KS Posted in Kansas December 20, 2015 by Annie 11 Things That Make People From Small Town Kansas The Best People I know I may be a tad biased, but… I happen to think that people from small town Kansas are some of the best people you’ll ever meet. Here’s why: 1. We learned from a young age to be good (or the entire town would know). Flickr/Viewminder That, or we learned how to be really sneaky... 2. We know where to find the best sunrises...

Small-town Kansans KNOW what real, made-from-scratch foods tastes like. Beethoven's #9 Restaurant Facebook Has anyone else noticed that the BEST foods come from small town Kansas diners? 6. We learned from a young age to respect our elders. Flickr/Pedro Ribeiro Simões Has anyone else noticed that that's hard to come by these days? 7. Natives of small-town Kansas learn to appreciate the little things in life at a young age. Flickr/Josh Liba "This weekend, we're going to Salina to shop and to see a movie!" (An actual Annie Sandmeier quote.) 8. We can cook. Flickr/gaspar shieh Well, some of us can... It comes from our long line of German blood! 9. We understand and appreciate the fact that Kansas agriculture feeds the world. Flickr/Brian McGuirk Chances are your parents, aunt and uncle, friend's family, or grandparents are Kansas farmers who work hard year round to grow their crop. 10. We are more well rounded than most.

Flickr/David Bruce Whether it was our best friend or the losing Chiefs, we would never leave their side! **Note: Yes, the Chiefs play on the KC MO side, but the fan base is primarily Kansas.** What would you add to this list?
