Sweet

October 9, 2012

My childhood friend, Robin Harrington, finally ventured from Maryland to visit me in Iowa last weekend. She expected our farm to be isolated from civilization, but found out we can get to a grocery store and movie theatre in five minutes. We had front row seats to see Les Miserables at the Civic Center -- a great show -- but the most fun we had was digging sweet potatoes in my garden. Take a look at the size of this one (and the shape). Robin decided that she loves Iowa and can see why I live here. But she would miss the beach. There is no arguing with that.
