The Greatest Motorcycle Daredevil Ever: Evel Knievel
On a recent trip back to Kansas to attend my beautiful niece’s graduation from Emporia State University, I spotted a billboard for The Evel Knievel Museum located in Topeka, Kansas…of course I had to stop and check it out!
Many memories of my childhood include Norman and his two sons, Kenny and Dennis. They were more than friends, they were family. They are family.
In memory of Norman Logsdon.
Mother’s Day…It’s Hard to Find the Words
I was thinking about my mother and how I ached to hug her. She passed away unexpectedly in March of 2007. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her. I want to write about her, but it is difficult and, quite frankly, I can’t find the words.
