Wichita Lineman

Well I had to post this video of the song Wichita Lineman at some time.

It was my father’s favorite song of all time. He tried to sing like Glen Campbell but failed miserably.

I’ve Eventually Moved Into A New Apartment!

It's been a long time I've moved apartment here in Wichita, but I eventually plucked up courage to do it. 

You know, I was born in this great city and in my life I have moved about 10 to 12 times in total, Every time that I have moved , it has been a terrible experience.

Sometimes, some of my prized possessions have been broken.

Once, one of my cats disappeared​. It was very sad as I never saw her again. Maybe she went into the removal van and disappeared to another State. Still I like to think she's still alive and running around a farm in Kansas somewhere. Life is not good for a feline in the big city. They should really have space to run around.

Well I moved from the west side of Wichita to the east side, really to be closer to my work.

On the day of moving, everything was packed very carefully and some great guys from a moving company helped me to move lock, stock and barrel from this apartment to my new apartment​.

The company even has one of those Youtube videos that they use for marketing. Here it is. It's nothing special, but it caught my eye when I was looking for an apartment movers in Wichita​.

Well, it's time to settle down into my new home now. I'll think I'll go and introduce myself to my new neighbours. 

One of my neighbours works in the local hospital as a surgeon. I find all things medcal fascinating so I might go and talk to him first​.

Hope he makes great coffee!

Catch you later

Cosmosphere’s planetarium in Wichita

Associated Press wrote:

The Cosmosphere’s is planning a complete renovation for its Justice Planetarium.

The Hutchinson-based facility announced Thursday in a news release that the planetarium will close its doors Feb. 2 for the planned upgrades. It is expected to reopen April 12.

Upgrades include the installation of a new digital projection system that it says will transform the venue into a state-of-the-art facility.

The new projection system will utilize the planetarium’s full dome for all programs and imagery. It also has the ability to link via the Internet to other planetariums, observatories and telescopes around the world in real time.

Other improvements include new carpet, seats, electric and sound, LED lighting and other work.

The rest of the Cosmosphere plans to stay open during the planetarium renovation.

I haven’t blogged for a while now as I’ve been kinda busy. I’ve got a new boyfriend and I’ll introduce you to him later. Funny enough, we met at the planetarium here in Wichita. It’s romantic, isn’t it?

The planetarium is one of my favorite buildings in Wichita.

Which is yours?

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas

Hi everyone,

It's a little late to wish everone a Happy Christmas​, but I hope you had a great Christmas and really enjoyed yourself with your loved ones.

This is a great graphic that I got from Canva​. I was able to edit it and put my own name on it.

Cool, isn't it?

I enjoy my blogging now as I get used to WordPress and ​all its ins and outs.

I can't stop writing sometimes :)

A Twisted Ankle And the Power of Crystal Healing

energy healing crystal

Oops I haven't written anything for a couple of weeks now.

Unfortunately while shopping in Walmart I fell over and twisted my ankle very badly. I'm the sort of person that likes to feel sorry for themselves and so I didn't feel like writing anything.

I'm better now, thanks to the healing that I have received from my lucky crystal.

Some people think I am mad depending on the power from the crystal, but it's what I believe in and that's that.

My mother was a white witch. She's dead now. God rest her soul. But she brought me up believing in lots of strange things.

I'll tell you about them later.

Bye for now!

Keeper Of The Plains in Wichita Ks

Keeper Of The Plains Wichita KS

Today I went for a walk along the banks of the Little Arkansas River. It was a little cold and I had to wrap up warm.

In this picture you can see the Keeper of the Plains which is a rather large steel sculpture that was erected to celebrate the United States Centennial. I'm not really into art and stuff like that but this figure of a Native American seems to do something to me.

It's quite imposing, isn't it?

Talking about art galleries, I think my favorite gallery in the world is the Louvre in Paris. I went there when I was about 21. I especially remember seeing the Mona Lisa and all the surrounding Japanese tourists, taking photos with their multi million pixel cameras.

Wish I could afford a camera like they had. Then I will be able to stroll around Wichita and take photos as fantastic as the one in this post about the Keeper Of The Plains.  

One day, I hope. You see really I dream about being a little bit richer than I am now. The roof's leaking a bit and I just need to make more money than I do at the moment.

If you have any ideas then leave a comment below.

Well I've written enough now and I'm drying up.

Have a good day

Your friend,




Beyoncé Is My Favorite

If you asked me what my favorite music star is, I would reply that it was Beyoncé.

My favorite track is Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)

I first got turned on to her by one of my friends from high school. Her name is Debbie Wingfield. Although Debbie and I were best of friends for many years we now rarely see each other as she has moved to New York State, a long way from here. Sometimes she calls me at Christmas and we catch up on old times.

I nearly bumped into Beyoncé once when she was coming out of a Walmarts here in Wichita. I don't know what she bought but I can imagine she can buy anything she wants.

My job pays peanuts, and I don't go to Walmarts as often as Beyoncé, but it helps to keep the house running and I can go out on a Saturday night to one of the local bars in my district.

Have a nice day!


Getting To Grips With My New Theme

Well as you may have guessed in my first post online, I haven’t quite got to grips with the new theme I’m using so let’s try a video post. I’ve chosen video at the format in the back office of WordPress.

One of my favourite films of all time is “When Harry Met Sally”. I especially like the scene when she is faking an orgasm. That gives me the giggles everytime.

So how has my day been? It’s been ok. Hard at work as usual. I work as a secretary for a realtor in downtown Wichita. John, my boss is a really great guy and takes me out for lunch from time to time. We had Chinese today. It was a little bit greasy but ok.


My Life in Wichita

Wichita At Night

​Hi everyone I want to introduce myself.

My name is Susan Jones and this is my blog about my everyday humdrum life in the city of Wichita in the state of Kansas. I’m single, but that doesn’t mean if you’re a single man with rippling muscles, that I want you to contact me for a date. That’s completely out of the question.

You see, I split up with my husband, Ted, 6 months ago and after that terrible experience of deciding who was going to to get the shi tzu, I don’t really want to get into a relationship at the moment.

Anyway I kept the shih tzu. Her name is Penny. I found her when I dropped a penny on the street in London. Now you know why she's called that.

Today wasn't the best of the my life.

When I came back from work to my house today I found that I had lost my keys. I started crying. You know, I'm an emotional woman. Maybe I do need a man

The company that I was used was a new locksmith in Wichita and they told me that they just started serving the area. Be sure to give them a ring if you ever need a locksmith in Wichita KS.

Anyway I didn't know what to do so I contacted one of those nice friendly locksmith guys that you see driving around. They came ever so quick and soon I was putting away the hankies and putting my feet up in my old and dilapidated home.

After my terrible experience I decided to sit down with my favorite drink, Baileys and enjoy an old episode of Friends. That show always makes me laugh. You need a laugh at the end of a hard day, don't you?

Well, I've started my blog and I'll try to write something everyday. It will help me to improve my writing skills. I've always wanted to be a writer.

Bye for now!​
