Postcard from Minnesota

What day is it?
It’s today, squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day, said Pooh. ~A. A. Milne

(Ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka, Orono, Minnesota. View from a new baby’s room, where today is always a favorite day.)

    Maureen, loved the Milne quote, pretty much my whole life’s philosophy. Denise and I are watching our grandsons while Courtney and Tobin are in Mexico. It mostly involves trucking them to school and sports lessons. Only about a week left at US Catholic.

    I did alot of fishing on the same lake summer and winter, but during the winter we also consumed alot of Peppermint Schnapps. Beatiful area, enjoy Maureen.

    Interesting photo. Gives me the creeps to think of driving on ice though.
    Enjoy your post cards.
