Hubsy's 45th HS Reunion...People Live This Long....?

 ...Manhattan, KS HS 1966....but first we had to get there--which is at least half the fun! On a blazing hot morning, a retired pile of rusting old farm equipment displayed near our motel; I-80 is just beyond the tree line; you can't feel the sweaty heat nor hear the roar of the trucks on the road. Little kids loved this exhibit, no surprise....
 (actually, in answer to my rhetorical question, two of Hubsy's classmates passed away this very month! Sad) Who the heck knew that Council Bluffs, IA had such a pretty downtown central square? This statue is one of several at the war memorial--I include it since I can vaguely remember such elderly women as is represented here....perhaps poor, but with dignity and genuine, simple grace, clad in plain worn cloth coat...
 ...never pass up a glorious daylily--that's my policy....

 ...an impressive water feature in the park, sounding refreshing and cool in the muggy hot morning...
....just some nice fresh colors on an old building--looks like a flourishing wine shop in downtown Council Bluffs, shot while Hubsy was filling up the gas tank.   Below, looking back east from Omaha....

Haha--another kind of mask

One of our home grown potatoes seemed to smile at me as it was readied for cook pot.
