A Beautiful September

This month has been one of the most beautiful Septembers I can remember in Wisconsin. All but four days so far have been above normal temperatures. Right now, it is the 8th warmest September on record, and there is a week left.

Labor Day weekend was actually too hot and humid for my liking. It was near 90 and extremely humid the entire weekend. The park was full, and we had four couples camping here that are friends of ours. We had a great time.

Since then, we have been full or near full each weekend this month. Last weekend, friends came and camped here again. More fun was had. We sure enjoy having friends come and camp in our park.

Tomorrow we are going to our son Eric’s house to help him with a little landscaping project. Then we are going to the wake for Kevin’s aunt. She passed away last week at the age of 84. Always sad to lose a loved one.

A few weeks ago, I saw motion outside the window in the morning. I was sure surprised to see this female pheasant. It’s the first time I’ve seen a pheasant at this park. She ran along the edge of the soybean field and disappeared. The picture isn’t the greatest, but you get the idea. Love those long pheasant tail feathers.

Not much else to report. We’ve been busy this entire season, so are looking forward to the end and some down time. We plan to leave Oct. 12th. We’ll spend a few nights in Iowa visiting Kevin’s brother and family, a few nights in Nebraska visiting our son Korey and his wife Cathryn, and then a possible stop in the Denver area to visit more family and friends. Denver will be dependent on weather.

Our plan is to be in Yuma near the end of October. We’re going back to Fortuna de Oro for the winter. We enjoyed it there so much last year, we decided to do it again.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
