It is amazing what a little retail therapy, sightseeing, cooler weather and Aleve do for a person. I found a quilt shop, G purchased some excellent dark beer and K has had a lot of green fields to chase his ball. Last night we were in Winterset, Iowa, John Wayne's birthplace (did you know he weighed 13 lbs. at birth?). It is also where the "Bridges of Madison County" was filmed.
