The Wild, Wild, West.

Sunday July 11th: We went to church with the the McCance family. They have a great sense of humor and we thank them for taking such good care of us. After church there was a pot luck lunch and we gave a presentation.

Monday July 12th: This part of Iowa had bad luck years ago. Near Adair was the first train robbery in the West by Jesse James and his gang in 1873 (see picture). I also saw the bank that Bonnie and Clyde robbed in 1934. Before that had happened, near Dexter, was a near death shoot out of Bonnie and Clyde and the police.I did like the welcome sign in the town of Stuart, "Home of 1600 good eggs, and a few stinkers."

I rode 75 miles to our friends near Des Moines, Tom and Cindy Bugg. They are the only "Buggs" that we like (Get it?, "bugs."). We knew them when we both lived near Valley Forge, PA.

Tuesday July 13th: Channel 13 TV sent a camera/reporter right out to where we were staying to interview us. They ran our story on the 5, 6, and 10 PM news on TV!
