Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

OUT OF THE HOUSE

It has rained off and on all week nothing but cloud’s . Saturday the sun finally showed it self and we had to get out of the house.

001 

We started off by going to Parkville to see what they had in there little city market. There wasn’t much going on because it’s still early in the growing season. We did fine some nice looking tomatoes for a B.L.T. After that we made a stop at the nursing home to help mom with eating her lunch and a little visit.

Then we headed for downtown Kansas City,MO they were having a art show in a area called the Power and Light District,it’s an area that has a lot of restaurant's and bars.

There was a band playing the blues and a lot of people walking around looking at the art in the tents. There was some real nice stuff with high price tags. This was not your ordinary craft show that we are use to,some of it was six and seven thousand dollars. These people travel around the country to art shows and I was wondering how many of these high dollar pieces can they be selling.

The weather was perfect with a little breeze blowing. Annie and I found some shade and I found something cold to drink, at $5 a piece I was wondering what  I was thinking after buying it,  but it was nice just listening to the band and people watching and of course Annie was a hit she thinks everybody came to see her.

Kansas City is the home town of Sprint and this is the Sprint Center where they have a lot of concerts and events.

We have never had Sushi and not sure we want to but I guess if you get a fish or person drunk enough they will do or eat anything.

As far as I know the world did not come to a end so I guess I will be off to work at the church.

Have a good week and take care of each other….

ONE DAY CLOSER TO OUR DREAM

Sometimes, you just have to get out of the house. I can't wait to get some fresh tomatoes at a farmers market. :)

I have a farmer's market growing in our back yard..Unlike most of them, you get a beer or wine with your produce when you stop here...:-)

Looks like a nice day out after all the bad weather.

Drunken Fish, that is such a hoot!! I would have to go in an order something, just to see the place. Stay safe.

Great name for a Sushi place although I still think I'd have to give it a pass. Looks like an interesting part of town to spend a morning or afternoon.

Sushi is very good. If you want to try it, and are uncomfortable with the idea of raw fish, there are many sushi rolls that use cooked fish or shrimp or crab. I have grown to enjoy many with raw fish and make it at home myself. It takes getting used to. I can't bring myself to eat any of the invertebrates, squid, or eel, I'm leary of French Escargo too!

We have always wondered if anyone bought art at those shows. Never saw people walking around with a painting. I guess they must otherwise they wouldn't be doing it.

The Sprint buildings looks neat.
