My grandfather was from Iowa.

Came here to Cally-fornyuh in the early 1900s.

Does that make me an honorary Iowan?

(Still have distant relative there, too..........)

I'm typing this in Iowa as we..uh...speak. (darnit)

Nice UserName, Capt. I loved that book. I think it's his best work.

I might be movin' to Cedar Rapids soon.

Does the band Slipknot embarrass you?
They would me. :D

Sometimes I can't even count the things about this state that embarrass me...:(

Aside from having nothing to do, nowhere to go, never being able to find the figures I want, having to be the home of that "Dude Wehre's My Car?" guy, AND having our only elected US President widely blamed for starting the Great Depression, it's a GREAT place to live.

Padawan, I agree with you. Definitely his best novel to date. Thanks.

I live a couple of miles outside of Lawton which is located 7 miles east of Sioux City.

Has anybody been to Milwaukee Weiner shop in Sioux City? This place is great. Their weiners are addictive.

I used to live up in Sioux Falls and some of my earliest memories were driving down to Lake Okoboji. But no, I've never been to your weiner shop.
