Janice Marie and Alan's Visits to Iowa
We visit Iowa (a.k.a. The Holy Land) each year. This year we visited in August so that we could also attend the wedding of one of Alan's Nephews.

|We enjoyed a delightful Dinner at the Machine Shed which is|

Tractor sells at well over $600,000.00

Concert" at the Iowa State Fair. The next picture shows to young
Iowa citizens also enjoying the Tribute Concert.
|On our way to Northeast Iowa, specifically Clayton|
County, we dined at Taylors Maid-Rite in
