Kansas City

My special friend Kelly and I met thirteen years ago when we both went to work as nurse consultants for the Kimberly-Clark Corp. Kelly has lived all her life here in Kansas City and continues to work for Kimberly-Clark.

We are so much alike that sometimes it is spooky, we like the same kinds of clothes and home decor, we both love to cook although after this trip I am sure Kelly is a much better cook than I am--she cooked baby back ribs to die for last night with corn on the cob, wonderful coleslaw and a great new recipe for oven fries. We had to take a 3 mile walk after dinner to try and avoid the pounds.

We have been shopping and eating and visiting. Sunday was Kelly's 50th birthday and her family consisting of her parents, her brother and his wife joined her to celebrate. Also included was a close friend couple whose children are close in age to Kelly's son Ryan. We had hamburgers on the grill and tons of other wonderful fixings.

I am having a little trouble with this weather here in the Midwest--it is beyond HOT! Yesterday Kelly's car thermometer said it was 102 degrees and of course the humidity is dripping. When we went for our 3 mile walk last night, I about had a heat stroke!

Having a great time, today we are off to a neighboring little town to check out a home decor store that was featured in Southern Living Magazine a couple of years ago. Hopefully we will also find a fruit stand with fresh tomatoes and peaches.
