Wisconsin could be the land of 20,000 lakes. Minnesota has 10,000, but Wisconsin's
lakes, streams, and rivers are some of the most beautiful teaming with fish and wildlife.
No wonder so many people here love the water, we have Lake Superior on the north end, Lake Michigan on the east side, the mighty Mississippi on the west and in between some of the greatest
recreational land and water in the country, not too mention the best cheese ;-) (I had to give a nice plug for the Dairy state).
The above photo is a fairly new sign for the little village here. The little community
of White Lake was once a thriving little town with a flooring company
that employed hard working residents. Our country's unemployment is nearing
10%, but this community's unemployment is at 50%! Things are looking up as Robbins Flooring
is thinking about starting up their 3rd shift again. Slowly but surely things are on the rise again.
I arrived from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport Friday, May 28th into Green Bay. I am helping my
dad care for my mother for the next several weeks. Grocery shopping, Dr. appointments, visiting, loving,
and some cooking will be my way of living for a bit. The weekends will be free and maybe I can get some photos and a few antique shops in for posts. I haven't left, just away for a short time to care for family.
Hope all of you had a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend.
