Tomorrow should be an interesting day.
The remains of eight Iowa veterans are being relocated from Knoxville, IA to the VA cemetery in Van Meter, IA. A group of us are gonna head down there to escort the procession.
It’s a good 240 miles to Knoxville. They want us there by 11 a.m. Needless to say, we’ll be leaving early. It looks like we’re going to be VERY lucky with the weather — this time of year in Iowa the normal high temperature is about 65 degrees, and it’s generally rainy. But tomorrow’s supposed to be about 80 or 82 degrees and sunny! Perfect for a bike trip.
I just wish it wasn’t for such a somber occasion…
