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. www.TLW.org Check it out sometime and see
how strong we really are.

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!
