Guess again!

We've moved around a lot since the last one, so here we go…

City specific.

First, the state:
There are more recreational boats per capita (1 boat per 6 people) here than any other state...and I hate the water!
The first bus line was opened here and grew to become Greyhound Bus Lines.
The snowmobile was invented here. I'm glad I have a jacket!

Now, the city:
There are more golfers here per capita than any other city in the US...I wonder if they'll let me chase the balls?
In December, 1889, the library in this city is said to be the first to create the Children's Section.
It is possible to live, eat, shop and work in the downtown area without ever going outside. But I can't hold it that long!
The scenes from the opening credits of The Mary Tyler Moore Show were filmed here.
Tonka Trucks were invented just outside the borders of this city. (Nobarkus and Buddy would probably like to know this.) 🙂
The neighbor most closely associated with this city was originally named "Pig's Eye."

Cheers!

My Mother was born there. That's all I'm saying. Nice pic of AJ!

Of course I know this one….. 🙂

The Mary Tyler Moore reference gave it away for me. LOVE all the trivia you include. This is my "learn something new every day" thread!!

I don't know … I'll google Tonka and Mary Tyler Moore.
...or, you could tell me? Tonkaland? 😕

No I'm sorry Vicki, it's Mooreland.

Love that comment about Tonka Truck well fitting. Yes very nice picture of AJ.

I know, we are so excited, they day is already going too slow..come on 1 pm, come on…

Can't give away the answer to the rest of you - I live 20 north of the downtown of this city!
AJsHuman - I thought of asking if you would let us know where you're trucking next (so people and dogs could meet up) but then your fun games wouldn't continue! Love these.

my guess is St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN. Had an uncle that owned a bakery there for years.

I agree with GenJMar - because of the Mary Tyler Moore connection.

Okay, I'll have to start making these tougher. I think everybody got this one. But it's still fun. 😃

There will probably be another coming in a few days…..;)
