Sep 18, 2020 - Annual Bemidji Fishing Trip

Bemidji, MN It is the annual week-long Bemidji fishing trip at Kohl’s fishing Resort. There are 6 of us, Jim’s brother Ron and his wife Mary, and 2 long-time friends, Jerry and Eileen (Jerry owns the boat, making him a REALLY good friend!). The weather all week has been erratic, dropping down as low as 28° but getting as high as 70° with winds varying from calm to white-caps. The fishing for the week was disappointing but the companionship was great, and the trees are starting to show some splendid color.

Aug 10, 2019 - Bemidji and East Grand Forks, MN

2019-08-11. Bemidji, Mississippi Headwaters, Grand Forks, SD We drove to one of our favorite towns, Bemidji, Minnesota today and stayed at the KOA outside of town; a good campground. We like this area because of its proximity to the headwaters of the Mississippi River at Itasca State Park, about 40 miles away, and Bemidji State Park, about 4 miles from the campground. Though Bemidji SP is my favorite birding spot, we decided to drive to Itasca State Park so Roadie could cross the Mississippi at its source. Well, he did manage to drink some...

Foxy says it well, yuck! I have maide my request on the trip south to be along the Mississippi, will see how many days we can be on the river. It is peaceful just watching its many moods!

Sep 12, 2017 - Flordia survival

Good news on our 5th wheel in Florida, No damage to any of the rigs that were parked close to us or in the park! Maybe a few branches but nothing structural. We are very thankful. Most of you have heard all this already, but for anyone that hasn't heard that our rig was parked in Fl and Irma was a cat 1 hurricane when it went past the park. One of the pictures is of Fort Island pier which is about 10 miles from us and right on the gulf. The park lost power and had trees down and a lot of branches but otherwise no major damage, Edee and I...

Sep 3, 2017 - Whoa......!!

Nothing like getting a new puppy in your life to take up all the time that we used to devote to Journaling etc! ha Sorry about the delay but we got a new Sheltie puppy on Aug 23rd and for those of you who aren't familiar with these little pups.... they take up almost ALL of your time!! ^_^ She is so cute and smart that we're glad!! It was way too quiet around here without a dog in the family. ^_^ We had to drive down to Pine City by the Cities to pick her up... then the following weekend we went back down south of the Cities for a family...

Aug 14, 2017 - Mississippi River AND Paul Bunyan?

The 135 mile drive across western Minnesota was fun, picturesque and rainy! We purposely departed a little late from Grand Forks knowing our drive was a short one and we hoped the drizzle would stop. The drizzle did stop but only about 30 miles from our destination park, the Royal Oaks RV Park, and by that time the coach was a dirty mess outside. So what else does Dave have to do? We recommend this little RV park as it is right close to US 2 with easy off and on plus it's location to Bemidji and the eastern entrance to Itasca State Park....

Aug 8, 2017 - Edee and Foxy plus Partridge and Muskie Moon

I'm using the big computer as I took photos with my big camera and it is easier to put them right on the journal! The sequence of photos are off some as the pictures of the moon were taken last night, Edee and Foxy this morning along with the Partridge. The picture of the Flycatcher was taken a few weeks back but I liked it, so thought I would add it along with the others to fill in the empty spaces. We are just starting on the training of Foxy, boy is this going to be a long haul! Hope everyone is having a great summer! P & E

Aug 2, 2017 - Fox Lake RV Campground; Bemidji, MN

/// Wednesday - August 2, 2017 A Travel Day: We departed E. Grand Forks, MN by 11:00 A.M. Our route today will take us east on US Hwy 2. I found the road conditions to be very good. Traffic was light and the weather was fine under partly cloudy skies. We drove straight through, arriving at Hamilton's Fox Lake Campground at 1:45 P.M., after a distance of 124 miles. Check-in was very simple and we were given a choice to two different sites. We picked a nice end site that was a short pull-through site, close to the laundry and restrooms. The...

Jul 22, 2017 - Loons on the lake

This morning after the rain yesterday and again sometime during the night, the loon pack came back and I was fortunate to have the camera ready this time. The bird in the tree was actually the last photo, as I saw him just as the Loons went behind the trees. This is why we love our lake cabin, it is relaxing, and an enjoyable in the morning to sit and watch the wildlife and enjoy a cup of coffee. Edee said it was my turn to put another entry in! Enjoy

Jul 21, 2017 - Try this with the keyboard attached.... hmm

Here we go... been a long time since I've typed on a keyboard! Anyway... guess who found a sewing machine on sale and started quilting.... for the first time in her life!!! Of course, we had to pick out a really easy pattern... look up the Labarynth pattern. I get the funny feeling that even tho' daughter Lauri cut all the pieces while they were here... it's going to be a LONG time before that one is finished ! Ha. Here are a couple of my practice pieces... it's hard learning a new machine...all the levers and buttons are in different...

Jul 18, 2017 - Visiting friend

We were enjoying our evening, and was surprised to see first a bunny cross the yard, no picture, then we looked down our driveway and this deer appeared, I did get its photo. Using the IPad. Earlier we were fortunate to see three Partridges, a mom and 2 small ones that were learning to fly. We sure do enjoy the wildlife that we get to see.
