The sun traces over rows and rows of corn. Their spacing and rhythm read like notes on a phantom piano. Jacki and I are nestled snuggly in the back of the Shamis’ family SUV on our way back from Faulkton, South Dakota.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Faulkton, it’s smack dab in the middle of farming country. Proudly owning the moniker, “The Carousel City”, it’s the hometown of wonderful people like the Bowars (Jacki’s mom’s family). This past week, Jacki and I travelled with her family to Faulkton for a wedding and a perfect weekend getaway from the city. We logged time with some incredible people, flew a four-seater airplane and rode 4-wheelers. Then, while Jacki played with babies and spent time with her relatives, I went out with the men for a day and a half of golf and a day and a half of fishing on the Mississippi. It doesn’t get much better than this!
