Trip to Des Moines

Back home in the middle of the night. We went to Des Moines today and visited Loyce's father in the retirement home. This is a nice place that is in the old posh area of Des Moines. Many big money folks had mansions in this area of town from the 1920's on to today.

These are old big stately homes that are 70 to 100 years old. This takes a certain mind set to live in these dusty old joints. But the retirement home is right on Grand Avenue in the middle of the area. It is part of the Methodist Conference of Iowa, and LeRoy has served with them for more years than I should report.

Also visiting was her brother Paul, so we spent some time with him as well. With tonight being a trip to When Pigs Fly Barbeque. I have not had time to look up the web site and create a link. Also attending and suggesting the joint, was sister Betsy. She paid too. Can't beat that huh. Thanks Betsy.

So we drove back home this evening arriving at almost midnight. After 450 miles and a full day I am beat, so this will have to end right here.
