Check out the $2.00 off a large pizza coupon below!!

Only a few days left and we can kiss August goodbye. The Holiday weekend is upon us and many will be paying their last summer visit to the Barnes Area. Summer is officially over. Then it becomes my favorite time of year. I seem to love September and October. The weather has been absolutely beautiful. Warm days and cool nights. We received about an inch of rain this past week. We needed it and we need more. Dance dance dance!

My brother and his wife Deb will be visiting for the holiday. It will be very nice to see him. Our father's birthday is also this week. Happy Birthday Pops.

Life has been hectic for most of us. There doesn't seem to be enough time in the days. Business has be good! Who says the Gas prices are hurting? Not in Barnes...yet!

Golf was fun this week of course! My paired up partner Nancy Paulson and I took second in the weeks event at Forest Point not to my avail. I was unable to make Hidden Greens as I had meetings in Manitowoc for the League Leaders of the Tavern League of Wisconsin. Check it out sometime and see how strong we really are.

A big get well to Susie from Burlington as she dislocated her kneecap and has some fractures. I hope all goes well with the orthopedic Doctor. What a way to mess up a girls night out! She is awaiting the results from her MRI to see if she will require surgery.

A big thank you to Rex's relatives from PA and Nebraska, we received a nice care package and letter thanking us for our compassion. Also to Dave and Ellen in Georgia, the pecans are yummy! It is people like this that makes it all worth while. Too many times in life it is all negative feedback. It sure is nice to hear the positive. Thanks again for thinking of us here at the Trading Post and Wilderness Inn. Love you all!

I am the new President of the Ashland Bayfield Tavern League. If any bar owners don't belong and would like to , please contact me! And for those who do and need assistance please call as well.

Once again...I want to thank my staff for a job well done this crazy busy week. We all stuck together and kicked it in. It is nice to know I can count on each of you when I really need you! Your part of the reason The Trading Post is what it is!
