On Hobbies of Other People - Part 1


"Road Sign Photographer." That's what this guy is, so he says. That's a new one on me. But I approve. Especially since, on the pictures appended to his "Fields" roadtrip, I found the picture on the right. Speaking of country roads. That'st a picture of good old exit 182 off Interstate 80. Hey it's good to be back home again. Many's the time I can remember trying to make it to that exit in 40 minutes or less from downtown Des Moines. Didn't get one speeding ticket. Operative ancient (?) wisdom: Better to be Lucky than Good, sometimes.

Ahhh...Highway 146. I know it well. 40 minutes from downtown DM is a good time. It takes me about that from Windsor Heights, and I like to drive fast.

Where in the hell is Wyoming, Iowa.

I am a big city boy, myself. I growed up in CR!

I think I knew a girl from Wyoming Iowa once...but I can't remember her name.

Wyoming Iowa is east of Anamosa on highway 64. It is between Anamosa and Maquoketa. A very quaint little town, narry a stop-light or gas station to be found. They are soon to be enjoying the high life there with a cell tower of their very own...

Nice. That helped me start to remember the girl that I knew. She was hot. She went to Central College in Pella and I rode home with her as far as Iowa City once or twice. I still can't remember her name, but she was a doll.

She would have graduated from highschool in 1983 and she drove a beautiful red camaro. Any ideas???

I'm not FROM there.
I just bring cellular communications to the hayseeds.

Good work on the cell service. That way, if we ever figure out who the hot girl is, we can call her. Then she can reject me a second time.

From what I saw there, she probably still drives the same bitching camaro and has at least doubled in size and is probably toting at least two dirty little kids who ride in the bitching camaro without car seats.

But I was only there for a couple of hours.

Is Wyoming big enough for a Casey's? That seems to be the threshold for "big city" status around these parts.

It never ceases to amaze me how many trashy kids can be packed into the back seat of a rusted out 92 Chevy Lumina.

No Casey's. I think there were only 600 people there if I remember the sign correctly.

How many were there voluntarily? You know, not held captive in the bottom of a well being asked to put lotion on its skin?

I think her name was Laura.

Still can't recall the last name, however.

and I think she actually lived in Wheatland. Never mind.

Crap, I have become PDD.
