On Simple Concepts - Part 1

Earlier today, the term "pole shed" came up in a conversation between two homegrown Iowans (as a non-native Iowan, I was eavesdropping). One of these fellows is what you would call a "farm kid."

He spent his formative years (through high school) in rural towns in Iowa; maximum population of any town he lived in during those years was maybe 1,400 and the minimum population was about 350. The other one is a city kid. He lived in probably the best place to get a meth fix in Iowa - one of the "cities" along the Mississippi River side of Iowa. Those river towns in Iowa are great places to get tattoos.


Anyway, the farm kid knew all about pole sheds. He knew what they were. Hell, he probably spent time making out in one in junior high school. But the city slicker didn't.


So I looked up some information on "pole sheds" on the internet. Fascinating topic. Read all about it here. Yes, friends and neighbors, it is true. For $35 (plus shipping and handling), you can own a book called "How to Build a Pole Building."

Iowa river towns are the best. East Coast Iowa is better than West Coast Iowa. There is a big rivalry between the East Coast Iowa Rappers (Burlington, Davenport, Clinton, Ft. Madison, Bettendorf) and the West Coast Iowa Rappers (Sioux City, Council Bluffs).

Looks like you picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines.
