Re: Arkansas 2019 Part 5

This is a tiny flower, which makes the even tinier yellow flower-like doodads in the middle remarkable. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50216867567_8ac17af229_c_d.jpg Interesting sign on a rock, warning you of a high cliff.

Re: Crossword Puzzle Just for KCRag

Aw, shucks. Thanks! You obviously paid close attention to the thing—which I appreciate—or you wouldn't have spotted the defect. You are cool, too.

Re: Crossword Puzzle Just for KCRag

Thank you for noticing my mistake, WSPanic. Aaaarrrggghhh! I tried so hard not to mess up. And thank you, Normalthings, for your kind comment. I'm happy to hear you messed with the puzzle, albeit flawed. The puzzle was flawed, not you. :roll:

Crossword Puzzle Just for KCRag

These really are photos, or I should say, scans. And they definitely pertain to Kansas City. I discovered an appreciation for crossword puzzles and decided to make one myself. I already made one for another site (TheFossilForum), so this one was easier. I apologize for not following the crossword-pu...

Re: Arkansas 2019 Part 5

The one bathhouse we visited indoors was more like a museum, where you could see how it existed years ago. I didn't know if any were actually used now, so I did a quick check on the Internet and found a good site. Apparently, there are several that are still used as true bathhouses. One bathhouse ha...

Street shot of Hot Springs, Arkansas. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50025798416_b34c3fcd7c_c_d.jpg I was amazed at the number of bathhouses in this town.

Re: St. Louis

I'm in my 70s now, but I remember fondly of all those birthdays I spent as a young child on the Admiral. My parents worked, married and lived in St. Louis until they moved to Kansas City in 1939, where I was born several years later. We visited St. Louis a lot, and experiences were always pleasant. ...

What was downtown and the area around the building like then? I posted a topic, Baltimore Updraft, back in 2006. I see that it is still there, at https://kcrag.com/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=9503&p=169791&hilit=macy%27s+baltimore+skirt#p169791 . It may be of interest to you. The most wonderful sites I re...

I worked at what was then a new building, Traders National Bank. It was my first real job. I sorted checks for $1.29/hour. Times have certainly changed since 1963.

There is a stream behind the Clinton Library. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49956875168_b21b0d6d65_c_d.jpg We begin our walk on the bridge. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49956875113_9def0ce149_c_d.jpg Flower boxes were a nice touch. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49956875078_013cee4...

Re: Arkansas 2019 Part 4

We didn't really visit Little Rock per se. The Clinton Library was certainly worth a visit. We stayed in Conway the night before. After the Library, we drove 50 miles to Hot Springs, which was very impressive. I was surprised at how many people were there, taking in the historic delights. The numero...

We’re still visiting the Clinton Library. Here we have what probably passed as a Christmas tree. It was maybe 6 to 8 feet tall. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49899168048_d8f0cc6ecd_c_d.jpg I took this picture because of the students on the stairs, but you can see that crystal tree on the right...

Many gifts were given to President Clinton during his administration. A number of them were on display in his library. A sign explained the practice very well: “STATE GIFTS—No state visit is complete without an exchange of gifts. These gestures of diplomacy and goodwill date back to the earliest day...
