ROYALS

Whew! The game Friday night between our Kansas City Royals and the Toronto Blue Jays was a cracker jack. We were at home sweating it out. I get so nervous when the Royals are behind, I have to switch channels. Then every two seconds, I am back watching the game.

We went to bed when the game was delayed because of rain, but then, eyes wide open, I had to listen to it on the radio. One good thing. It is harder to bite your nails in the dark. By the time it was over, (I guess everyone knows the Royals won) I was so hyped, I could not go to sleep, so got up and worked on novel number three.  Not a bad way to get in some write time.

The World Series begins Tuesday, the Royals against the New York Mets. And for me, the whole exciting, mind-blowing, nerve-wracking process begins all over again.

GO ROYALS!!!

FAMILY TIME

Every family has favorite dinners. Ours is lobster and artichoke. Both are an acquired tastes, so it is really important to start em young.

Andy came to visit from Massachusetts this week. He brought enough one and one-half pound lobster for the whole Kansas City family— which includes three little ones—six, four, and almost two.

Doubles

We had lobster shoestring potatoes, buns, asparagus, no artichokes (not in season), and lots of butter for dipping. A great feast and there were enough lobsters for those who wanted more than one. Here is a picture of the six year old who has obviously acquired the taste.

The four year old ate about half and even the baby tried out a few bites. What is your familys favorite?

 

HARMING KANSAS KIDS

New data was released last month detailing the tremendous impact repeated sweeps have had on funding for children’s programs since 1999. The KEY Fund, which would have a balance of approximately $200 million had all funding promises been honored, will instead reach a record low of only $140,000 by fiscal year 2017 because lawmakers chipped away at the fund year by year to use it as a temporary budget stopgap. We have nearly – and likely permanently – depleted this crucial source of funding for children’s programs. These short-term decisions have devastating long-term consequences to both our kids and our economy.

This is an email posted by Kansas Action for Children,  a non-profit, non-partisan organization committed to improving the lives of Kansas children and families by providing comprehensive data, advocating for sound public policy and collaborating with lawmakers. . I am forwarding it to you so that you can see how badly our Kansas legislature treats our children.
