Happy sesquicentennial Kansas! Well, happy birthday a day early! That’s 150 years of being a state. That means the post office has issued a new Kansas stamp, and I have sent my #1 minion to pick up a book for me.
That is all. Thank you.
I debated prattling on about this plains state’s pre-history (defined as human occupation without a system of writing) and history (defined by the introduction of the written word), but I figured that most people perusing my blog aren’t interested in an archaeology lesson. Man, I miss doing field work!
When I used the word sesquicentennial in conversation, I got funny looks. What? Does no one speak Latin anymore?
