rainThe Great Lake State is so greeeeen this summer. I mean the color, not necessarily an ecological trend. Just abundant green vegetation everywhere. Cattails upon cattails upon cattails everywhere. Yay for wetlands. So gorgeous.

I had a passenger today. My cuzzint Jay and I both took photos of the Big Mac as we were crossing it. Actually, she took the pitcher from my phone because I canNOT drive stick and do anything with my phone. I posted a photo (don’t worry, we were stopped at the rest area immediately north of the bridge) and tagged Jay and she posted a photo (from her phone) and tagged me. So much fun and I loved having a beloved cousin as a companion for the long drive.

It wasn’t exactly a beach day when I got here (see the pitcher) but the storms had subsided a bit by the late afternoon and it was so much fun to have a big crew of Fins sitting down on the beach watching botes and bantering with another big crew of Fins (and their loverly dogs) as they walked back and forth.

This afternoon reminded me of the old days when we all congregated on the beach every single day that we possibly could. In recent years, I have spent way too much time down there totally alone and missing Radical Betty schlepping her own chair and a basket of beer down in the late afternoon.

I am outta steam at this point but I will leave you with this green song that I remember hearing whenever my grandaddy took the whole fam (Sault Ste. Siberia part of the fam anyway) to the Holiday Inn for dinner. Not the Holiday Inn that y’all know.

It’s all okay. We’re going on and love you all. -KW.

    Hi Jay!! It is back in the 80s here and feels good. We are not so green this year due to all the hot weather and sun, in spite of our nickname of The Evergreen State. 🙂

    Chicken dinners at the Holiday Inn. I remember. Hi Jay. Hi Anne. Hope to see you on the beach.

    > Paulette, I borrowed your book on the Greenfell hooked rugs. I’ll bring it back in a few days, but Dan is here, and I thought he might be interested in the designs.
