fund local youth programs. And it's always lots of fun! The booth is manned by

Congratulations to Bob Wilhelm on his third and FINAL retirement.
I'm letting him adjust for a few weeks and then I'm showing him the
"Honey Do" list I've been keeping since 1983!
We had a great day trip with the grandsons and daughter Jenn to Fort
Atkinson at Ft. Calhoun Monday. It was the first fort to be built in the land
known then as the Louisiana Purchase in 1819. So much history there and in
the Visitor's Center. Day permit $6, $2 for adults, $1 kids under 13.
