Check out the "$10 off a night
at Wilderness Inn."
Greetings from Barnes. Once again it is like a sportsman's
paradise. Bear hunters, (not beer hunters) (leave it to
Terriann) deer hunters, grouse hunters, fishing enthusiasts,
ATV'ers, Harley riders and fall color watchers. Wow what a
weekend! Not to mention golfers.
I had a busy weekend with much going on! Thanks Bruce and
Doreen for the invite to the lamb roast. It was wonderful
It was nice to see my friends from the Cities finally enjoy a
nice weekend on their Harleys in Barnes. Kristi, I am so glad
you could make it. My heart hurts for you! Lois, you are the
best and so nice to see the gang even if the tour guide (Dale)
wasn't feeling the best, you had a great time. I hope to see
you again soon!
The VFW seemed to do well with their benefit on Saturday. I
did not win anything but many did. The big money was won by
Porky's friend. That's the best I can tell you.
Last week in bowling while I was gone the girls won 2 out of 5
points. This week while I was there I bowled my average 2 out
of 3. I am not sure where the points went. Two of their girls
had not established handicaps yet. I believe we won the first
game for sure.
Way to go Packers...they won an important game so did the
Badgers. The Brewers are trying to beat them Cubbies but it
doesn't look good. Brewers are two games out. Come guys kick
it in! Good Luck Packers this week they play the queens at the
Elliott is quite the salesman as he is collecting money for
bowling for dollars for the Lions Club. He has done a great
job this far. He still has another week left.
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.
