Vacation destination?
https://www.aroundiowa.com/blog/2016/10/...B3afIWcHIU

Hey! Is this Heaven? No, it’s Dyersville.

My sister sent me this link. Oh...the excitement of it all. This is the town where we grew up (for me from 6th grade till my early 20s).

#4 cracks me up. My best friend grew up in half of that house (once a duplex). They were poor - really poor with her father usually in a state institution for alcoholism and her mother rolling her own cigarettes to save money. Now it's a museum.

Also amusing is that the Basilica comes in at number 2...beaten by the Field of Dreams movie site.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

No offense, but that looks like the last place I'd go on vacation Drinking Beverage

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

None taken...I have no plans to go back.

My sister sent the link because she's a smartass. Wink

She bailed from there before she was 18. I would be hard-pressed to say which one of us hated that town the most.

Do you have jet leg after getting back from the fridge?
