Free, men’s Oskgosh overalls, size 56, never worn, call…
I read this ad in the Keota Eagle shortly before pushing off for Oskaloosa on a dreary misty morning.
I always make it a point to read the local newspapers while on the road and have found some gems over the years. My favorite was one that read, “found $300 in the bank depository without a deposit slip call to tell us who you are.”
The ads exemplify one of the things I love about our bicycling trips; the people. Not only is it interesting to talk to someone new but we’ve received so much kindness from strangers it’s amazing.
Every year I try to make at least one pilgrimage to my husband’s hometown in northwest Iowa. There are friends and family there, and a little brick house that has been in the family for many generations since they arrived in Graettinger from Oklahoma in the ’20s. Not far from the Minnesota border, there are several lovely glacial lakes within a few minutes’ drive from the town. The soil is black and rich– some of the best farm land in the world– fields of corn and beans stretch, lush and healthy, for miles.

TIFFIN– It may be rough sailing for the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers as the varsity volleyball season gets underway without Brian Bronzynski at the helm.
Bronzynski was relieved of his coaching duties earlier this year after his teaching position was cut, and he was told the CCA district would not offer him the coaching contract without a teaching position. This was in the wake of his wife Karla being diagnosed with cancer, and Bronzynski taking time away from school to be with her during treatment.
