Hi readers. It’s been a longish while. So much has changed in my life I’m not even certain I’m the same man who wrote all those other entries …… Chickens? We don’t got no cheekens.
I’m living these days in Leavenworth, Kansas. The house I live in is just to the left of that lake you see in the photo. Been here just over a year living on the Leavenworth VA campus. I’m in an apartment, one of four, in an old 1890s vintage house built for the staff serving the original VA hospital here.
The lake, interestingly, was dug by old veterans of the late 1800s for the clay used to make bricks for the hospital when it was going up.
The bricks the house is built of are from the same clay pit now named Lake Jeanette.
I suppose I’m likely to tell you a lot more about Leavenworth, Kansas and this aging VA campus over time. But for now I just want to break the ice and say, maybe I’m back for a while.
Thanks for coming along.
