Home Show

Driving down Ward Parkway, there are some homes that are just my favorites. This one was built by Boss Tom Pendergast, one of the first in the area, for his wife after their trip to Europe. They were especially impressed by the architecture of Provence.

This is supposedly the home of Len Dawson, former Chiefs quarterback and TV sports anchor. It was built in the last 5-6 years.

The Country Club Christian Church is a lovely compliment to the homes in the area.

The Meyer Circle fountain, known as the Seahorse fountain, was damaged by vandals several years ago, the top and upper bowl were shipped to Italy for repairs and returned to grace our city once again.

My favorite is a Japanese style home with shoji windows

that I didn't get in one shot.

A few days later, I saw this pooch cruising Shawnee Mission Parkway. Notice the owner's posture. Posted by Picasa
