We visit the Browns

We visited the Browns this past week in "Up Nort Wisconsin" as it is called. Their home was not hard to find, just hard to get past the gate.

But once past the Guard Cat

We found Marge and Bob have a beautiful home nestled in the woods where the birds and deer come to feed.

Unfortunately, the Browns weren't quite ready for overnight guests at their home but Bob invited us to stay in the guest cottage. A tad drafty but it was a warm night and we had to go out to use the facilities anyway. Next year maybe running water, Bob says.

Bob and Marge offered to show us around and we jumped in the car. It was an adventure!

So if you're invited "Up Nort" don't hesitate. You'll have more fun than you've had in ages.

Time to Start Again

Last evening at the Racine Artists Gallery First Friday event, two friends from Chicago stopped by. Gary Weidner and John Zehren who are both wonderful artists reminded me that I had not posted on my blog for a long, long, long time. I can take a hint as well as the next geezer so I'll be posting more frequently talking about my photography but also passing along thoughts about artists that I think more people should be aware of.

For instance John has a website at Send him an email and tell him you want to see more of his great sculpture on the site.

And Gary Weidner also has a site at where you can view his paintings and collages.

Both of these young (to me) men hail from Racine and I hope their work will make it back here for showing in the near future.

more to come . . .
