Our first stop today is at Jack’s to help him with the medicine cabinet. His was broken but he scoured around town and found one just like his in the local Habitat for Humanity store. He’s been waiting for some help and Gary was the one. Me, I took a picture or two but then I left to have lunch with Barb, Gary’s father’s girlfriend. We keep in touch through the year and I wanted to see her in person.
Here’s our drive up - must be summer in Iowa with the tractor’s out.
We had a great lunch and the guys had a smashing time putting the medicine cabinet in. Good times all around.
We also journeyed to the local town square where we found this neat statue of Karl King, a nationally-known band master who not only wrote more than 200 marches but led the local band for many years in the Fort Dodge, IA band shell. I don’t remember hearing him and the municipal band but we probably headed over to the band shell on a Sunday afternoon just like everyone else in Fort Dodge. The Fort Dodge claim to fame, even before the Cardiff Giant.
