Oz GirlWill I ever get used to these big, beautiful Kansas skies?

I mean, will I wake up one day and NOT notice them, perhaps be totally bored {yawn} by them and begin to take them for granted?

I sure hope not.

Kansas Sky

I have lived in south central Kansas for a year and a half now, and I am still fascinated and struck with awe at the vast and beautiful prairie skies.

Hi Oz girl! Thanks for sharing such awesome photos. You are so right about the Kansas sky....beautiful!! I'm reading Little House on the Prairie to my kids and throughout the book they are always mentioning the big Kansas sky.

Wow! glorious photos! I can tell you I've lived here for almost nine years and I still get stopped in my tracks by those amazing skies. Of course, I was raised by a dad who would stop at a pay phone when he was out on his job working on oil rigs and call Mom and his "darling dodders" to go look at the sky RIGHT THIS MINUTE! So I can't imagine a time when I won't give the sky a pretty big priority in my life. And then I'm always drawn to think of how it must have been bouncing along on a wagon seat, looking up at those skies with just about nobody for miles and miles around. Amazing...

Paul~ We live 3 miles down a gravel road and then you take a right and go about 1/4 mile down to our house. (We are less than a mile from the OK border.) When there's a car on OUR road coming toward our house, it always arouses our curiosity, and then almost a sense of suspicion if it goes past our house. Because past our house is - nothing. In fact, you can get your car stuck past our house in a rutted muddy road! But we DO love our rural paradise, and I always enjoy hearing the coyotes "talking".... although, sometimes it can be a little unsettling when they sound very close to me at night and I'm outside with the dogs! Good luck on that country place in Missouri, and I hope we'll all get to see some pics of that place soon! :) Susan
