How do you know you are in Kansas?

When there is Dust in the Wind!

And oh my, Toto, there was a lot of wind this day. But it didn’t stop us from enjoying a few moments of fun in front of the Kansas Originals Market and Gallery. What a neat, unique gift shop. So many cool things to look at inside and out.

Capt’n Jim can’t seem to help himself; he loves to pose with statues and such. This, of course, being the first of many such opportunities. And all of this BEFORE the wine tasting! Yes, they offer wine tasting. This was my first experience with wine tasting and obviously with Covid-19 protocols in place it was different than what is the norm. Still, all in all, a lot of fun. Glad we did it too, as Jim opted for their more expensive wine to start with. He was going to just buy it without trying it and I insisted. Glad we did as we didn’t really like it. Instead we bought two other reds: Czech Style Red Wine (a sweet) and Heartland Red Velvet (a dry.) Both are produced by Smoky Hill Vineyards and Winery. And, on a final note, a big thank you to the young man who waited on us. Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name. He was new at doing this and did a great job. He and I briefly talked cameras as he liked my baby!
