This card of piles of corn has taken longer than usual to arrive at its destination.  Corn is one of the major crops of my home state of Indiana.  There is even a well-known slogan/jingle for Indiana Beach (a Monticello, Indiana amusement park) which says "There's more than corn in Indiana . . . At Indiana Beach!"

I'm featuring it because this is currently the card that has taken the longest amount of time to get to its destination at 175 days.
