It’s like the middle of winter out there.  It was snowing hard earlier, temp 36 (s’pose to be 50), really windy, lots of ice and overcast.  You’d think this was Wisconsin.   But we did enjoy the deer running back-and-forth across the lake.  Rog


Happy 25th (Silver) Anniversary to my Sweet, Lovely Bride, Shirley! April 15th

Shirley knew when she married me I could be a little Goofy, but I can be Dopey, too!

Seriously, those who know us know we’ve been through a lot of love for 25 years that includes for better or worse, richer or poor, sickness and health… we’ve shared it all—’wealth’ comes in many forms.!  Many of you know the feeling…

Shirley brightens my day, no matter what; always cheerful.  She’s a loyal friend and willing to help friends and family.

Love, Rog (AKA Goofy!)

Hats Off to OF Friends of the Arts!

The Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts provided a spectacular, stellar performance by the “Women of Ireland” presentation at the Performing Arts Center in the Oconto Falls high school auditorium Sunday afternoon.  I don’t know where you can find better entertainment without having to drive to Milwaukee or Chicago; the Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts bring it right to our backyard.

Amy Thiel, Karen Lutz, David Polashek and staff should be applauded for their phenomenal research to find groups and troupes on tour to bring in to perform.  Hats off to these folks and the wonderful, wonderful performance by “Women of Ireland” troupe!

The lighting alone was awesome, not to mention the singing, musicians, acoustics, stunning Irish dance that kept us clapping to the beat and the step.  Watch for more performances presented by the Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts—you don’t want to miss them!  Roger

Getting Out, Making the Best of Winter.

I never snowshoed (is that a word?).  But I’ve done a lot of cross county and downhill.  Like cross country, it has to be quiet and serene; not knowing what you’ll sneak up on  These folks enjoying an outing coming to an end this wintry season.
