Gashland/Gladstone for the most part. I still have a half interest in the house in Gladstone where I grew up after the age of six. I refer to Gladstone as the Raytown of Clay County.

Oh, how about another KC metro joke? What's the difference between Olathe and yogurt?







Yogurt has live culture.

Yeah ... good plan!

I was talking to my mom the other day about it (she loves snow!) and she told me she'd made a snow angel - regardless of how her neighbors would feel seeing her acting like a kid...
She's so funny!!

Anyway, I told her I had not, but was reminded of sledding, tobogganing, skiing and tubing...and how fun it was. Later I went out to do my "shift" on our 40-foot driveway, husband had done the first swipe - a wheel-wide path to the street. No city plow had come by (and didn't all day long).

While I was out there, a guy on an ATV with a plowblade rolled past my house. I was standing huffing and puffing and he glanced over and nodded "hello" and I waved at him. A few minutes later, he came back ... gestured "you want help?" and I nodded. I asked what he charges, and he said, "Whatever you think it was worth when I'm done." I stepped inside and told husband, who promptly dug $50 out of the household stash. The guy did the rest of our driveway, and the street as far as two houses down!, making sure he wasn't leaving "rolls" behind the neighbors' already-shoveled driveways.

It was a Godsend. So I went back in and called my mom, and said, "Well, turns out I did make a snow angel! He was on an ATV with a blade, and arrived just in time!"


I like the way we roll in the neighborhood. We know our neighbors and we get out there and trade goods and services with each other. Excellent community self-sufficiency.

I just texted my bro and my kids' dad - "This SO reminds me of Summit County!" (for you all = Breckenridge/Keystone, ca. 1983-86...yeah...we all three lived there. This was nuthin but normal.

Here we go again!!!
My "snow angel" just rolled up (took 5 tries on the ATV just to get from the corner to the driveway!) and started plowing us out!!
Yay. It's BEAUTIFUL outside - not that cold, huge fat flakes.....silent as can be.

Spectacular.
Awesome experience.
I hope no one dies.
