I didn’t go to Kansas City to make a post out of it but here are some photos that DaWife took on the trip
Some shots from the Bridge over the Trainyard
The National World War 1 Memorial
And finally Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals
and a quick video clip of same.
Alas the pictures from Pizza West in Shawnee Kansas which in addition to an excellent Pizza Buffet and a good red sauce has a fine selection of pinball machines, nor the Up Down Bar Arcade with a great selection of machines all at a quarter a play, nor the Crown Point tavern which combines excellent burgers with a downstairs full of pinball machines all that is on my son’s phone but I’ll close with this.
When we got to our hotel in KC the AC wasn’t working, and the 2nd night there it was pretty bad for DaWife who has breathing issues. I tweeted this out and heard both from Priceline where I booked the room through and the parent company of Four Points. The next day when we came back from the Red Sox KC afternoon game the General manager and the maintenance guy were both waiting for us, it appears that the storm that swept through the area just before we arrived and caused power outages throughout the area has shot the thermostat on the unit. They were able to repair it while we were at the game, and the AC was cranking, nevertheless they offered us a different room if we wanted it (that wasn’t possible the night before as the place was full of Red Sox fans as were the surrounding hotels in the chain). We elected to say where we were and had a good two nights and when we left on Friday the general manager was there to see us off and make sure things were OK.
The measure of a company is not if there are no problems, there are always problems in life, the measure is how you deal with problems when they come up.
