A day in Kansas City..........



Last Wednesday, we traveled to Kansas City, MO with our group from Freeman Advantage, which is sponsored by our hospital. We left Joplin at 7:30 a.m., after having muffins, coffee and juice in the hospital lobby. We arrived in KC in time for lunch at Harvery House at Union Station. Harvery House is known for their hamburgers/cheeseburgers/onion rings/french fries, and we had all of them. Very delish! We then walked The Link which connects The Westin, the Hyatt Regency, the Shops of Crown Center, Crown Center Offices and the Science City at Union Station. It is a wonderful way to cross the busy streets of KC. We had a short time to window shop before going up to the American Heartland Theatre to see the play, Always Patsy Cline. It was a very enjoyable play. After the play there was more shopping, then we boarded the bus for our return trip to Joplin. A very enjoyable day, without driving, fighting the traffic, and trying to find your way around in KC. The next day trip is planned for December.

Sounds like you had a really great day out. Is Kansas City far from you? My sister was a huge Patsy Cline fan and used to do kareoke with all her numbers. We have a tape of her singing with her youngest daughter and you can tell how much she loves Patsy's music.

Hi Barbara:
Sounds like a fun day out. I love bus trips with our friends. When we plan them, we always try to get some of them to go.
Have a good day.

Happy to read that you and your husband had such a fun time! You must be looking forward to your trip in December. Oh Barbara you are making me want a cheeseburger and onion rings! I am not a fan of country music, but I do love Patsy Cline. There is something about her voice that just captures you. Must have been a great play!

As soon as the chilly winds Abercrombie Polos initially start to blow every year as autumn sets in; people go to their closets Abercrombie Polos and pull out their sweaters dog coats and ed hardy Hats jackets to ensure that they are comfortable as the temperature drops. Your Ed Hardy Sale dog deserves this equal treatment so when you pull out yours, do Ed Hardy Sale remember to pull out your dog's warm dog clothes as well.If the night is chilly, but Ed Hardy Swimwear not quite freezing, even something as Ed Hardy Swimwear simple as a warm dog sweater will help you to keep your dog warm.
