mountain time...Day three.. in Boulder, CO. 1900 plus miles completed. What do you think of when you say" Kansas"? Probably  Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. What is here, is a beautiful state with rolling hills,small towns ,acres of fields,no traffic and a police car every few miles. The speed limit is 75 , so if you work on the same theory as I do, that means at least 80 and maybe a tad more(  if Waze don't see a cop car). In Topeka, where we spent the night, we saw the school board building  where Wade VS the Board of Education occurred. I don't know the whole background about why it took place here, but I plan to look it up. The country side has fields that go further than you can see. The land is fertile and you can see how we can feed ourselves and others with the possible abundance that we have. My Grandson who is helping me drive, works with third world countries on producing seeds  for planting that has more nutritional value and he is mightily impressed with what he sees. I suspect that we take this wealth of land,and the security that we have for granted and perhaps we shouldn't. We saw fields of giant windmills. Hugh. We think that they were maybe Three or four stories tall. They overwhelmed the landscape. They have  three paddles and the way that they are designed made them look like a ballet in motion. It is amazing how a mechanical object can be so graceful. Our  plan is for me to drive the morning shift, while my Grandson does the afternoon and the manipulating around the rush hour and bigger cities, like Boulder, where we are tonight. Motel rooms have jumped in price, which I figured would happen. But we have a garden room on the first floor, and a view of the foot hills of the Rockies and Noodle has a yard. It isn't screened so I can't let him free, but he seems to like our arrangement. We were met by another Grandson , who lives here in Boulder and his long time girl friend. It is so good to see them. Right now they are picking up food and wine for us to share in our motel room. We laugh a lot when we get together, so I hope there isn't anyone in the next room to complain. We can get pretty rowdy .You betcha.
