If I am not booked at a festival in Tennessee, we might try to make this, since Ohio is just a skip away. Sounds great, if we show I ll be the one with a fiddle in hand.

Can't say for sure Jim, we hit a little snag tonight in our negotiations. But will let you know when it's all said and done.

Yes, but with that toxic waste site you were camped in you couldn't give anything away. What caused all that toxicity? Some imported grain based beverage from InBev? The origin might be the southern portion of the Northern Hemisphere.

The FBI is looking for the guy visible in this photo as the one responsible for dumping toxic chemicals into my site. Does he look familiar?

Up here we dont need a wall. With the tow boats in the river and a 7 mile an hour current in the middle, all they need to do is monitor the bridges. If you can swim that creek between Illinois and Iowa we will let you in and give you a swimming scholarship at the University of Iowa. Same goes for Nebraskans on the West coast. When I was a kid, one of my teachers
told us that Iowa was growing to the degree that we would soon rate 8 representatives in Congress as we had 7 at the time. Weve grown so much and so fast that we now have 4.
We have more ghost towns than Colorado. 560 School districts have gone to 345 in my time and we could probably do with 50 or 75 less. States have slogans. A while back ours was
Iowa, a place to grow! When the wags got through with it the slogan became
Iowa, A place to grow......old!

Hey Dave, perhaps those Nebraskans can't make it over the Missouri River, but what about those pesky South Dakotans, that Big Sioux River doesn't look too big to swim

Now we're off topic we should only be talking about the Mississippi, where we love to camp right beside the river.
