You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Today’s weather is completely opposite of yesterday’s. It’s sunny and warm with bright blue sky and big white clouds spread throughout casting shadows on the fields of corn. Driving on the gravel roads from farm to farm is something I could do all day on a day like today.
This morning I was in town and just picked up a couple of items at the store. On my way out I met Rusty and his parents, locals who were checking out the car. I told them my story and they sent me to their pastor who came here from Michigan just over a year ago. He brought me out for a great lunch at a local diner that’s built right into the pharmacy and offered to be my navigator to show me the one bridge I hadn’t been to yet.
On our way he had me stop at his friend’s place, Jerry and Nancy, an older couple who if I’m not mistaken even had a small part in the movie. They invited me to see their backyard. I’m jealous. It’s the first time I’ve seen someone with a mini-golf course in their backyard. He even built a miniature covered bridge over one of the holes.
I’m taking a few minutes to relax, grab a snack, and maybe just sit on a bench around town and see who’s around to talk to.
