Check out the "$10 off a night at The Wilderness Inn" coupon below!!

Greetings from Barnes. It has been a good week. Busy as usual. The holiday weekend proved to be one of our best. There were many people around. We did enormous amounts of pizzas and had a full house at the Motel. The motel did good this summer. It was full most weekends.

Elliott and I flew to my brother and sister in laws in Indiana for our summer vacation. I am not sure what is going on but air travel is horrendous. Our initial flight was cancelled. We almost missed our connecting flight, the flight attendants were getting prepared to close the cabin and our luggage was lost in Detroit. There really is nothing you can do. A friend of mine's wife was stuck at O'Hare the same day for 32 hours...Argh!!

We sure had a nice time. We went to Cedarpoint amusement park in Ohio. I rode many roller sister in law and Elliott were a bit frightened. We went bowling a few times, miniature golfing a few times, ate at many nice restaurants, clothes shopping for school and we took in a Brewers game My brother and nephew from Milwaukee joined us (they won) Yippee! Go Brewers, they are in first place today in a tight race with St Louis and the Cubs. Go Brewers. Go Badgers, they won last weekend also. Go Packers. They open their season on Sunday.

Thanks Larry and Debbie for a very nice time. They are wonderful hosts. Elliott and I are very thankful to you both. Love you guys.

My parents celebrated their 51 anniversary and my fathers birthday and my mother's birthday this week. I hope you had a great week.

The official end to summer is when Labor day is over. You could not tell with the weather 90 degree days this week. It has been hot and sticky. Golf on Wednesday was very hot! I did ok and then had to go to bowling right after. I bowled fairly well for me I had 2 turkeys. Two weeks left of going from bowling to golf.

Elliott started school last Tuesday. I think he was ready and I believe many parents were ready. He had a great summer.

My condolences to the Bob Wrazidlo family of Iron River, owners of the Other Place, he passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.

To my staff---You guys/gals are the best! I appreciate everyone of you! Keep up the great work. Thanks to everyone that pitches in when needed and while Elliott and I were on vacation.
