Reasons to love Iowa

I realize that on occasion I have poked fun at this great state in which I live, but rest assured that it is all in jest and I can't imagine living anywhere else. I must admit that I sometimes long for the sandy beaches of Cape Cod, or dream about the beautiful mountains and fragrant pine forests where we used to camp in Colorado when I was a child, but there is nothing like the Midwest with it's slow pace of life and warm, friendly, trusting people. I was reminded of this the other day as I drove past my neighbor's unattended sweetcorn stand at the end of their lane. Would this work in L.A. or New York City? I think not!

I see the honor system in use here in California too at roadside stands.

That would definitely not have worked in Atlanta! I moved to SW Iowa from ATL last August, and although I plan to move back east sometime to be closer to family, I will definitely not go back to Atlanta! It will have to be another small town - I love it here!!!

We have someone in our town that does that for eggs. I think it's the rural, small town attitude.

Nancy lol at your comment!
