Kansas Troubles/#AtoZChallenge

During the month of April, I’m participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge for my 4th year in a row – 3 of which are on this blog. Each day, except Sundays, there will be a post for the letter of the day as well as keeping with my personal theme of Quilts and Quotes. Feel free to leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you! Also check out the other A to Z’ers in the comment section of the Official A to Z Blog Page.

Kansas Troubles is another Civil War block chosen for the Letter K in the Challenge. In the history of Missouri and Kansas, there has been much animosity calling us Missourians “Bushwackers” while we in turn call them “Redleggers”. This Civil War era name-calling continues on and spills into the college sports arena between The University of Missouri/MU and the University of Kansas/KU. As our eldest is attending KU, we’ve kind of put all that aside for this momma’s sanity.


Plus I must give KU its propers as they had a nearly pristine track record in Basketball up until this game, the final one of the season. In truth, I would have liked to see them move to the Final Four.  Just not meant to be.

Join me again tomorrow for more of the April A to Z Blog Challenge 2017!



  1. We lived 20 minutes from Allen Field House and went to many a game there rooting the Hawks on to BB victory. We still watch them from NH and Rock Chalk Jayhawk. 🙂 However, all of our nieces and nephews are KState Wildcats. It is also funny, that KU rules the BB court and State rules the football field. 🙂 I remember they use to say the good (KU), the bad (KState), and the ugly (MU). 🙂
