Iowa was very, ... well, Iowa-ish.
Somehow The Wife was expecting something much different, and is currently in a far crankier mood that even her usual cranky mood. The trip was completely her idea ... and I still can't see how she didn't "catch the drift" of how things were going to be, even from the minimal "here, read this" stuff she passed along to me.
Anyway, I have 300+ things on my Friends List to plow through, and a benefit cocktail reception at midnight that I'm still contemplating attending. Hope to be wildly conversant with y'all tomorrow.
