    Excerpt From The Story “A Debt Repaid and A Blizzard Endured”:

    I watched the tornado cross the Interstate less than a half mile from where I sat under an overpass. It was early May of 1982 and this was just another moment in a trip, by the time it was completed, that included, a trip on Braniff airlines last flight during a thunderstorm, hot sex in a wet tent, good times with old friends, a flood, a night spent in a bathroom of a turnpike rest area and running out of gas less than 20 miles from home. We won’t even mention the loss of my headlight, the loss of oil due to an over-enthusiastic service station attendant and dining on gnats washed down with a tasty glass of Texas ground water. No, we won’t mention those things because they are another story entirely and will reveal themselves as a chapter in my upcoming book. The story that I am going to relate here today deals with the tornado, (previously mentioned), lost keys, a fried generator and a long overdo debt repaid.

    “DELVING INTO THE MIND OF AN ARTIST

    From start to finish, this is a wonderful, heartwarming, entertaining and heartfelt look into the life of a true adventurer. Few people are willing to share the more intimate moments of their life or bring you along for experiences that have made a huge impact on their lives. The Gypsy provides all this and shares his love of Kansas, the open road, and his personal quest to make a mark in this work. Blogging isn’t easy but he makes it fun to read. His writing is fresh, honest, and sometimes makes you tingle or shed a tear. His photographs bring his story to life and his pride in his home state is evident. This is a delight to read and a book I highly recommend.” -Susanne Lambdin :Author of the Dead Hearts Series-

    Excerpt From The Story “A Love Story”:

    I held a single red rose in my hand to greet her with. As she approached her smile widened and she grabbed the sides of her long leather coat. With a mischievous tilt of her head she pulled her coat open like a flasher in the park. Except instead of bare flesh she revealed a black t-shirt with bold white letters that proclaimed, “REMEMBER MY NAME YOU’LL BE SCREAMING IT LATER.” The shirt proved to be prophetic.

    Customer Review:

    YES THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS “I have not had the Christmas spirit In years. A friend recommended that I get this book and read The story The Night Santa Saved Christmas first. It made me cry tears of joy and restored my faith that Santa lives. I now have my Christmas spirit back and a whole lot of other wonderful feelings after reading this great book. I highly recommend Blogging Kansas.” -Antonia Vargas-  

    Excerpt From The Story “The Night Santa Saved Christmas”:

    The wind rustled the plastic on the windows at 433 East High popping the artificial storm windows in and out like the breathing of some transparent rectangular monster trapped within the window frame. This was made even more unsettling by the fact that the plastic adorned the windows on the inside of the house and not the outside. Jimmy and Patty sat on the couch, a blanket wrapped around their bodies to insulate them from the cold. The floor heater cracked and groaned but did little good to chase off the cold in the drafty un-insulated little house on Topeka’s east side. Jimmy and Patty watched the old GE black and white TV reflect back images of Bing Crosby as he, Rosemary Clooney, Vera Ellen and Danny Kaye sang about a White Christmas. Jimmy looked over at the little tree in the corner, the red, green and gold bubble lights sending their tiny endless stream of bubbles up the tubes to go nowhere and disappear in the glass tip of the cylinder. He then looked back at the black and white image of the tree behind the four singers and though their tree was gray within the flickering image Jimmy knew it was a grander tree than he would ever have.
