The Pearly Gates

No, it's not heaven, not even Iowa. Remember the line from "Field of Dreams"? The picture was taken by the chamber of commerce in St. Peter, MN. Friend Barb pointed it out to us and we had to have our picture taken. Her family said it was build after being promoted by a gentlement from St. Peterwhose name is Mr. Dumdie but was called "dumbguy" by people who didn't approve of spending public money on this gate. I have to admit I kind of like it. I am a fan of strange public edifices that appear in "Roadside Attraction" books. I probably would not be a fan if I had to pay for it with my taxes. Cute, though--St. Peter's Pearly Gates.
