Return to Russell
Rarely have I been happier to be in the Russell High School gymnasium than I am tonight. It means my troubles in Kansas City are over, and I’m back to work doing what I get paid to do (why I don’t know), watching sporting events.
I left Overland Park at 11:20 this morning. The drive was smooth, without construction or accidents to slow me down. Even with a detour at Topeka and a wait in the drive-thru line at Wendy’s, I was in the garage at exactly 3:02 p.m. I picked up my mail and spent a couple of hours downstairs relaxing.
I’m back in Russell for the first time since leaving for Kansas City the day after Christmas. Maybe I should have come back earlier.
I arrived at RHS in plenty of time for the girls varsity game, which tipped at 6:05. Ellsworth leads 12-9 at the end of the 1st quarter.
