    The Hometown Return

    I grew up in a small town in SW Iowa and drive through occasionally when going to Omaha to visit family. Sad how nearly all the businesses are gone and main street is nearly a ghost town and nearly everone is old. Not sure my class of 32 have ever had a reunion. My wife is from Newton and they...

    Golf Destinations

    I've done Bandon several times when company was paying (good old working days). Great golf but it has gotten crazy expensive. My favorite recent trip was Hilton Head/Bluffton area. Great courses and more affordable. Wisconsin is also a really hot spot for golf packages.

    Retirement Targets

    I retired in 2016 at 63 and started SS the next year. Had a nice 401K and wife had a decent pension from retiring from the Postal Service. We actually have a bigger nest egg now than when we retired and really haven't changed our spending. Very lucky but having a defined pension really makes a...

    *** Official #6 IOWA STATE vs Kansas State Game(Day) Thread ***

    Love what TJ has done but he absolutely can't coach offense. We seem to have nothing except head down and drive into traffic.

    *** #24 Iowa State at Texas Tech (Wed, 6:00) ***

    I think they will bounce back nb Not only not scoring but not helping in really any facet.

    Twister Sister Summary - When the going gets tough, we get tougher.

    She also took over the 3rd quarter and kept us in the game. We flat out lose that game without her.

    *** Official IOWA STATE vs #11 Oklahoma Game(Day) Thread ***

    Love TJ and what he has done but he really needs to figure out an offense..we really look to be the same on that end as the last 2 years. Also, we won't win many getting almost no scoring from Lipsey.

    *** Official IOWA STATE vs Memphis Liberty Bowl Game(Day) Thread ***

    I think Nate S is going to be a good coordinator but his Red Zone offense is so freaking predictable. Also we may have the slowest linebackers in P5.

    Ryan status?

    We sit fairly close to the bench and Emily was very emotional in the handshake line.. I'm sure it is killing her not being able to play. She does coach the hell out of this young group.

    *** Official IOWA STATE vs #12 Texas A&M Game(Day) Thread ***

    This is pretty much the same team we've had the last 2 years with less defensive length. Poor shooting, bad turnovers, and not sure we hit on any of the portal players..and only one of our heralded recruiting class is contributing. At the end of the day is so far we still really lack scoring.

    *** Official VCU vs IOWA STATE Game(Day) Thread ***

    Not convinced he really had an offense philosophy. No field goal in 11 minutes...17 misses in a row.

    Tonight Creighton is playing better when he is sitting.

    Yeah pretty sure the reason Creighton doesn't foul much is they really don't guard.

    ***Iowa State vs. Truman State exhibition (Wednesday 6:30 pm)***

    Brown struggled with her shot in the 1st half but she is going to be really good. Reminds me of Bridget C. and just carries herself like an athletic all around player. Good passing, rebounding, and offensive game.

    Has anyone purchased a new vehicle lately, the prices are off the wall.

    We are currently # 24 on a wait list for a Grand Highlander hybrid at Toyota of DM. Wilson's in Ames says it could be a year as they are only getting 2-3 a month. Won't even discuss price until they have delivery and you basically have to take what color and trim package that shows up. Probably...

    Cytown Update

    And all of them are crazy busy. We moved back to Ames 1 1/2 years ago and live 3 blocks from the south location and none of the doctors were taking new patients. Ended up with a NP at the north satellite location.
