My Hometown

Larchwood, IA is in the Northwest corner of Iowa.  This past summer Dad and I were in the Larchwood Family Days parade in his 1918 Paige touring car.  Here's a view at the start of the parade.  Lots of memories in this scene.  The old bank, pool hall, the old Trophy Case Bar, a former grocery store, the post office, the Corner...  All these businesses have changed since I lived in the area (except the post office), but I still love the memories seeing them creates.  You CAN go home again; whether it's looking at photos, reading a story, hearing a familiar voice or walking down a street.  May you take that trip again soon.
