The day certainly didn’t start out in the right direction entertaining us with thunder and rain. The threat subsided and the artists returned to their easels. Busy most of the morning and early afternoon working at St. Wenceslaus Chicken Dinner. Checked out Fishtown around 2 and was impressed with the artists work.

Ah, sweet summer! Happy summer solstice to all. It’s a chamber of commerce day here.
It’s been one of the nicest day we’ve had. A perfect Father’s Day. Below, Bill and Mim Steele with daughter Niki, Mim is 101 and Bill will be 100 on July23. Great memories with this Leland couple on the golf course and on the lake racing National One Design.

A take the top off the Jeep day. Blue sky and warmer…. Can Summer be far behind? Rick’s Café is now open for the season.
