KC for a different reason

The Russell Lady Broncos’ offense was missing in action last night in Hoisington. It was going to be difficult to defeat Ellinwood if Russell’s offense was functioning, but without it, the Broncos were in big trouble.

The Eagles won 41-30, defeating Russell for the second time this season and winning the Hoisington Winter Jam for the second consecutive season. Russell is 6-6 heading into

The Bronco boys fell to 2-10 after losing 60-51 to Hoisington in the third place game.

I got home at 8:15 last night, got packed and got to bed. I had to go to sleep at a decent hour, because I knew I had a four-hour drive today with my parents to Kansas City.

My father is having heart surgery tomorrow at the University of Kansas Medical Center in KCK. My mother does not like to drive the part of the trip through the Flint Hills, so I agreed to drive. We stopped for a good lunch at Qboda in Junction City, and following a break for gas between Lawrence and Tonganoxie, we got to the Holiday Inn across the street from the medical center at 3.

After they checked in, I motored on across the Missouri River to my usual lodging place in the Northland, the Courtyard on Tiffany Springs. Everything looked good in the room.

I went to Hy-Vee on Barry Road pick up some necessities–pop and sushi (LOL)–before going to Buffalo Wild Wings Zona Rosa for the first time since my awful incident of Jan. 4. Liz was overjoyed to see me. So was Tori. It’s nice to be missed.

I have work to do tonight and tomorrow morning before i head to Overland Park in the afternoon to get my Chevrolet serviced. My father’s surgery is set for 3 p.m. I will be praying it goes well, but trying to keep my mind off of it. I’m very fortuante this is the first major hospital stay for him since he had a concussion in November 1970.

So far so good. Hope it stays that way, both for my father and for me.
