Post 698: Happy 148th Birthday, Nebraska! (You don’t look a day over 100!)

I’m a native-born Cornhusker. So are Andy and Dougy. Naturally, on this 148th birthday of our favorite state, we have to whoop it up a little and be thankful no bison herds numbering in the 10s of millions trample through our backyard. Of course, all of that organic, um, “poop” (to use the technical term) would make a great soil amendment for our garden!

The Nebraska Sandhills area is my favorite part of Nebraska, though the Pine Ridge area is pretty fascinating, too!
