Economy, Indiana..Firewood, Rabbits and Corn and Corn and Corn....

Here I am in Economy, Indiana.  It is just Northeast of Indianapolis.  Most definitely Corn Country.  The only businesses I saw as I passed through was a place that sold firewood ("Firewood For Sale: Govt Approved") and one that advertised "Rabbits for Sale".

Here is my daughter, Laura, standing at the edge of a field.  Think it is about harvesting time.
