No, I’m not leaving the blogosphere, but I am taking a little vacation back home to Iowa, so if you’ve ever wondered what the middle of nowhere looks like, you’re about to find out. Starting next week, I will be writing a series of posts called, “Notes from the Middle of Nowhere.” I’ll be visiting all the hot spots in and around Clarinda, Iowa. My mom said that there is a Sub-Way in town, and I can’t wait to visit the town’s old state mental hospital. And to top it all off, I’m going to be in Clarinda during the Glenn Miller Festival. I told you that this is going to be fun. Trust me. Do I hear snoring? Wake up! I’m telling you that this is going to be entertaining. I’ll have my camera with me, so you can see all of the famous Iowa landmarks, too. I hope the weather cooperates. It’s storm season in the Midwest, and I’m traveling to a part of Iowa that is nestled away in Tornado Alley.

I hope I don’t end up in Oz, but I’m packing my ruby slippers just in case.

Road Trip! Stay tuned, and enjoy your weekend.
