ISN Anchor Desk - Pictures
A view from underneath the Enterprise from the original Star Trek series, at the Smithsonian Museum, in 1991.
These next pictures will be from a trip we took to Des Moines in, I think, 1989 or 1990. We were going to a Star Trek convention, only my second one at that time.
The next two images are from Minneapolis, MN. I don't remember what we were doing up there, but we were staying at a Super 8, and I laughed myself silly at the second picture. Hey, I was a kid, what do you expect? :)
And now, some Missouri Valley. I have not lived in Mo Valley since 1995. That was (as of this writing) six years ago. These pictures were old even then. They survived the fire (as did the rest of these pictures) in 1993, so they are from sometime before then. I was standing outside the bar my mom tended work at. No, I don't remember the name, and it doesn't matter, because it's now (at this writing) a Mexican restaurant. The first picture is a view looking West on Main Street. The building on the far right (mostly cut off) is the newspaper from Missouri Valley. Next to that is Hineline Furniture (the pink building). I don't remember what's next, then there is the Doctor's office, which is only one story. Then there's the alley, then People's State Bank, and finally the Rialto Theater. Difficult to make out, isn't it? Imagine not having been in that theater in six years!
The second view is looking East. The Duff's Liquor sign is amusing, considering that it hasn't been there in years. The large empty lot on the left side has for several years now been a low-rise apartment building for the elderly.
And finally, two pictures of me. The first picture is me at graduation, in 1993. Note that this picture was taken less than one month after the fire.
