Along with the ambiance of the 1940's they serve great food. I actually saw Kirstie Alley there once when her children were very small. The customers showed such class. No one stared, bothered her or asked for an autograph. As soon as she left the building however, there were some necks craning with looks out of the front window.
This house is in Wichita, KS. Mr. Wright liked to hide the front door. As you can see from the side photo, it is a big house with lots of room. However, the bedrooms are tiny. He felt they should only be used for sleeping so there was barely room for a bed.
I happened to get a picture of the tower on the top of the Ad building at Sterling College, Sterling, KS, USA back in 1947. It is at the top of my friend, Jo's left hand. Later a wind storm destroyed the tower. The picture showing the building in 2009 was taken as we drove by on a day trip.
My mother-in-law used to tease me about taking pictures of buildings. I still do it and she would still be amused! We were good friends!
This is my second cousin. We grew up together. Neither one of us had a sister. She had one brother.
We were just one year apart in age but she was born on this date in 1930 and started school as a "mid-termer."
This put her two years ahead of me in school so she was there to introduce me to Liberty Junior High and Hutchinson High School. I was afraid of getting lost - all those classes in different rooms, you know.
I miss her a lot.
WARREN G. HARDING Take W. 4th from Hutchinson. Then one mile west of Whiteside, just west of the cemetery, find a 10-foot-tall granite memorial to President Warren Harding, who, during a brief stop in 1923, helped harvest wheat on this site. Another marker stands in Hutchinson’s Sylvan Park (B and Walnut), where Harding delivered a speech during that visit. (quoted from internet)
I believe this was his last trip. He traveled to Denver, Alaska, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco where he died, possibly from heart failure. One account states his early death probably saved him from impeachment. There were many scandals, some unknown to him.
We saw these at the store along with some other new dip sticks that looked like short drinking straws made of chip material. I picked these to try and they are now my new favorite snack.

It would be nice if we could say the same for our legislators.
This is my mom. She was born in 1904 on February 7th in Halstead, KS. After high school, she went to nurse's training at Dr. Hertzler's hospital in her home town.
She was a terrific nurse who could give painless shots. She always wore a fancy handkerchief in her uniform pocket and proudly wore her nurse cap with the black strip, signifying a registered nurse. In these photos she was nineteen as a Registered Nurse graduate and forty-nine in the second for their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary in 1953.
It's been 50 years last October since she died at only sixty years old. I miss her.
