I want to thank everyone who checks out my posts on a regular basis and let you know that I am not sitting about idly, but am diligently and carefully working on the sequel to Serenia's Kanzas. I take this assignment very seriously since the characters are family members who paved the way for all my family today. With this in mind I traveled recently back to Ellsworth, Kansas (see The Cowboy post) to revisit the sights they saw and reminisce with relatives who share family who lived beside and among ours during the same period of 1871 to 1910 in Ellsworth. By taking more time to garner the photographs in other cousins' treasure troves I have actually been sent one of Elijah Johnson, (by cousin Edith Marie Wolsieffer Tucker) complete with the mutton chop side burns rumored to be his one sin of vanity. I just know all readers will enjoy even more the telling of the next part of the Campbells, Johnsons and soon to be Bostons history which will include the sirloin and the casserole with nothing left out of the lives of true Pioneers in this Great Country of Ours.....America.

PublishAmerica Presents With Arms Wide Open by Kathleen Boston McCune
Frederick, MD November 8, 2011 -- PublishAmerica is proud to present With Arms Wide Open: About Kathleen Boston McCune by Overland Park, Kansas author Kathleen Boston McCune.
“From the hot and arid wheat fields of Salina to the deserts of Arizona and the bayous of Baton Rouge, I spent my life to date exploring the challenges ever present in our America,” McCune said. “The eldest of six children, I accepted responsibilities early, relishing the results of a job well done. Learning too of the rich strains in our heritage inspired me to heights which might otherwise have felt too high to reach.
“Beginning my career as Deputy Treasurer for the State of Kansas was a political apex which encouraged me to continue in the field of budgets, investments and computerization at a time in America when these areas of management were and still are the integral part of whether we as a Leader in the World will continue in that coveted role or not.
“Perhaps in the reading and enjoyment of my life, those who are also pivotal in these roles or could be, might too take away the compulsion to keep the United States as the Leading Nation our forefathers and foremothers oftentimes gave their lives to achieve, if not for them, for us and our children and grandchildren……a Nation which not only is formed with the religions and nationalities of all Nations, but one which educates her children to the utmost of knowledge already history and the scientific possibilities of what may be learned in the future.”
