Default Come meet the Greyhounds!

*Gentile Breed

That's a relief. One Jewish Princess dog is enough for me. Max is a
Baptist.
Greyhounds are one of those "love it, but could never own it" breeds for me.
The off leash thing - on the other hand, they are so soft and nice to pet.

I would guess you were seeing entrants for this:

That looks right. I really couldn't believe all the classic cars. I pulled
into a gas station up by clear lake, one with 12 pumps for cars (more for
trucks), and I was the only non-classic car tanking it up.

Thankfully, I was nowhere near the Interstates on that holiday. Safe
and snug in my itty country outpost ;-) Great town fireworks and lots
of family.


Sounds grand.

Chad

I'm in the East and towards the middle of Iowa if that makes sense.
Oxford Jct. is about 30+ miles from anywhere..to the NW Cedar Rapids, to
the SE..the Quad Cities , Maquoketa isn't too far away nor is Tipton.

I'm originally from Charlotte.. horse country! Then we moved to the
Quad Cities (say from 2nd grade to HS graduation) but some of us managed
to move out and away from the nasty big city ;-) OJ is my oldest sis'
hubby's hometown.. so everyone is related and everyone knows me as "so
and so's sister". Someday it will be "The MillRats' Mom". I can just
see my 3 and all their cousins terrorizing the countryside once old
enough ;-)

OJ is a mile away... just close enough to walk to yet still be in the
country. The Wapsi River is just a block away, close enough to see from
my kitchen window but, since we're on a hill, we'll never flood.

Zelda is sun bathing right now. Lying on the front stoop and soaking up
the sun after what seems like months of rain. Last weeknd we took her
swimming at the river and I have a bunch of pix of her. I take more of
her than of my boys! Maybe later today I'll be able to share them.

Sure. I went to college at Grinnell.
Cool.

And I grew up in southeast Iowa - born in Burlington and lived in the dinky
little town of Mediapolis (pop 1,500). Went to Iowa State for my
undergraduate degree.

I was just through your (Misty's) neck of the woods when we drove from
Burlington to Stockholm, WI. And Chad, I can't remember if I told you I
have a good friend who lives in Cumberland, Iowa - just SE of Atlantic.

I had a HS Journalism teacher who came from Mediapolis! Karen...?? She
got married during the school year.. so either her Maiden name was
Burgess or that's her married name now... I think.. HS was a few years
ago g

We love heading to Burlington ... Lake Geode is down that way! We've
spent many a fine afternoon walking the creek for geodes. Not to
mention Burlington Speedway!
