That's seriously cool! I'm watching this alternative history series ("For All Mankind") where the space race never ended. The NASA head engineer is a lady who plays jazz piano at clubs after hours- uses it as a bridge to deal with the Russians. Would be fun if they added an astro-sax-naught to the mix.
Born in Lawrence (Jayhawk) grew up in Manhattan (Wildcat) and graduated from Wichita State. Wow- I never would have guessed you lived in Topeka! Don't you live in France now or somewhere exotic?So where in Kansas?
I lived in Topeka for about 7 years...my son was born there.
