Howdy to Hoxie and a Salute to Salina!

I spent a few wonderful days in the state of Kansas (my first visit there!) at a couple of Catechist Rallies, one in each end of the state. Saturday was in Salina on the eastern side of the state and Sunday was in Hoxie on the wesern side of the state. That made for some nice long rides…beautiful! Thanks to everyone for coming out to the catechist rallies…I learned so much from you and I hope I offered you a few things to “chew on.” Here are some pics:

Gotta love a meal in a small town! Great breaded chicken!
