GOP Primary 2018

As I usually do, I share my election picks after my ballot is in the collection box.

Kansas Governor: Without question, I chose incumbent governor Jeff Colyer. There was no way in hell I was going to let current Secretary of State Kris Kobach anywhere near Cedar Crest if I had anything to say about it.

A Saturday on the Union Pacific

I went into Perry to deliver gifts for my nieces and to get to know my
baby sister
a little bit. After that, I decided to head a couple of blocks over to the Union Pacific mainline to catch what was going on.

Meeting my second family

For those that don’t know, I was adopted at birth. Recently, I decided to look into my biological family.
