Teapot Tuesday—-Wedding Style

What could be more perfect than helping two young love birds celebrate their special day? Not much but when the young couple wants to thank you for the help you offered during the weekend with a present it makes anyone smile.  Now when that present is a TEAPOT it is like winning the best prize ever!!!!   What a sweet present and one that will ALWAYS make me smile and think of a lovely day spent with some truly special people. The wedding was so sweet---simply perfect and this … [Read more...]

Just a Walk Through A Graveyard

Graveyards and cemeteries have always fascinated me.  There is just a lot of history and interesting facts that can be gathered from taking a leisurely walk through a place where many go to remember a loved one.  When I was in college I often went to the cemetery outside of town to study.  Weird, maybe, but no one bothered me there. When our boys were little we tried to teach them to respect places like cemeteries which many people hold as sacred spots.  Our oldest, Micah, called them "little … [Read more...]

Surf’s Up–2

Last week I posted about our winter time visit to The Surf Ballroom and Museum in Clear Lake, Iowa.   It is a pretty amazing place but I saved the best part, in my humble opinion, for this post. We did not even know that this existed when we have been to The Surf for various concerts including BB King and Chicago.  But it is there and the very best part of the entire place.  I could have spent hours in the "green room" alone. For decades performers have been leaving their mark on the … [Read more...]

Let’s Super Size This! Your Chance to Save a Landmark!

I often wonder why I am the last one to find out about some things.  I try to keep up with the news and the goings on in the world but at times I am basically clueless about the things that are practically in my own back yard.  How did I not know about The Barrel Drive In in Clear Lake---a mere 5 miles from my house? Thanks to a recent social media blitz and with the company of good friends I am now much more educated.  And that, my friends, is a very good thing.  Especially when it comes to … [Read more...]

Surf’s Up!

When Chris was "between jobs" we tried to take in some of the sights around the area that we had not really seen.  We ate in some new to us restaurants and tried to immerse ourselves in all things Iowa.  One of our first stops was to visit The Surf Ballroom and Museum again.  We have been there for various concerts but had never really been able to visit in the light of day. I would highly recommend this to anyone who happens to find themselves near Clear Lake, Iowa.  It is an absolute fun way … [Read more...]

River City Sculpture Walk 2014-2015—-A Delightful Afternoon Walk

Last year I did several posts on the local River City Sculptures on Parade in Mason City.  I loved each and every sculpture that graced our city and told everyone I could to go see them.  There is just something special about each one of them and I was a big cheerleader for the entire series.  I think the work that has gone into getting these sculptures to our city has been magnificent. You can imagine that I was thrilled when several were purchased to remain in our city. Probably the biggest … [Read more...]
