I can recall going to a factory up in MN, the Federal facility and across the street I could actually straddle the Mississippi River

Sheila- What a nice surprise to have new AR friends find this old blog. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Ed-The factory is still there, running 3 shifts, and yes the river is just to the west. We all enjoy the Mississippi here, as it adds to our "atmosphere".

Gayle-Thanks for the pleasant reminder. I sometimes forget that what has been posted is out there for people to find.
