"They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom."

Halloween Party at the Dublin


This is one of the things I miss about being on the road. Giving my friends shit in person. I love the Dublin Underground folk and their ball busting nature. For those of you not from the Iowa City vicinity the man on the right is not in costume, it's more of a uniform. Hence the gag.
He may be a Yankee fan from Solon but at least he likes the Replacements so he ain't all bad. The t-shirt on the left reads, My Other Car is a Fiero. Another inside joke.

I am currently working on a glass of screw top Big House Red from Trader Joe's (we need one of these in Iowa) and watching Field of Dreams on HBO , which would not be a bad night if I was not so far from home. It seems the fates and this film are conspiring to make me homesick for Iowa, my family and friends, and back East simultaneously. It's always "back East" for some reason.

I can't believe you just revealed on here that the Meister was from Solon. Aren't you afraid he's gonna kick your ass for that?

The Brown family used to own a Fiero in 1984 when the one who's name starts with a C. was my boss. He gave me a ride home from work in it once. What's the inside joke about the Fiero?

I never knew that you had to work for C... too small a world and I won't compare notes here. B's other wheels besides his hog has been that car...

Oh yeah, and I had the biggest crush on C. when I was 18 too.
