In November, we had two sets of visitors!! Our first was Robert and Shanna ParkeHarrison. Robert and I have known each other since second grade when our fathers were stationed together in Germany. Robert, "Bobby", and I were also in an opera, Amal and the Night Visitors, together in Germany as well.
The dandylion picture is Kristopher's favorite!
Turns out, Robert's parents are both from the Joplin area. We were stationed in Joplin after Germany. We have remained friends with the Harrison family over the years but this was the first time I've gotten to see Robert in a very long time. He and his wife both attended the Kansas City Art Institute and they came back to do a show at the Nelson Art Gallery. Kye and I attended the artists' talk then Kris and David joined us for the exhibit. It was wonderful to see the Harrison's again and Kye was very intrigued by Robert and Shanna's work.
