The things that are good

It is easy to see the unpleasant things about where I live. Small town in the middle of nowhere, not that much to do, 2 1/2 hours from the nearest airport of any size, and the HIGHEST COST OF LIVING in the entire state and probably, at least, two of the neighboring states. On the other hand I get to live where it looks like this:

When I hear people talking about that HORRIBLE drive on the Interstate from Kansas City to Denver and how it is flat with nothing but wheat and corn fields, I have to wonder. Were they not looking out the window? Cause they missed the best part.
