A week at Wallinworld. Stay safe all! 😷♥️

The look of fall on our screen house. I hope we get to see some beautiful fall colors before heading south!
I filled the bird feeders thinking it would last the last 4 weeks, and the finches and songbirds and cardinals went ape crap on it!! This was like 4 days afterward. We walk out and there are sometimes 10 birds eating! 😍
Baraboo WI
After a fabulous burger at a really cool place we found in Baraboo, we were given dessert to drink. Licor 43 with a heavy cream float. 👍We MUST find this stuff!!
Got a hair cut in town at a cute little place for $15! They must have swept the hair over from the old lady next to me….
Miss Jett
I found a Wallin throwback in a book!
People- they’re the WORST Jerry!
Found a bar in Packer country with owners from Illinois!
They play a game, flag football. Everybody’s name is put in a jar. Whenever a flag is thrown, the person gets the GB mug and drinks free until the next flag is thrown. Steve got it halfway through the second quarter and was hoping to have it through halftime…. (that would have been a loser for the bar!)

2 seconds before the end of 2nd quarter a flag is thrown!! I got the mug from him!! Na na na na na!!

Hope everyone has an enjoyable Labor Day! Here’s a little of Wallinworld from last week. Have a good week and stay safe 😷 Love to all ♥️

Got out on the scoot for that awesome weather

Knuth Brewery in Ripon 👍
Our new friend Stephanie
Veggie pizza was molto bene! Steve had a Cuban sammy and said it was the best he’s ever had.
Non conformity 👍
Of course
Choices. Condom or crossbow… 🤔
So my thought that we had one rogue mouse was wishful thinking….. This was number 5. 😳
Going to try cotton balls soaked in peppermint as a deterrent. Super jumbo should do it! 😁🤞
The line at Dollar General. I don’t generally shop there, but I was in need of mouseproofing supplies. This is a return visit deterrent!!
Our friend the Blue Heron taking flight. I read they eat mice. My new hero!
I now look at all small animals as potential intruders
Crazy rain last week left a lot of areas flooded
Beans on the Lake Michigan shore ♥️♥️

Hello September – goodbye 90+ degree weather! Well, here in Wisconsin anyway we’re done with hot weather… Forecasts already just upper 70’s during the day. 👍Love my fall sweatshirt weather! Last week was wonderful with the beans, and then with the Yackos on the weekend. Cockles warmed! 🥰

Morning after a storm
Bennie filing the dog bowl with bubbles
Campfire chillin
S’mores 😍🙁
The fam on the Wisconsin Ducks
JJ and Jammy
Piano rock
Waldo and Jes
You can already tell Bennie is going to love roller coasters
Found a farm that caters to the kids with interactive play and a petting zoo
JJ a little more timid with feeding then Bennie
This guy kept turning his butt towards me and posing 😂
Ringo Jr
New fishing poles from Papa
Getting the hang of it
When you leave a bag of stuff (including snacks) in the screen tent overnight. In that baggie was flaming hot Cheetos! The dog’s water bowl was red and I couldn’t figure out why at first. He was either dipping the Cheetos or washing them down!! 🥵
Princeton WI
Tchotchkes and rubber chickens
Bathing beauties
They started off hesitant, then turned into jumping machines!! 👍
Found an Amish bakery
One of the MANY delicious purchases
Outside the bakery. Some kind of washing contraption 🤷‍♀️
Yacko and Waldo
Me and JP
Mags and Ally
Drinks and bug spray!
Storm coming in over the lake
Clouds over farmland
Night sky

The week in review

Misty morning
I’m obsessed with these cows! ♥️
You can hear this guy fart when he’s walking….
Sucky parking is not exclusive to Florida
I got ducked. I didn’t know this was a thing – but I’m game!
Spent stalks
If it were 4 wheels, I’d be more skeptical…… 😳
This guy landed on my arm and it took a few swats to knock him off. No idea what it is, but that shield looking thing was hard. 🤷‍♀️
Joan stayed up all night staring
And staring
And staring. Freaked me out since Steve was gone for a few days!
As I was writing that I was pretty sure it was a rogue that got in (and got caught within 10 minutes of setting the trap) I swear I’m hearing movement around me!! My loathe of killing anything is not as strong as my refusal to share my living space with a rodent!
This was just from this morning. Joan hearing it too. Crap!!
Beavers, bucks, beef, beer, baseball
The difference between me and Steve eating. One (well I) could argue that I’m neater while eating and use more napkins….
My new sticker
The best news of all – my beans are here for the week!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️
JJ and Marla Hooch
Lazy summer day
Bennie and her “sauce”
The girls are digging their loft
Sissy love 🥰. Bennie fell asleep.
I think Papa had the most fun on the campground train ride! 😂

5 more sleeps til my beans come up for a WEEK! 💤💤💤💤💤 Everyone stay safe and have a good week! 😷 Love to all! ♥️

Got back from Hayward to find these beauties waiting for us! I never eat hot house tomatoes, but love, love them right off the vine, grown in fresh sunshine! 😋
Kasia this is for you! 😘
Found Andy’s Meats in the little town of Endeavor WI
More Joan “spread”
We took a drive in the deep farmland. So green and lush… It was beautiful! Farm houses on the horizon. I am so intrigued by the whole farming industry…
The county roads we were on were literally cut through acres of corn and soy (?) We drove for miles like this!!
Country church
Buffalo Lake in Montello
Got out for some Cubbies. Glad Brewers fans don’t go out and fill up the joints!!
Nobody here either 👍
Green heron
My frog friends
If you’re in the market, let me know….
Not thrilled with the potty training
Lovers of ice cream like their Mama
And Papa
Bennie entertaining Jammy on FaceTime ♥️

Northwoods scenes. Headed back to central Wisconsin today. We sure will miss this area ♥️

You see this all the time ..
This on the gravel road to our campground. Doesn’t necessarily make me feel warm and fuzzy 😳
“I caught you a delicious bass” Trivia!
Last day fishing
Had to change sites for the last two nights. Better but WiFi worse 👎
The Clampet move to the other site 😁
Roasted corn 😋
I see the tree that attacked the kids in Poltergeist
This is a big bowl of wrong!
I got up in the middle of the night. That spot on the left is mine. I know I’ve shown similar pics before – more proof the struggle is real.

August 6, 2020

A great day on Lake Namakagon with old friends Cindy and George ♥️

We had lunch outside at the Loon Saloon and yapped a little with a couple on the dock. On the way back, we found them in the middle of the lake attempting to row back to their cabin because their motor konked out. We towed them back. He had a Cubs hat on or we would have left them out there 😂😂
Joan Jett watching Steve take the garbage to the dumpster.

August 3, 2020

Ahhhhh the Northwoods – Hayward Wisconsin! The Wisconsin of my yoot and vacation spot up til we moved to Florida. Also the original planned retirement spot. It makes my heart smile to be back! 🥰

As kids, we knew when we made the turn onto A at Dow’s Corner we were almost to the cabin!
Dow’s is a bar now and owner Ken is an Elvis fanatic like Steve…. he gave us a preview of the song he’s doing at his upcoming “Elvis night”
Misty morning
Fish cleaning house
Sounds of morning
Headed to town
One of my favorite places to go junking is closed due to stupid Covid 😥
We never miss eating at the German restaurant.
Main street Hayward
My favorite place for jelly bismarks adjusting to Covid
My tall pines ♥️
Got mowers?
