Udderly ridiculous sites

The best thing about travel is the unusual things you come across. I had to pull off the highway and drive back a small road because I caught a glimpse of this in passing. Carol Ane missed it and was upset that I was getting off the highway, it would delay our trip. But […]

Kids in Wisconsin are tough!

So how many of you have kids that would be in their bathing suits dancing in the snow? It is COLD! The snow storm is gone but with the wind chill it is below zero! And to make matters worse, IT’S 55 DEGREES IN FOXBORO!!! Not fair not fair. Greg is seriously the bad […]

We drove through Chicago. We are brave. By we, I mean Paul. We visited the Garfield Park Conservatory, where the wedding will be held. (Picture to follow.) And then, we went up along Shore-line Drive – until Paul cried “Uncle” and got back on the highway. There is something very likable about Chicago, and […]
