Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Today, I'll share the last of the pix we took on the super-long walk Maggie and I took on Thanksgiving. Let's wrap this thing up!
When Mags left off yesterday, we had just passed the KSU stadiums ...
|"I think that's about it for KSU stuff for today, Mags."|
"Yeah, once we get past the stadium parking lot and the billboard up there."
We were on one of the main roads through town - it leads right to our area! We walked and walked and walked, then ...
|"Hey, that's CiCo Park on the left!"|
In keeping with trying to provide some background on things here in Manhattan, it's called CiCo for City-County -- both entities have ownership of the park. Years and years ago, when Dad did his first tour at Fort Riley, he and Mom lived right by the park!
|"Over there, Mags?"|
"No, we just passed by where they used to live."
|"That must have been cool living right there!"|
"I'll bet it was! I heard one time when the rodeo was at the park,
a donkey broke loose and came over to play with our great sisters, Jesse and Lucky!"
Now THAT would be cool, wouldn't it?!!?
Just past the entrance to Hudson Trail, I noticed this sign for the first time:
|"Hey, look, Mags. 'Steep hill for bikes'."|
"Looks like the rider already took a header off of it. Ha roo roo roo!"
