The Girls Of Adel
37 down, 328 to go. In Des Moines.
Here are two of the gals who work there - Shelly is in purple and Michelle in white.
Shelly: "I hiked the Pacific Coast Trail this summer. I love the Sierra's. Some of the scenery I saw was - I can't even describe how incredibly beautiful it was."
Michelle: "I used to be the manager at a tattoo parlor and so when the artists got bored, they'd work on me. Now I work here as a manager and life coach to help the developmentally disabled that we employ so they can learn job skills."
Very happy, productive, friendly ladies. They brightened our day in Adel.
I stopped by a local bookstore called Beaverdale Books - they were happy to consign three of the books.
The rain finally stopped but the rivers are about to burst. Temperatures in the 30's tonight. Why don't I just head south? They have roads and I have wheels. Hmmmm.....
Des Moines again tomorrow.
