Sunflower Streams - Glenda Stafford
"Recently, I was watching a movie on TV. I noticed that in one scene, at a sporting event, I saw throngs of people all crowded together. I felt nostalgic. That wouldn't happen today. I wistfully recalled how handshakes way back then (last year) were automatic, hugs were frequent, and masks were something worn only at Hallowe'en or for illegal activities."
"When I grew up in Kansas in the 1950s, the Kansas State Fair was one of the biggest events of the year. At least, that's what I and my sisters thought. Back then, the Fair was held in Topeka, our hometown. (More on that subject in a moment.)"
"A short time ago, I travelled to Grand Junction, Colorado, from my eastern Kansas home. My nephew was getting married and I had been invited to attend....And, yes, I came home with several great stories, but the best one involved my ride to the airport as I began my trip."
