Our next stop was in Dodge City, Kansas. Yes, it was the town which represented the wild, wild West at that time in the famous TV show Gun Smoke. The reason we went there was, however, because Dean and Maria lived there. They had just built a house by themselves, and, most importantly for our children, their cousins were there. They were then at a very good age to enjoy each other. I do not remember now how long we stayed there. We all certainly enjoyed very much our time together. The pictures below give me a feeling of happiness in my whole body. The enjoyment we had while seeing them together definitely made it one of the most exciting times in our lives. The house in the background was the house Dean and Maria built.
