Photographic Print

I just love photographs of the Flint Hills. Many times I’ve tried to capture their rolling contours, but they just seem to flatten out in the photograph.  Here Jim Richardson has captured a thunderstorm with his camera. Just click on the picture to see it larger.

On Squidoo, I’ve created a lens with lots of information about the Flint Hills. Check it out.  I made another one about Teterville, Kansas. There used to be a community there in the 1920s and 1930s, but it’s gone now.

I like Jim Richardson’s photos so much, I’m adding a link here so you can see more of them.

Addictive Personalities

I wonder about myself sometimes. When I try something new and it turns out well, then I want to keep working on it. Lately I’ve been trying out Squidoo. It makes a great place to promote my mother’s book. It takes some time to create each lens, but I think the topics will draw the right people over the years. The topics I’ve created include one on Tyro, Kansas and one on pet badgers. Quite varied, but both relate back to My Flint Hills Childhood.
The other topics that relate to the book are An Old-Fashioned Christmas, An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving, and An Old-Fashioned Halloween. In additon, I’ve created one on Feedsack Dresses and one on the Flint Hills. Other topics from the book that might make good Squidoo lenses include Making Rag Dolls,  Being Quarantined, Bertha McGhee’s Life, Vining Genealogy, McGhee Genealogy, and School Days on the Prairie.

I need to stop for awhile and get back to editing my dad’s book. That’s the trouble with some of these websites. They are just really fun once you get past the initial learning stage. I still have a lot to learn about Squidoo and making quality lenses (webpages) there, but I’m off to a good start.
