Glad to hear the Teddy Bears landed the plane successfully. Road freggies are a little more difficult to work in, but not impossible if you can think outside the box a little. I enjoyed a hot bowl of chili while breakfasting at the Waffle ... Read more

Having a Freggie Week . . . and enjoying a waterfall!
Saturday, July 30, 2011      6 comments

This waterfall at Amnicon’s Wisconsin State Park is so named “Now and Then” because this time of year, it’s normally a mere trickle (if anything). By August, it is usually gone! Perhaps this means we’re no longer in drought. ... Read more
