The unfortunate mashup of my love for outhouses and my disdain for the comedic stylings of Daniel Whitney.

There is one more collection of pictures from this road trip in the hopper.

  1. I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time in Galva – my great-grandma lived there, and she and my grandma are both buried there. (Grandpa also has a plot there.)

    Great-Grandma used to work at the grocery store that closed some number of years ago. She was one of many residents who didn’t drive at all – it left a food desert for those lower income residents with no transportation. (Fortunately it happened after she moved.) There are so many statistics that are interesting that your sign project has made me think about.

  2. Food desert. In case you hadn’t heard, Ogden won’t be one any longer. They are getting a Fareway.

    I can’t say I had heard of Galva before I went there. Is it as “friendly” as they advertise?

  3. I am REALLY excited for Ogden to hear that. Do I understand that Ogden is building or buying the building, and then giving it to Fareway to open a store? However it’s happening, that’s really good news for not only Ogden, but Pilot Mound, Beaver, Fraser… there are lots of tiny little towns around there. I’m sure most of the little ones go to Boone, but it helps to have proximity.

    I always felt welcomed! BUT, I think Pattersons (my great-grandma’s maiden name) numbered about 27% of the town at the time, so I think being related to the entirety probably helped.
