hi folks, I meant to send this in a more timely manner, but didn’t get the job done until now. I’ve attached pictures of a few of my favorite art pieces from the Prix de West Show and Art Sale that took place at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum on June 13th. Each year the Museum invites app. 100 artists to participate in this nationally acclaimed show. This year over 300 paintings/sculptures were entered in the sale. Also, each year the Museum chooses a piece for the Prix de West Purchase Award which becomes a part of the permanent collection. This year’s winner is the woman wrapped in the blanket. The art remains on exhibit for approximately 2 months before it is removed and shipped to the buyers. In October we will have a combined sale featuring the TCAA (Traditional Cowboy Arts Association) and CAA (Cowboy Artists of America); two elite organizations with fewer than 30 members each. The CAA again does paintings/sculptures and the TCAA members do saddle making, silversmithing, braiding. If you need a $50,000 saddle, this is the place to buy it. Again, the pieces remain in place for a couple months after the sale. The Museum has 85,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space so I encourage “ya’ll” to come on down and take a look.

Kansas farmer Derek Klingenberg, a YouTube star, is at it again. This time he took his trombone into the pasture – and played until the cows came home.
Creepy crawlers on my Sunflowers. I’m told they are caterpillars. There are hundreds, if not thousands. Hope they are good butterflies.
