Erie and Moran, Kansas
We spent the night in Joplin, Missouri. It’s hot. It’s hot everywhere in the country.
We stopped in the little town of Erie, KS, a church picnic spot, for lunch. It was 91 degrees. So much nicer than any degrees in that horrible humidity in Mississippi and Louisiana. Beans is happy. Me too.
Not much further we passed through Moran, population barely over 500.
Sign upon entering town read: Home of Debra Dene Barnes. Miss America 1968.
Wow, how cool is that? Miss America out of a little town in Kansas.
Here she is.
She is 73 today. This her in later years. She was being interviewed by CBS as the pageant was disrupted at the time by a women’s lib protest. I don’t know her age in the photo.
It made me reflect; live every day the best regardless of the weather.
Ah, living each day! Good idea...rather than just existing through it.
I was just in Branson yesterday at Silver Dollar City
