Jewett Lake was frozen over several weeks ago. Then warm weather came and opened up the middle. Several days of high winds expanded the open middle and pushed ice chunks onto the eastern shore creating a beautiful ice scene.
On the negative side, this uneven ice will not make for good skating during Christmas vacation when my kids come home. Oh well. Sure is pretty.
What is it about living on a lake? For some it’s water fun, boating, swimming, fishing. I think for me it’s the view and the increased awareness of the turning of the seasons, and nature’s rhythm. Living in town I experienced seasons, but nothing like on the lake. Continue reading “Rhythm of Lake Life”
In March Carrie purchased two wood duck houses. I nailed them up on two trees with the entrances facing the water. I put some cedar wood shavings inside for nesting material. To our delight we have been watching wood ducks in the trees. Continue reading “Wood Ducks”

August 22 motorcycle adventure
Sometimes when Carrie asks to go on a motorcycle ride, it means we should find somewhere (out there) to eat. I never need my arm twisted to go for a ride, especially to eat good food. So last August 22, we set out on a motorcycle adventure.
Willy T’s has excellent food and a wonderful atmosphere. The hamburger’s are awesome so that’s where we decided to have our motorcycle date. Since Willy T’s is at the golf course that I frequent often, I thought it wise to hit golf balls on the range before we ate. Continue reading “Willy T’s at Thumper Pond”

This blog post has really very little about real estate. Just a record of something my wife and I have wanted to do for a long time – – take a trip to Bemidji by motorcycle.
On Sunday we decided to take the motorcycle and drive to Bemidji to see our granddaughter Bo. There are several things to consider at our age when we go on a motorcycle trip. Continue reading “Our Motorcycle Ride.”
I am sitting at a booth in the exhibition building at the West Otter Tail Fairgrounds. I have had an opportunity to chat with a lot of friends and meet new people. The experience has brought back many memories. Continue reading “Ottertail County Fair”
