Home Town Hop!
|Old Timey Windmill|
|New Timey Windmill|
I have to say, whenever I do get back to that area, it freaks me out to see all those turbines! It is not how I left it, but so dang proud of their contributions to the environment!
There is not much in sight seeing and nightlife. Our entertainment was school sports. Our school used to be good at girl's basketball. I don't know if it still is because I have been gone over 20 years. On a side note: my graduating class was 18 people with 5 being girls. On a side, side note: I went to school with the momma to Willy Cauley-Stein, who plays on the University of Kentucky basketball team. This boy will be pro one day!
|Girls Baskeball ROCKED!|
|My old alma mater.|
It's being torn down for a new one. Sad.
It was also built during the Works Progress Act.
Sorry my town doesn't have much to offer in the ways of visiting. But I must say, I am so glad I was raised there. I was able to go out and play as long as I can hear my mom's whistle. I had to be home when the church bells rung at 6 p.m. We had dinner together every night as a family. My family supported me in my endeavors to be a basketball player in middle school and a cheerleader in high school. My extended family would come to our house for dinner and game nights. My dad taught me to drive a stick shift out in the country.
So thanks for tiptoeing through my memories of my hometown. Next time we will visit the town 25 miles west...the rootin' tootin' rough and tumble town of Dodge City. Yee haw!!
