I met my sister for lunch today.
She had a vacation day.
We met in Prairie Village, Kansas.
It is where we grew up.
Prairie Village is a satellite city within the metropolitan area
of Kansas City, Missouri.
Our father built our house in 1954.
When we were kids we would walk to the shopping area often as we lived about ten blocks away.
Meeting for lunch for fun.
After lunch we walked around the Village.
The shopping district has changed over the years.
The clock tower was added and many more shops have sprung up.
They still have an ice cream parlor and a drug store.
There are dress shops, a department store, a day spa, a grocery store and a music store.
Many new landscape features with a mindfulness to native plants.
They have prairie plants; sumac, prairie grasses and Black-eyed Susan's.
A new fountain has been placed around the sculpture of the Prairie Family.
I remember it from when I was a child.
