Visiting my brother

One of the things on my list was to visit my brothers gravesite. As I mentioned in an earlier post, he is buried at Fort Scott Military Cemetery.

I didn't know my brother was gone ( I guess every family has its own tales)until I tried to find him to let him know our oldest brother has died. So on this trip I just needed to go by and say "goodbye and tell him how much I loved him". It was wonderful to get the chance. I'm having a hard time with this so I will just move on.

On US54 in Kansas near the Missouri line I spotted this earth-sheltered home and stopped to take a picture. I knocked on the door hoping to talk but they were hiding out. I know they were home because a glass with ice was on the patio table. Just wanted to ask to take a few pictures from different spots.

Now this is a sad story - not to know about the death of a sibling. You're right, though, most families have stories about lost members. It flies in the face of the conventional wisdom about what families are like.

Earth sheltered homes make such good sense.

Sam - come by and see our earthship in Colorado - we have 80 acres and plenty of space to park you MH - ;-) And you can take all the pictures you want.
