My Hosts

I have to take some time to thank my brother and his wife for all their hospitality. Being a bit curmudgeonish I am not easy to deal with, but they happily housed the Phos. It was nice to see the Phos ancestral mansion and how my sister-in-laws decorating and skills have really turned the place into a beautiful home - the Tiki Bar was a nice touch as well. At any rate, I appreciate their kindness and miss them already, not to mention the Leinie's Oktoberfest beer that became a staple while I was visiting.

There are several others I have to mention, the cool cats McGee, Murphy, The Black Streak (AKA Max)and Gus the Dog, the actual owner of the home and landscaper extraordinaire. He likes to help my sister-in-law dig, though as with Yukon he always seems to pick the wrong spot. He is also a hero - he keeps Lake Michigan from flooding Milwaukee by biting the waves.

They are an incredible family and made it all that much tougher to leave. There was another hostess up in Manitowoc, but she deserves her own post and I'll get to that tomorrow...

Good to know that you all had such a great time. We are all better for the experience, even when we live it vicariously through postings like yours.

How lucky we all are to have such a protector who is willing to take on a huge lake one wave at a time. snerx.

Make it a good one.

My, what a good looking family!
