Clouds and sunset near Hoyt, Kansas. Photo credit goes to an old high school pal who just left the Navy and moved (with wife and several kids) from California back home to Kansas, to give his kids the childhood he had. James has traveled all over the world, by himself and with his family, doing the Navy thing proud, making me proud to know him, to see through the computer and talks with his mom just how much he has improved his life. All the places he has lived, seen, experienced — he told all of Facebook the other day, that there is no place better than Kansas to live. This is home. Probably a lot of us feel like there is one place on Earth that has the memories, the beauty, the magic and love to be considered home base. I’m with James — born and raised, Kansas proud.
