Simple Elegance

The Czech Presbyterian church sits alone on a hilltop in Saunders County, about 5 miles southwest of Wahoo, Nebraska. Rebuilt in 1928, I was impressed with the simple elegance of the interior. Thought for the Day:  "K-I-S-S", keep it simple, stupid.

The first event was early morning, and her last … Continue reading Long Day
