Grandma Jean MOVES!!!! August 23, 2015

 This is an "after" picture of the new apartment.  It looks pretty good.  (Grandma Jean on the left and her sister, Mary, on the right.)
 The bedroom in mid-finish, but looking cozy with pictures on the wall.
 The 'before' picture of the living area.
The 'after' picture from a different angle to show the kitchen and new refrigerator.  I'm sure it will be an adjustment, but much easier to maintain (and get around) than that big, OLD house of hers!

A tree topples in Des Moines... July 24, 2014

 Even though they didn't get any rain, a storm was close and the wind came up suddenly about noon today and this tree uprooted in my mom's yard and fell against the fence and her neighbor's house.
This view is from the fence between houses, where the tree fell and covers the back of the neighbor's house.

Webster City, Iowa, Welcomes R.A.G.B.R.A.I. Riders! July 21, 2015

 People come from all over the world to ride their bikes across Iowa together for one week in July for the past 43 years.  (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa)
About 15,000 bikers make their way on the designated route, and this year one of the towns they rode through was just a little north of our house.
 Food stands and entertainment were available as well as some shade and encouragement from the locals.
 If I ever go on this ride, this would be my choice.  (The back seat rider wasn't pedaling much of the time and it looked easier on the rear end!)
Not sure why this skeleton is taking the back seat on this tandem, but it was interesting.
