Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.


Can't believe it's already the middle of June. I know it's cliche' but geez it sure seems like this year is zooming by at a high warp speed.

I said that the other day to my third-grade ESchramwich. She replied "Well, it felt like I was in third grade forever." She'll be in fourth come this fall.

Work is going OK. Not high stress or freaking out on anything. However, it hasn't been without drama. Contract employees have been the current challenge. They're a very interesting part of our workforce.

Attended a Hispanic Scholarship program Thursday night, June 17. It was cool watching outstanding Kansas City-area students. Made me very proud. Oh, and the U. of Kansas President was in the audience. After the program I made it a point to thank her for any effort to keep the Big 12 together. Although I still think it's inevitable that eventually consolidation will happen. Until then.

Recently completed a 4,800-mile roadtrip with my mother. Kansas City, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas, Bakersfield, San Jose, Berkeley, Sacramento, California mountains, Reno, Elko, Salt Lake City, Laramie, Cheyenne, Denver, Santa Fe, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Kansas City was the general route.

It was an awesome trip and a wonderful memory. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It included seeing family, attending a niece's graduation from Cal-Berkeley, and lots of sight seeing. Returned home on Memorial Day. Just a fantastic start to what I hope will be a super summer. For you too.
