No place like home

October 9, 2008

We were on vacation for two and a half weeks and it is good to be home. We drove over 3,200 miles without seeing any accidents, and noted the price of gas ranged from $2.95 to $4.00. On our way home the gas prices started coming down. While we were gone a lot happened to the banking and investment business, and we hope that works out.

It’s fun to see the changes in our own town even when we are gone a short time. We found there is a new Commerce Bank on the 4-H Road and the United Methodist Church will be at a new location on the corner of Gilman Road and Main Street. We wish them all well. Also at our own St. Francis Church, the footing has been poured and part of the foundation in place. I watch with interest the changes on what was once Graham Hill and the Towne Center, anxiously wondering what will be put in those locations.

We missed the LHS homecoming parade but made it to the Friday night football game to see Lansing’s win over Perry-Lecompton. It was great to see such a large crowd there to see the game as well as the Homecoming Royalty. Our band is really great and sharp looking in their beautiful new uniforms.

We also missed the book signing at the Lansing Museum. The title of the book is “Lansing” and was authored by Laura Phillippi and Nolan Sunderman. It is full of Lansing history and lots of great pictures and is on sale at the museum for only $19.95 plus tax. Lots of reminiscing. This makes me think about a reminder to go through your old scrapbooks and if you find any pictures you might have of Lansing businesses or houses from way back, they would find a good home at the museum.

This next Saturday will be “Autumn in the Grove,” This is really a fun fall outing for the whole family. Hope to see you there.
