A long weekend in Wisconsin

Last weekend we hooked up the "Roadhouse" and visited our friends and family in Appleton. We left Michigan on Thursday, Aug. 23 and returned here to Cedar on the following Wednesday the 29th. Of course since it hadn't rained hardly a smidgen all summer, "Mother Nature" chose to pick our week in Wisconsin to make up for lost rainfall. But, we didn't let a little rain dampen our spirits. We had Lunch with Tony, Becky, & Rose on Friday and spent some time visiting with our friends, the Schemms, Heims, & Eskews from our old neighborhood on Saturday. Here are Teddy, Margi, Joanne & Barb hashing over old times on Heim's deck.
On Monday evening Dick & Jenny Orr hosted a welcome back "Martini Club" cookout for us and we were able to visit with Dick, Jen, Greg, Sue, Tom, Carol, Kate & Wes. I will have to admit that I broke my diet slightly that evening but have since recovered nicely. I also enjoyed my first Martini since my surgery. Cumiden be dammed!! We also were able to spend some time with Mike & Toni between their busy work schedules.
We had a great time and unlike the rainy trip over, the trip back was under fair and sunny skys. Here's a shot of Lake Michigan at a rest stop near the northernmost point of the lake.
