      I was at the 100th in Winterset. We were heading into the cowboy symposium where co-stars and family members talk about working on Duke's films and his life in general. I had to make a "pit stop" in the men's room and when I came back here is A.C. talking to my wife!! What a nice man and very personable. Nice to see people like that in the movie buisness even though they are few and far between.
      Life is hard, its even harder when your stupid!!

      Hello All
      In Winterset there is a drugstore that has an active soda shop with a long J counter and four staff working at once ( busy). Houses with porches were numerous and brick enhanced the character of many of the homes and businesses. Chester, my cousin and I met a family of 4 who were walkabout and they like to hand catch and release Rattlesnake and other snakes. There is a back to the future like Town Square with a very impressive courthouse in the center. Most of all I enjoyed the people who could respect the past and embrace the present in both lifestyle and demeanor. I can not vouch for the rest of Iowa, Winterset however, ROCKS.:thumbs_up:
