1st Day Away

Today was my first day away from Ralphie! I don't believe I've ever been so far away from him before...but he did just fine at home with big brother today.

I spent the day in Manhattan, KS. You know you are from Kansas when you think of Manhattan as the home of K-State and NOT New York City! Richard had a baseball exposure camp today. Exposure meaning the players show off what they can do on the field. It was a great learning experience for both of us. He got a chance to play with some very fine baseball players and compare his skills to theirs. Now he know what to work on for next season.

It felt strange to be back in Manhattan for the first time in nearly 20 years. Much has changed! Some of the old joints are still around...Last Chance Saloon, Bushwacker's, Varney's. I just wish we had more time to explore. All in all...a very relaxing day.
