Where To Camp??

Well our favorite place to camp through the years
is Devil's Lake State Park, and it's not in such
great shape right now.

Questionable if it will be ready for the Fourth in
two weeks.

Which means more than likely our family will not
be camping that weekend. A little late to get
reservations now.

To some place we want to go anyway.

Any ideas?? What is your favorite place
to camp in state?

My Friend.

Well I am back. Not that you knew I was gone.
My Friend Tom died on the 13th.

When I first heard they had only given him
weeks, I said No Way.

However he went so quickly.

It is best if that was his fate, he was in such pain.

I will remember him as a strong man with a great
sense of humor and an incredible laugh.

He was family to me.

I will miss him.

Everyone Make It Through The Weekend ?

I like storms, I do.

I will sit out on my porch and watch them come in.

However this weekend. I realized, I am really not as brave
as I thought I was.

When that storm came in on Saturday late afternoon, I was
running around trying to make sure everything was tied
down or shut.

I recently got two horses and they were freaking out
running around the outdoor pen, and I think that is
what really scared me, was they say animals sense
bad weather, and this was very different behavior
for them. So then I was scared.

However I got them into the barn (shed) that they share
with the mama kitty and kittens and into their
stalls my dad and brother helped me build.

They were very nervous .

Then the storms last night, there was rotation in that wind.
I have a lot of branches down, one tree came down but
I had been wanting to take it down because it was dead.

I just wonder is it better to leave the horses outside or in
when the weather is bad like that?

At the time I felt better with them in, but then as I was
getting ready for bed, I feared what if it came down
on them if there were straight line winds or a tornado.

The shed is in excellent shape, it's a cleary building and only
five years old.. So it would take quite a wind.

However I just worried.

Tough Kittys

O.K. these baby kittens that I have think they are tough stuff.

They barely have their eyes open and they hiss and spit at me.
How dare they. They have some nerve.

Who do they think makes sure they are o.k. and
makes sure there mommy has enough to eat?

Ungrateful brats.

Cute but ungrateful.

Nosey Neighbor..

We are having quite the discussion at work lately about a co-worker's
nosy neighbor.

This neighbor is driving Ann (my coworker) crazy. Ann has 2 kids, 13&18.
Ann has lived in her neighborhood for 15 years and has always enjoyed it.

However has come to realize over the last year, what a screw ball her neighbor
is. First she starts rumors about people.. She is always watching
what is going on around the neighborhood, which would be fine if it was
well intentioned but it is not.

She starts rumors about who is not paying there bills, whose house is
in foreclosure, how someone paid for something. Who is sleeping
with who.. Like she would know but evidently when this neighbor does not
know the entire story she makes it up.

She claimed the one neighbor put off getting a better job for years
because his wife would not 'let' him.

They know this couple and that was as far from the truth as one
could get.

How someone gets the money they have. Or the things they have.

She talks about her neighbors more particular to both sides of her.
Has told one neighbor the other neighbors house will have to be
gutted it they ever sell it.

Ann has been in the one neighbors house there is nothing wrong with it.

The neighbors have gotten so they all think, know she is a bit nutty.

She is a very negative person. I told Ann it's clear she has nothing
better to do . How sad.

We have told Ann just to keep her kids away from her, she obviously is not
fit to have children around her, as they don't need to here that kind
of stuff.

Other than just ignore her and don't have anything to do with her. She wills
either get the hint or move.

Real Estate License

Well I have decided to do it. I am going to take the course
and then hopefully pass the test. This will be something
that I will do on the side and hopefully have a lot of fun
along the way.

There are also several other things I can do after I
get my license besides sell real estate, so it opens
several doors and I think that is exciting.

A Place For All Creatures/Wisconsin Rescue's

I heard from Lisa and A place for all creatures/Wisconsin Rescues site is being
moved and combined with their website. Very Cool. When it is up and running
completely she said she would let us know. They are out and about quite
a bit this time of year checking out local rescues so they are very busy.

Nice lady she is the one who helped me live trap my mama kitty.
