|Just another day at the American Gothic House.|
|Here they come.|
|Forget the pitchfork and costumes and usual parodies. These cutie pies need no adornment.|
|Not sure what my neighbor would say if she saw the cars on the lawn. Good thing she's gone until spring!|
|Roger and Me. Roger Sitterly of Des Moines organized the day's outing. Besides pre-ordering the pies, he had trivia questions for the MINI drivers to answer and prizes to hand out.|
I may have missed out on the group road trip, but my own MINI Cooper was given center stage in the photo shoot. Always one to stand out from the crowd, mine was the only one with a bike rack on the roof. As for my Oregon plates, I wasn't the only one from out of state. There was another MINI from Virginia, en route to Wisconsin, by way of Iowa. Ending up at the American Gothic House was just another roadside attraction for him. But for me, every day here is a great adventure. Who knows who -- or what -- will turn up next on my doorstep. I can't wait to find out.
|Cute cars, cute house. Life is good.|
