Somethings ARE better in the Country


Like this super automatic car wash in Garden City, KS.  We have nothing like this in Denver!  And after the bugs I collected on my front windshield and grill I needed this.  The car was spotless after I left the establishment.  It was $13.  The attendant said the $12 wouldn’t ‘git all the bugs out’ so there you go.

Japanese Internment WWII


During WW2 there were many internment sites.  Most people would be surprised to hear that one of them was located in south eastern Colorado.  Just outside of Granada, Colorado.  The ‘authorities’ were primarily concerned with Japanese Americans near the west coast of the US but that didn’t stop them from interning thousands of  JA inland.  While they eventually had their own town , with schools, sporting fields, farming, etc it was nothing compared to their own lives before internment.
