The Hooterville Mayor recently made a reference to living in God's Country. I couldn't agree more, this is a great state, great area in the southeastern corner, especially my little town of Wakonda and the surrounding area! Complete strangers will give a biker their car! But that's another story best told by Ride Vermillion.

Anyway, I was thinking of what a great week it has been and how you don't need to live in the big city to find entertainment and good food. For example, Sunday evenng we made the 12 mile trip to Viborg to see the movie "Sex in the City" in the state's oldest movie theatre. While ticket prices recently went up to $5, you can't beat the prices of their concessions. We had a package of Nibs, peanut M&M's, a box of Junior Mints (we were really craving sweets!), and a bottle of water for a grand total of $3.25.

Last night was pizza night at the local Wakonda Hotel & "Pit" - home to chef extraordinaire, Torey. The newlyweds and youngest daughter took us out - we loaded up on 3 varieties: veggie, ham and salami, and the four meat. Very yummy....this will probably upset Tez, but we prefer Torey's pizza to the famous Charlie's pizza. Now if Torey only made that yummy garlic cheese bread they have at Charlie's!

And to top it off, we have great roads for riding bike with low traffic and friendly motorists - it's Nirvana!

As it was in my 18 years in Wakonda...when you get within about 10 miles of Wakonda start waving at every car because (unless they are not from around there) they will be waving at you!

Is the balcony still open in the Lund Theatre? We need to make a Lane Hog road trip to a movie. I keep telling Laura.

I believe Gods' Country is not just a particular location, but an attitude within a location as well.
So, some people take Gods' Country with them as they travel.
People like Cycling Cathy.

Hey, if you guys put together a ride to that wonderful old theatre I would love to come! I still miss the State Theatre in SF.

We should coordinate something with the Biking Vikings from Viborg for a ride and post ride movie and a beer at the Buckhorn, now that sounds like a good idea!

Tez said...

Better than Charlie's?...can that really be true?...hahaha

Only one way to find out, get something coodinated with yer "Biking Vikings" and let us all know.
We will judge. (after we have loads of fun)
So, can't be the weekend of July 26th, or Aug. 2nd, or the Tour de Corn in Mitchell, other than that, I am open???
