ok.....going to try throwing this out there and see what happens. My Dad was from a small town in Iowa named Cushing. I visited my grandmother there numerous times as a child and have wonderful memories of this wonderful small town. I want my kids to experience what I experienced as a kid, or at least as similar as it can be these days. I would love to rent a home next summer for a month or two, in or around the Cushing or Holstein area. If any one knows of a decent home big enough for three small kids, and 2 adults that would be willing to rent as vacation home I would love to hear from you.

Thanks anyway. I think that it is going to be a very difficult thing to find. I just wish I would have bought my grandmothers home when it was auctioned off years ago. Just not realistic I suppose, but I do really miss the home and the area. I'm sure things aren't as Normal Rockwellish as I remember them , maybe they never where, but I still want my kids to get an idea of what life is like in farm country. Do you know if the hardware store is still there in Cushing? I doubt it. I remember the woman who used to own it was named Minnie, and was my grandmother's friend. We used sit out front of the hardware store and see who was driving into town.
