February 27th

Food for Thought

It seems I've made more than my share of trips to town this winter, what with meetings, doctor appointments, grocery shopping and picking up those prescriptions. Snow and ice have forced me to keep my eyes pretty much glued to the road, so I haven't paid much attention to the scenery. What's to look at, anyway, except more snow and ice? A few days ago, though, I was driving between Solon and Iowa City on Highway 1, in no particular hurry and enjoying the sunshine for a change, which had me feeling almost spring-like. I didn't like what I saw.
