Fun!

It the time of year when every store starts having their Christmas open house. This last weekend we went to the open house at The 13th Colony. It is a great store on the south end of Minocqua with so many old fashioned Christmas decorations. It is a really fun place to shop.  And a fun way to welcome us there:

Bad Bones BBQ

We have a new business in town called BAD BONES BBQ!  They cook outside in a wood cooker and serve pulled pork sandwiches either inside or outside on picnic tables.  We tried it for the first time after one of our customers raved about it.  They were right it is delicious! It is down town Minocqua, one block west of Pole Cat & Lace.  The smells outside make you want to stop and it is worth it!

Northwoods Wildlife Center

One of the families staying here at the resort visited The Northwoods Wildlife Center last week.  They were told that they had 5 small bears and they were running out of food for them.  So when they came back their daughter Kyrea  asked me if she could catch some small fish and take into the Wildlife center for the bears. So the next day all the kids were busy catching fish until they almost filled a bucket and took them in.  Here is a picture of the kids, Sierra, Teagan, Dad Brad, Kyrea and Mazzie at the Wildlife Center with 150 fish, Kyrea and a volunteer at the Center and one of the bears swimming.  The bears are in a back area and you can only see them by camera in the Center. Great job Kids!!!!!

A Great Salad Luncheon!

A couple of our customers, a couple of my neighbors and I enjoyed our neighborhood churches’ Salad Luncheon this past week.  There were so many good salads and desserts that we could have filled a plate twice.  It is always a delicious time!
