My dad loves buffalo. He loves the Kansas plains where he grew up, and he has a sacred respect for the flatlands. And boy, does he love those bison.
His office is covered in buffalo paraphernalia. Some that's pretty cool stuff, actually.
Dad went so far as to register the license plate "BUFFALO" with the Kansas State Department of Motor Vehicles and drove around in his pickup truck for at least a decade with the license plate "BUFFALO" proudly displayed.
So, the other day, I found a buffalo sweater:
It's geeky. And warm. And I bought it in tribute of my dad. It's officially become my "writing" sweater. Meaning, it hangs on the back of my writing chair, and when I get cold while typing, I wear it.
And somehow, I feel more "at home" in the buffalo sweater, because, well, I think that's just what heritage does.
My dad loves Kansas, and I love Kansas because he taught me how.
The Kansas plains—and buffalo—will always have a special place in my heart.
Do you have a "buffalo sweater"? Something that makes you warm and cozy and think of good people that came to this earth before you?
Hope you're having a Happy Thursday everybody!
