School is back in session, we are producing a “real” fall travel issue and the Kansas State Fair returns this year. The pandemic continues to affect our lives, and no one knows what the next several months will bring, but for now, Kansans are doing their best to live normal lives as safely as possible.
Kansas Country Living is extremely fortunate to receive the support of local, state and national advertisers at a time when we continue to face unknowns in business and health. Our travel section beginning on Page 6, is supported by several Kansas traveland event-related advertisers. We are especially thankful for our ongoing relationship with Kansas Travel and Tourism, whose staff generously shares their event information to help us build the twice-yearly travel issues (May and September). Safe and healthy travels!
Letter to the Editor
I enjoy the Kansas County Living and read it cover to cover. I have noticed Kilowatt was adopted after the December 2006 ice storm. Is she still alive? We had a pair of litter mates — the female died at about 9 1/2 years and the male lacked two month of being 15 years old. We buried them in a spot in our backyard and I made a marker for them with the dates. Just wondering!

Kilowatt has been well cared for and takes her own safety as seriously as she takes her KCL column, so she’s been with us a long time and is still going strong. Here is a recent photo of her from just before the 2021 Prairie Land annual meeting. She wasn’t very happy that Norman told her she couldn’t stay once people were being seated. Kilowatt plans to work a few more years before retiring, so we are wishing for her continued good health. Thanks for checking in on her!
