Took some photos in Kansas...including in this field of sunflowers. How can you pass these and not stop your car to take a photo? The sky there is so huge, and the fields go on forever.
Here's a panoramic via the wonders of photostitch..you can see the farmer in his tractor on the side. Of course we waved at each other. Everyone in rural Kansas waves. I like that. It's sort of a lifting of the fingers wave, not lifting your hand from the steering wheel if you're driving, but an acknowledgement of the other person.
My dad spoke at my grandfather's funeral and said that his dad always waved at motorists going by the farm. It didn't matter if he knew them or not, he waved. He asked him once why he did that, and grandpa said it just made him feel good. I think that's a good answer.
