Morning everyone…well I’m glad to be home again!
Seems the older I get the more effort I have to put into going away for a few days. I guess I make it that way on myself though because even though it’s for 2 and a half days I take everything I own with me! You understand that I’m sure….just can’t survive if I don’t have this or that and usually come back home and haven’t touched nearly any of it!
No computer or internet service up there so it was a long couple days.
We headed out very early Sunday morning for Madison, WI for the Market Square Wholesale Cash & Carry show and had a bit of success there finding some things.
Plus I found the shoo-fly screens I’ve been wanting. I bought 4 of them because I have 3 here already.
More battery candles in stock now too! These are selling fast on our site. I wasn’t sure how they would sell at the beginning but wow people love them. I had a lady from Paris France purchase 6 of them 2 weeks ago. Cool!!!!
We headed on up I-90 to my Brother and Sister In-Laws place right after the show and got there around noon. And from there all I can say is it was an ‘EATING FEST’ – seems when we get together that’s all we do…but I’m not complaining because the places we went to were delicious.
My brother has been working on his pond for a few years now and re-did the entire thing this past Spring. The water is low at the moment but you can still see how pretty is is – earlier this season the flowers were just so full and gorgeous – so go take a peek. They live in Adams, WI on 5 acres in the woods and I just love going up there…very peaceful.
I took a few pictures of the Dells area – it’s just a huge town of water parks, roller coasters and junk stores and the ever popular ‘Duck Boats’ that tour up and down the Wisconsin River.
Tommy Bartlett Show is the biggie in the Dells – it was shut down all of last year because of the flooding and the lake that they performed on ran dry from areas breached and the water just left! Now it has been restored and the show is up and running again.
Here’s something I didn’t know the Windows Live Writer did….it does an Album…wow, the things this doesn’t do!
We got home yesterday afternoon very tired and stressed – the three hour ride from their house was totally in a downpour of rain…sometimes you couldn’t see the next lane of traffic and the water was standing deep in spots – very stressful. Normally one would drive out of something like that but it continued till way after we arrived home. It was a much need rain though. Been over 3 weeks!
Guess this turned into a book today…sorry!
P.S. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL YOUR HELP IN FINDING THE CANDLE HOLDER CUPS….MY BROTHER FOUND SOMEONE WHO CAN MAKE THEM FOR US. Yeahhhhh!!!
WE’RE HOPING WE CAN GET HIM TO CONTINUE MAKING THEM FOR US AND THEN I CAN OFFER THEM TO THOSE OUT THERE LOOKING FOR THEM….KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED.
