Life On The Ozark Prairie ~ A Pictorial Journey #2

Running horses

Hi and welcome back!! It’s been a real experience living out on the Ozark Prairie…not a bit like living in the city, LOL.  The landscape and scenery are very beautiful and there’s quite a bit of wildlife about.  The birds are very abundant in the “tree oases” and we have visitors of coyotes, deer, doves, raccoons, opossums, & turkeys.  We have even seen an occasional bobcat ~ plus, we have prairie chickens, also!

But, what is wild and untamed can be beautiful all the same.  Here are some photos of this haunting beauty of the Ozark Prairie…

Vintage Modern Dancer Pics (1973)

I have a love for dancing, especially with my past background of  “guild-level” dance performance.   My dance teacher, Gladys Joseph, came from Hollywood and was an excellent teacher!  I performed with some of the KC Chiefs cheerleaders and others…it was lots of fun.

Here are some dance pics I recently came across ~ some vintage dance pics that I want to share with all vintage and/or dance fans out there. Check these out, they are great!!……..
