Canada Here We Come!

Today I packed all the goodies for our Nova Scotia tour that departs this Saturday, August 1st. I am getting excited to get on the road and tour the fabulous Maritime Provinces once again. 17 days filled with sunshine, coastline, and NO waistline!! With all the snacks I just packed (thank goodness for Costco) we definitely won't be worried about a pound or two.... But before Saturday we must visit the Fireside tomorrow and the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday (hope last nights whooping won't repeat itself). I made it through the day ALMOST without anyone rubbing in another candle on the birthday cake. Thanks Linda and Barb...you sure know how to make a girl feel OLD. Well gotta go...Jim is planning a nice dinner I'm sure.

Grand Opening!!

WOW did our travelers come out in full force on June 23rd! The day was a HUGE success even though temperatures climbed into the 90's. Yes, I know that was the first and last day of summer here in Wisconsin. But no complaints about the warm weather...just the fact that we ran out of hot dogs. No way could we predict over 350 of you would come and visit, let alone for lunch. But we managed to feed everyone and the best part of the day was that we pulled off the BIRTHDAY surprise for Gloria. We got the birthday banner hung, grandchildren flown home, and her siblings here on time. What a feat. Jerry Voelker came down from Green Bay and provided our guests with wonderful polka music while several took to the dance floor (or garage floor ) for an afternoon of food, fun, and fellowship. Now that we are settled in our new "home" has provided us with an enormous amount of exposure. Tours are filling up and new people stopping in everyday. Thank you to all our travelers who came out for the celebration and if you couldn't make it, stop in anytime...Monday - Friday 8:30 - 4:30. Call first and we'll put the coffee on!
