Wonderful Wisconsin

Last week’s trip to my home state was the best ever. Everything I did exceeded expectations. I just wish Kelly had been there. Of course, 4 days in July during some of the nicest weather I’ve ever known in that state might be a bit misleading. It’s one thing to talk about Wisconsin winters – Read More

Last Day in Wisconsin

On my last full day in Burlington, I set the Wayback Machine to the late seventies and shared a few memories with friends that I haven’t seen in a l-o-n-g time. I can not say for sure when last this group was in the same place at the same time. My best guess is that Read More

Sad, Mad, Bad

You know, I just have to say this – Jeff deserves better. No headstone? No marker of any kind? What the shit? Clearly, he made many, many bad choices. But I’m pretty sure that I will never laugh as hard as I did with Jeff. I am very sure I will never meet a human Read More

30th Class Reunion

Then of course, there was this class reunion – Burlington High School Class of ’73. Yikes! I’ll admit that I was a bit nervous before the big party. I was afraid that I would not recognize anyone. It turned out that I did recognize about half of the classmates who attended – and most of Read More

Steve and James in Williams Bay

Whew! I have a lot to say about my trip to Wisconsin. Lucky for you, I don’t like to type. I’d rather let my pictures do most of the talking. I will say that my trip was pretty well scripted before I even got on the plane. I had three hours here, exactly four hours Read More

Daydreamin’ About SPAM

As August 12th approaches, I can’t help but think fondly of my lovely friend – SPAM. Why, you ask? Because August 12th and 13th are peak days for the Perseid Meteor Shower, of course! You see, where I come from, SPAM stands for Special People Admiring Meteors. Unfortunately, I’m gonna miss this year’s trip, but Read More

Milwaukee’s Architectural Gem

I guess you all know that I’m from Wisconsin. Unfortunately, I haven’t been back to my home state since March – mainly ‘cuz I don’t travel in my new job. However, this year marks thirty years since I said goodbye to Burlington High School, and I have decided that I’m going to fly back for Read More

Milwaukee County Stadium

While on the subject of cool panoramic photos shot by friends, today’s Shot of the Day comes from my pal Mark Chestnut, who lives in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He took this full 360 degree panorama when Milwaukee’s Miller Park was nearly completed. Look closely, and can just make out the the new park in the background. Read More

Hope Dies

I just learned that my ex-boss and friend for thirty years has Read More

100 years as a Cheesehead

My Grandmother – and avid Green Bay Packer fan – turned 100 years old today! Kelly and I flew to Green Bay to help her celebrate. We saw most of my family. We first visited my sister and brother-in-law at their new home. The next day we drove to Packerland for the party. My Grandmother Read More
