This is Wherever Wednesday (#29)

Welcome to This is Wherever Wednesday...where we share those little moments that show the character of the places we live and love: those "This South Dakota, Dallas, Des Moins, and Denmark" moments. Wherever you are, or wherever you've been...we want to hear about those places here!
