    Kansas' Flint Hills

    In the middle of the State, we have a series of hills that stretch for miles with little or no inhabitants but animals. Mainly cows but lately we have become a haven for wild horses that have been transferred here and also some who have been born here. Hundreds of beautiful animals will stand...

    Animals It's beginning to look a lot like...Thanksgiving! Show your turkeys!

    There seems to be no dedicated turkey thread so I thought...why not (something something Dayton Allen)? Check out these rude snoods! 😺 I giggle at this one every time, because I keep thinking of it in one of those Revolutionary War 3-cornered hats with a musket by its side:
