Michael,
As a former Iowan transplanted to Florida some 50 years ago, I’m wondering if you’re related to the Morain clan from Jefferson, my old hometown. I do have some email correspondence with Tom Morain, an administrator at Graceland University. Let me know.
PS I rode Ragbrai in ’85,’88, and ’94. Great fun

Yep, Mark. I’m Tom’s second son. Tom grew up in Jefferson, the fourth son of Fred and Lois. Take care, MM.

Hi Micchael — and Mark. He’s my kid,too! Yes, we stayed in your grandma’s house all the years ago, the summer of 1969. Good to make connections.
