On Friday, in Kansas City, when it was almost 60 degrees out, I went to Loose Park. I saw a giant pin oak, and a bunch of other cool trees, played ring-around-the-rosy with a squirrel, stared with amazement as the flippers of the geese turned into ice skates as they came in for a landing on the frozen pond, and learned about the last major civil war battle west of the Mississipi (the battle of Westport) which took place on October 23, 1864.
I also studied the habits of the 4 year olds at recess, noting that girls like to hold hands and boys like to put stuff in their pockets.
There were crinkly leaves, Hi Ho! Cherry-O trees, and last but not least I swang on a swing for the first time in many years.
And that my friends, is my idea of a perfectly splendid day.
