brookside: Mom Gets A New Bathroom! - 01/26/13 10:06 AM
As you know, my Mom had two strokes in 2012; one in May and the second in September. Her right arm and leg were affected by the strokes, making it necessary to move her bedroom from the second floor to the first floor.

About 30 inches wide by 4 feet long. We brought the wall out to give us a full 5 feet, then (10 comments)

brookside: Torn Between Two Loves - 06/26/11 02:46 AM
This week, I fell in love - twice! The first home is just a short walk from Governor Stumpy's. During Prohibition, it was a Speakeasy.

The craftsmanship and architectural details will entice and seduce you to fall in love just as I did. You can see it for yourself this Sunday, June 27th, betwween the hours of 2pm and 4pm.

Armour Hills is one of the more popular neighborhoods in the Brookside area of Kansas City. What makes it so desirable? When JC Nichols built many of these homes during the 30's and 40's, he stipulated that each home should look unique. So, you have this beautiful neighborhood full of Tudors, Cape Cods, and Dutch Style Colonials built with brick, stone, and wood in all different sizes. No cookie cutter houses here! You will find strong neighborhood associations which helps keep crime from spreading into the area. People walking their dogs along the tree lined streets stop and talk to (4 comments)

Over the holiday a conversation about taxi cab companies arose amongst our group at Charlie Hoopers. Four out of six of us had positive stories to share regarding the same local cab company. I'd like to share one of the stories with you. After a somewhat hectic day, Erin arrived home to discover her purse was not with her. She telephoned all of the places she had stopped that day but no one had seen her purse. This was not just any purse, this was a day timer organizer with all of her contacts, calendar, credit cards, ID, basically everything she (3 comments)
