Well Actually we are.
My sister in law Donna and I took a road trip to the Gypsum Hills of Barber County Kansas with our good friend Tom.
Mr Fixit told me that I wouldn't believe I was in Kansas anymore and boy was he right
we could have been in parts of Wyoming or Colorado or where ever because this sure didn't look like the Kansas I had seen so far!
It was beautiful!
Not that Kansas isn't beautiful...it is...but when you lived for over 30 years in the mountains of British Coloumbia you tend to judge beautiful scenery by mountains or rolling hills and forest.
I was drawn in by this beautiful unexpected scenery.

This is the picture most of us imagine Kansas to look like.

On our way home Tom asked if we'd like to see Greensburg.
Most of us remember Greensburg Kansas when it was hit by an F5 tornado in 2007 and over 95% of the city was destroyed.

This is how Greensburg looked yesterday
It was a very busy town with LOTS of construction happening everywhere.
This John Deere dealership is owned by a cousin and her husband
it was totally destroyed by the tornado.
Life goes on
And we head home.
