Greetings from Barnes. Where it is like sportsman's paradise.
Bear hunters, deer hunters, grouse hunters, fishing
enthusiasts, ATVer's. Wow what a weekend! Not to mention
golfers. We celebrated Nancy's 50th birthday with a bash! She
certainly was surprised. A group of bear hunter's had their
musical instruments so they played and everyone danced. It was
a blast. The golfers have their own version of
dancing...ceiling dancing now that was a trip! Not to mention
the display of fireworks I heard Sunday morning early.
We received about 2 inches of rain on Tuesday. It was severe
Tavern warnings. I hate when that happens. We need all the
moisture we can get.
Monday I spent the day in Hurley. What's the saying Hurley,
Hayward and Hell! I wonder where that phrase came from. Let me
know if anyone knows? I had 8th district caucus meeting for
the WI Tavern league. Our main issue is the smoking ban. We
are fighting hard to keep it out. Also we have elections for
President and will start endorsing presidential elections at
our fall convention. These meetings are tough on a gal like
me! I cannot say enough about the importance of this league.
I did not bowl this week since I had my golf banquet and fun
day. It was a fun day. Jan my partner and I did end up in 2nd
place thanks to her. I had a blast golfing with her. The food
at the banquet was great thanks to Rose Arndt. Also Audrey did
a splendid job on prizes. See ya next year.
The Brewers are hanging tough. They are one game back of the
Cubs. Go brewers. Packers looked good on Sunday they won. Go
Pack. Try again next week Queens. Badgers won again as well.
Go teams go!!!
On Wisconsin once again!
Elliott seems to be settling in at school. He hasn't said too
much. I think he enjoys seeing the other children. He has
another field trip next week. They are camping out at pigeon
lake. He is a busy boy. He is also taking pledges for bowling
for dollars for the Cable Lions club.
Thanks to all who patronized the Barnes Trading Post or
Wilderness Inn on Labor Day. I donate the days sale to
Drummond High School Scholarships in memory of my late husband
Steven Hough. I will be granting one thousand in monies this
spring. Thanks and remember this for next Labor day. I cannot
believe Steve has been gone 9 years already. Wow time flies!

that pitches in when needed.
