Across the Missouri Border/Missouri-Made Mondays

After last night's heartbreaking loss between the KC Chiefs and that other team who will remain nameless for the purpose of this post, I'm steering towards a new direction in sports. That of KU in Lawrence, Kansas who are currently ranked #2 in the nation. My daughter gets bragging rights as a student there, in case I haven't mentioned it a kazillion times.

And this matters in "Missouri-Made Mondays" because?????
Part of my weekend was spent creating a potato bag for Rachel's apartment. While on a fabric excursion, she noticed these in the remnants bin and so it saved a few pennies in creating this 'legacy team' potato bag. Fun fact,  James Naismith (November 6, 1861 – November 28, 1939) wrote the original basketball rule book and founded the University of Kansas basketball program. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Naismith
The 'gotcha' moment from the weekend.

From Missouri, wishing you a wonderful Monday!
