Thanks...if you can think of anywhere else, we can see one or two a day the 18th and then are going to Campo de Bello on Friday evening but will want to visit one during the day.

There are a bunch of wineries in the area. W ollersheim is beautiful.

We're going on July 18-19th with the wine club.  Gregg and I are going two days early to see the area.  Would love some winery recommendations/locations!

Sandy, when do you go to Mineral Point. My daughter lives close in Mazomanie ,,really close to wollersheim winery and distillery.

Hello All...we got back last night from our 11 days in Norway (it was a cruise so 3 of those days were "sea" days).  It's a most beautiful country.  Large ship cruising is not our favorite mode of travel but sometimes that's the only way to get somewhere.  We cruised across the Arctic circle and saw the midnight sun (it didn't set for 3 days; was just as bright at midnight as it was at noon. I'm glad to be home and we'll stay put until mid-September except for a short trip with our wine club to Mineral Point, Wisconsin.   That's only 3 1/2 hours from here; piece of cake compared to those icky long plane trips!  In Sept. we take another cruise to coastal Canada, ending up going down the East coast of the US. 

Has anyone done the exploding pineapple block?  Much easier than doing all those strips and trimming each one up.  I found a book that has all the patterns. 

 I've had a front loader for about 10 years...a Whirlpool...with no major problems. I love it.

I bet your contractor could easily come up with a way to make something like that with a quick trip to Menards.  I don't think it would cost all that much.

Hubby has been in Canada fishing all week, he comes back tomorrow morning. Sounds like they had very good luck.  I've been just kind of bumming around at home, not actually accomplishing much.  The county fair started Wednesday so I went with a friend to the grandstand events.  Probably wouldn't have but she wanted to see her granddaughter drive in the "Night of Destruction".  The rodeo last night was actually pretty good. Tonight is Maddie Poppe and Caleb Hutchinson.  We will see what the weather is before I decide if I want to go.  Parking is at a premium on a normal night, it could be crazy tonight.  

This morning I'm going to get a hair cut and pedicure. Then my aunt and I are going to go shopping and out for lunch.

Stay safe out there today, sounds like the weather could get dicey in some areas.

Yum!  My sweet neighbor just brought me Twisters from Danes Dairy, the local ice cream stand.  They are like the DQ blizzards but even better!  She helps the owner by opening and closing for her and sometimes brings me treats since I often rescue her doggie who doesn’t like to be home alone.  Her dog and my Jasmine are friends so I often bring her over here when she’s out howling - win-win for us both.   Lol.
