Fiddlin' Around and Havin' a Beer

This past weekend I visited KC Strings, a music store in Mirriam, Kansas that is devoted to stringed instruments. I was there with my brother Bob, he dropped off a violin bow for restringing while we were on our way to the Home and Lawn and Garden Show at Bartle Hall in downtown Kansas City. I only had my little Olympus point and shoot camera with me, but I liked all the violins hanging down in neat rows.

I have been staying in Jefferson City, MO this past week and found this great brew pub called Prison Brews. As you might guess it has a prison decor and all the brews have a prison themed name. The one I am getting ready to enjoy is called "I've Gone A-Rye Pale Ale. If you are in the vicinity of Jeff. City, you should try it. Great atmosphere, great beer and great food - my kind of place!

Signs of Spring?

Took my camera to Shawnee Mission Park this afternoon desperately looking for signs of Spring. It started snowing big huge flakes. No signs of Spring yet, winter still has its icy grip on us. Along with the snow I did see some paddle boats stored for the winter encrusted in ice and snow and plenty of deer. I put the pink roses together from a dozen of them that some nice man bought for my wife.

Pray for Spring,
