Today, August the 4th, day 28, we went to Leavenworth and saw the Federal Penitentiary and the US Military Disciplinary Barracks.

These are the guard buffalo that are on the grounds of the Federal Penitentiary to discourage escape attempts.

We don't have any good pictures of the US Military Disciplinary Barracks.


  1. The federal penitentiary looks beautiful. Did Dad tell you that these institutions were religious? Penitents in one and disciples in the other. He once spent some time in Leavenworth which may explain his return to the faith.
    Are those buffalo wearing their guard badges? What has Lord Droon done with the king's stilts?

  2. And let us not forget the noble cat we used to have who lost a leg defending the kingdom...DAD
