Garage sale

Yesterday we helped our daughter with her garage sale. I was surprised at the number of people that attended those things. Some stop and some just drive by and stop and then drive on.
Today we will just kick back and watch the NASCAR race. It has been a busy week and next week will be more busy. Monday I start radiation, Tuesday our daughter will be induced and have our 4th grandchild, (its a girl). Friday I see my cnacer doctor again and find out what type of chemo I'll have.
As I keep saying, this retirement is just not working out. We don't have time to get everything in.

Arrow Rock Missouri

This Historic site on the Boone's Lick Trail was very interesting. In central Missouri, this really was the start of the Santa Fe Trail. It was made famous during the early 1800's by Daniel Boone 2 son's who mined salt here very close to the Missouri River. It was also a stop on the Lewis & Clark trip up the Missouri.

A few days ago most of the stars of the movie, 'Tom Sawyer' returned here for a reunion. This movie was filmed here. Jody Foster was one of the stars.

Kansas City

After arriving in Kansas City, I had a lump removed from my shoulder which turned out to be cancer. After my doctor appointment on July 13th I will know what my treatment plan will be.

Have been getting a large amount of rain here in MO & KS. 20 inches in the last couple of days.
