The Lake


By the time you read this, I'll probably already be on the road headed north to Lake Superior. I love the Lake, but of course the Lake loves no one. Case in point: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, which thrills and terrifies me. And in case you were wondering, yes - I know every word to the Gordon Lightfoot song.

But I digress . . . I'm headed up to an area where my family went when I was a little tot. I've attached a photograph here for your enjoyment of my brother and me there ca. 1988. My mom also went there when she was little and my grandparents vacationed there in the 50s. So, it is a special place for me and I can hardly believe that I get to go back.

I will be out of touch for a few days, but back online and posting pretty jewelry in the shop on Monday!

That is such a cute picture, and it amuses me greatly that I probably wasn't born when this shot was taken!

Have a good time! There's nothing like a nostalgia trip. :)

hehe - I didn't Lauren, I didn't! I was being amused at my lack of existence, promise.

Besides there's nothing wrong with being old. Some of the coolest ladies I know are in their 80s lol.

I just discovered your great, great site, so let's hope the gales of November don't come too early (would be just my luck).
