Toad Stools

Some time you need to yell stop so you can jump out of the car to capture a shot. As we were leaving the cemetery and chatting about the civil war battle that occurred on the south side, I saw these toad stools on the grass. The were HUGE!!!

To get this shot, I used the wide angle lens at 10 and laid down on the grass to get the perspective.
All that was missing were the fairies zipping around scolding the ghosts for partying too late into the night.

Buck O’Neill and Satchel Paige

 

I was able to get out of the house today!! After dropping no.dos. off at a school function, we made our way to Troost & Gregory to find the Forest Lawn / Chapel Hill cemetery.

This cemetery is a who’s who of Kansas City. My main goal was to find Satchel Paige’s grave.  H Roe Bartle is buried there.  There are the Ward’s, the Warnell’s, the Newcomer family, The Waldo’s, etc.

Whole family sections going back 100+ years.

Our last stop was to visit my Kansas City favorite, Buck O’Neill.
