Keep your eyes open -- and you'll see alot

You'd be amazed what you might find by just keeping your eyes wide open while you're out driving the Kansas back roads.
For instance, did you know that Cawker City has more than one Ball of Twine? Artist Cher Heller Olson painted many classic paintings around town and inserted a ball of twine. Look into that eye very carefully...
Citi Bureau? Found in Damar, a French Canadian settlement in Rooks County. You'll find many other French motif buildings, too. It doesn't matter that most of those buildings hare abandoned.
Mri Pillar's Fork Art in Lucas spruces up Brant's Meat Market west wall. The World's Largest Souvenir Travel Plate adorns the roadside just outside of town east of the cafe on K-18.
Then there are just odd things -- like the fire department water hose just lying beside the hydrant. It saves time if you have a fire right there. Where will you see that? We better not tell.
And mailboxes often gain the attention of the observant eye. Some kind of a tractor/crane sets right over the mail box in Dover.
These things and more will you find as you keep your eye open to "Get Kansas!"
