neighborhood steers

They look so relaxed and peaceful, don't they?

Bay Beach Amusement Park, Green Bay, Wisconsin

Top:  The helicopter rides are a classic ride at the Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay. They must of rebuilt and painted them shiny new colors. My mom and grand baby Elizabeth are on the orange helicopter. 2nd Down:  Baby Lincoln, the other grand baby, gladly holds his ride ticket. My mom is in the background. He kept chewing on it. That's how I know he liked to hold it. 3rd Down:  Elizabeth, 2 1/2 rides the ponies for the first time. She was thrilled, to say the least. 4th Down: This is me. So that makes that photo 43 years old.  The family who owned and operated the pony ride lived down the road from us.  My mom would save carrots and other vegetables so that we could give them treats. This was so cool!

fishing in howards grove, wisconsin

Here's an old tackle box I bought recently at a rummage sale for $3.00.  A steal, I thought.  Below is a 10 year old boy who was catching frogs and supervising our fishing progress.

wisconsin farm, green bay

Here's a shot of my son, Matthew, the day I went to help him with chores.  Using the word help is a stretch because I fed the calves and played with the dog and watched him work.  The old barn here is defunct and holds cows that are too young to milk.

Camping in the middle of a swamp.  Never again will we camp in a swamp. For those of you who think mosquitoes aren't active in 50 degree weather, well, they do. That is the back end of our 1958 Pathfinder camper trailer.  Completely vintage with birch wood layering the interior walls, original appliances and fixtures.

Ramps, Morels, and Aspargus

On our recent camping trip, while scouting for morels (a wildly expensive and hard to find mushroom), we came across a few sprouts of wild aspargus and, after digging up some ramps (a wild and sweet leek) growing on top of a hill, we had a feast!
