* * * Welcome to the WWW page of Emily M. Parris * * *
Hi. My name is Emily. I like to write poetry so in my www page I'll give you an opportunity to read some. I live in Kansas City, Missouri with my husband, Jim. Jim is blind but that doesn't slow us down at all. In the summer we love to go to Worlds of Fun, Oceans of Fun and to all the outdoor plays and concerts here in Kansas City.> We used to live very close to Westport. It was famous during the covered wagon days when it was a stop off for people to outfit their wagons before heading west. Independence, MO is also in this area and it was even more famous. You may have heard of the Santa Fe, California and Oregon Trails. Well, all of those criss-cross our area here in Kansas City, Missouri, and in Independence they have a big celebration once a year in honor of those trails. It's called Santa-Cali-Gon Days.
Another thing Kansas City is famous for is Hallmark Cards. It was started here in Kansas City and is now the world headquarters. Crown Center is a mall that is part of the Hallmark complex. They used to have wonderful, free Friday night concerts, but then they quit having them. Crown Center has never been quite the same since. :-(
Well, I hope you have enjoyed your visit so far. I'll be adding things as time goes by since I love to tinker with my html documents. You can write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
