This is my story!
1. Saturday has come again and with it a trip to Lake Wobegone MN. If you don't already know, Wobegone is the little town that time forgot, and the decades cannot improve. It is said that the women are all strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average. Out on the edge of the prairie, little happens to upset the status quo.
2. Every since they were first married in Wobegon, Marge and Sven Olsen take a drive on Saturday afternoons - just to enjoy the beautiful countryside. Up and down the gently rolling prairie, each week they see the same beautiful Minnesotan scenery, flora and fauna. Other than the gentle transformations as seasons pass, nothing ever really changes.
3. Donald DaVeloper has heard about Lake Woebegone and thought that there was something was missing...condos!! Lakefront properties, 8 townhome-style units to a building, dozens of buildings, all with covenants and homeowner associations and gates to keep the locals out. Donald set out to buy all of the lakefront land that he could lay his hands on. His planned community plan was to completely change the community.
4. Word got out about Donald's scheme. The Olsen's and all of their friends began to fret - how could anyone want to change Lake Wobegone? They had to convince their neighbors not to sell out the town. They asked all of the townies to join them on their weekend drive to remind them what a special place their hometown is. But is it too late?? Don't sell your fine land, he'll make it all bland. It's Donald we're booin', our town he will ruin.
Bring country scenes, farms, nature, lakes ... anything that you'd love to see on a country drive.
