Okay... so I just *had* to stop in the scrapbooking store we stumbled upon and buy something because I mean, I was in New Ulm.
The natives really are bend over backwards, nice to the point that you wonder what's wrong with them. LOL (And I say natives because there was a Christmas festival thing going on today and not all the people we bumped into shopping were that nice. But the waitresses, store workers, etc.... wowie wow.) They even opened up a restaurant 10 minutes early for us, after a group of ladies went out of their way to hunt down the owner for us. We were fine waiting... but they would hear none of it.
