Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Fifty Years Ago Today . . .

Fifty Years Ago Today . . . 



This twenty year old


 Landed in Saigon
And then helicoptered to

 Nha Trang Air Force Base







Which would be his home for three years


Nha Trang situated on the South China Sea


The hills across from the base . . . where water buffalo roamed during the day
Where Viet Cong fire came from at night.

And he brought home pictures of his time there . . . 











And he was one of the lucky ones . . . 
He came home!
