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!
