My smokin' hot sister and I went to a masquerade ball. I went as a Geisha girl thanks to Bonnie Bing. The ball was a visual treat. My photos really do not do it justice. It was amazing.

I'm helping Robin put together a video about the history of the Bartlett Arboretum to celebrate its 100 years of living. This is Gus van der Hoeven and Robin hugging it out after he spoke about the first time he visited the Arb in 1974. Gus is a very passionate horticulturist and a fantastic interviewee.

Joe Stumpe has a great line in one of his songs" "Only a birdbrain would winter in Wichita." He's referring to the Canadian geese that like to hang out around town. I've shot pictures at this hill in Sedgwick County Park and this is the first time I've seen this.
