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

Is it me or has this been a brutal winter? Ditto of last week! We did get about 6 inches of snow followed by 30 below zero temps. A typical winter in the Northwoods. The snowmobilers were here. The weekend was decent. Next weekend should be much of the same.

I was in Madison for a few days for Legislative Days for the Tavern League of Wisconsin. We were lobbying for small business's rights. There were over 1000 people representing the Tavern League. Our voices are always strongly listened too. Of course the smoking ban is a top issue. It is going to happen. I am just not sure in what magnitude and when. If you are a Tavern Owner please support the Tavern League. Contact me if you'd like more information or to join.

Scottie was busy this week preparing for his numerous home shows he has coming up. Check out his website
You never know when you may need his services. No pun intended. We miss you!

Prayers continue for Jan and family as she is still trying to get well. Jan has suffered one setback after the next but is relatively comfortable. Who wouldn't be when you have Jenneane taken care of you :-) Jenneane is her caregiver and she needs our support and BIG HUGS as well.
My prayers to LeeAnn and her family as her niece was brutally murdered.
Linda Kofal is recovering at Golden Living home she broke her knee cap. Our get well wishes to her. I want to wish Ralph Dewitt get well wishes as he had hip surgery. I hope your out dancing soon! Dan Archambeau is coming along after his freaky accident on Dec 1. Mrs. Cook June is back slaving away at breakfast we sure missed you! A get well wish for Sweetie Petey as he is having some shoulder problems. Sorry Petey I lost all four games at pool.

Bowling was good as usual. It's always fun when you win. We won all 3 games again! We were also participating in team event for the city tournament. We should have done fairly well. I did bowl my average 2 out of 3 games not too bad!

Drum lessons continue for Elliott. He seems to really enjoy it! He also is loving the Basketball but he had his last game on Friday night. We stayed and watched the last regular season high school boys basketball game. They will play LCO on Tuesday night at 7. If they win (which the should) they play Thursday night at home at 7 pm. Good luck Jacks. Janie's team lost at sectionals in a close game to Siren. Darn, they had a very good team.

As I mentioned I was Sweety Petey this week at pool. Ken won all four games--lucky him. We will have some rule changes next year.....right Ken? Just teasing. Thanks to all the subs that help out during the year.

Our annual 9 ball pool tournament will be held Saturday April 25. We always have a great time!

Until next week have a great week....catch you all later.
