Flat Ruthie and I went out to pick up my beautiful daughter from the airport.  Nebraska took a picture of us at the airport and I hope she decides to share with me.  Anywho, after she dropped us off at my place.  Setting down KT’s bag, KT, Ruthie and me went out for a little walk to the bus stop so we could get something to eat.

We stopped at the Mutual of Omaha building to take pictures in front of the swimmer display for the Olympic Trials that are being held here at the Quest Center.  KT came in on the same airplane as the swim team from Notre Dame!! (and I gave them a shout out for Beth and Ken!)

Earlier this week Ruthie and I met this Father/daughter combo returning from a game at the College World Series that is being held here as well as the Swimming Trials.  I thought it apropos with the events of this weekend!

Now I am not sure of Real Ruth’s politics but if she did not want Flat Ruthie to make a political statement, she should not have sent her to Omaha! (big SMILE)  On our way home from a big fat 5 Guys Burgers, we saw these Vets who are essentially protesting US foreign policy.  They REALLY enjoyed taking the picture with Flat Ruthie and to me THAT is what has made travels with Flat Ruthie special.

I am sure that I will take Flat Ruthie to ‘someplace’ but to me, EVERYPLACE is someplace!!  The people I run into and have made a connection with here in Omaha are wide and varied, but at the same time, patently predictable!  Who would NOT expect me to be friendly with the owner/operator of the Cookie Company at Westroads Mall!

Hope that you enjoyed meeting my daughter and look forward to more photos of her, Flat Ruthie and myself in the coming days!!

Love & Rockets!!

KT is sooo beautiful, Mark. I know you will enjoy every minute of the time you spend with her. I love the picture of you and her by the swimmer display and I like KT's involvement with your other house guest, Flat Ruthie. I think it is so neat too, like I said before, that you are enlisting others in your adventures with Flat Ruthie. She is having quite the time in Omaha!

I know you will treasure your time with KT! I look forward to hearing of where your days take you and the adventures you experience!

KT shares some of your wonderful physical features (including your great smile). Enjoy your time with her. Kids grow up so fast.
