Two more days of work, 12 hours in the car Wednesday, most of trip through--sigh--Nebraska, and I'll be in Iowa for almost a week. I'd really like to be able to visit all my friends, but I'll just have to settle for a representative sampling at the wedding.
I'm a Knight of Columbus now. The first degree ceremony was Thursday in Fort Collins. I met one guy formally from Spencer and another who thinks that Iowa is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
These aren't the only Iowa connections I've found. I run into former Iowans all the time, including a couple from church that are originally from northeast Iowa.
I guess when people leave Iowa they come to Colorado.
