I was on the road again over Memorial Day and while I finally have a few minutes to do so I wanted to post at least a couple of notes and a photo. For family and friends I visited, I’ll share (or have shared) photos elsewhere. And also, thanks mom for the visit home! It was an excellent time. It was great to get back to home territory for just a short weekend visit. Iowa was green and beautiful in late springtime. As you can see by the photo here, it wasn’t long after planting that I visited. The corn was just getting started. It had rained recently and I pulled off highway 61 near Welton to take this photo. They used to say “knee high by the fourth”… but that was even long before my time and by now I have to believe that corn is way higher than knee high.
