Three outstanding paintings were my favorites. I hope you enjoy them as
Milwaukee's been having a ladybug problem. Really!
Look reeeaaalll close at the infestation on this downtown Milwaukee
building! Ahhhh - it's the attack of the killer ladybugs! On a
lighter note, the fall colors were spectacular. As a travel note, folks, take
Lake Shore Drive (turns into Lincoln Creek Drive) from the village of Fox Point
south to the Museum - the view of the stately mansions giving way to the
lakefront (that might as well be ocean!) is one of the most pleasant 20 minute
drives you will ever take.
The Kohler Arts Center in downtown Sheboygan, Wisconsin has a
that's to-die-for. Artists donated 450 "altered" chairs of all
materials for an auction Nov. 3rd, proceeds to benefit Sheboygan
Community. Photos were not allowed in most areas (sorry!) but the
psychedelic outside chair (Art Center in background) and "hanger"
chair give you an idea! We were allowed pictures of the bathrooms,
decorated by artistic volunteers - this is the MEN's room (yah, it was empty, at
least it was after I went in there!).
This is Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the baseball
stadium that made the news in 1999 when the "Big Blue" Crane toppled,
took down this entire wall, and killed three construction workers. It is
now safely finished, and recognized citywide as an important landmark. We
did not come for the ball game.
(Outside view, then the scoreboard and infield).
Here is the bronze memorial of the three construction
workers who died in the accident. On the memorial wall behind
the bronze are the names of all the participants in building and re-building the
I visited my friends Judy and Dale Shumway in Janesville,
Wisconsin in October. Here is some of her work in her stained glass shop
"The Glass Garden". We took stained glass classes together, and
she opened her business with structural stained glass pieces (awesome!) and I
went the direction of jewelry. They have an extensive selection of stained
glass PATTERN BOOKS on their website, it's well worth a look!
3 Window pieces, and a fireplace screen, made by Judy.
Work tables (she has regular workshops with many satisfied
customers!), and pictures of a portion of her stained glass inventory and
pattern books (whew!). A growing, successful business that definitely
fills a need for the Rock County area. An honor to know you both!
One last shot of her work area. A busy beehive most of the time!
A real custard stand in Wisconsin! For some reason, the Southwest does not
recognize Frozen Custard as a food group! What a pity!
GIANT SPIDERS ARE INVADING SIX FLAGS GREAT AMERICA IN GURNEE, ILLINOIS!
Okay, so it WAS close to Halloween.

FESTIVAL AND OUR WORKSHOP!
Here we are at the UFO Conference in Laughlin, Nevada held every year (Sept,
2001). Some pretty serious lectures by respected professionals! But
this was the fun side you'll all enjoy. The "victory" sign was
taken through the archway of the River Palms Casino portico.
Here we are south of Laughlin NV in
Oatman, AZ where the wild
burros roam the streets! It's a ghost town from the gold mining days
(circa 1906) that's still a very colorful place! We visited here Sept.
19th, 2001. p.s. see the grin on Glenn's face as he takes a little
nostalgia trip to when he raised burros himself.
We just got back from visiting friends in Oregon City, Oregon (Sept. 6, 2001). This is the
spillway near their home.
These are in the dahlia fields in Canby, Oregon where our friend Linda
took us. It was hard to decide which pictures to show you! AWESOME
place. Some of the dahlias were as big as dinner plates! We
couldn't get enough of 'em!
Here's Glenn and Heidi and friend Bill (Linda's husband) in Dave
Johnson's fishing boat on the Columbia River (Oregon). We caught 11 Coho
Silver Salmon, about 10-12 pounds each, and threw back 5 King Salmon because the
river quota had been met. Dave, the professional guide, is in the
background (sorry Dave!) GREAT GUIDE! Check out his website at www.davidjohnsonfishing.citysearch.com.
We recommend it! What a trip! And LOTS of good eating to come!
Here we are at Camp 18 Restaurant between Portland and Seaside,
Oregon, an old logging camp. Trees big enough for you? See the log
puller that is connected to a tall pole, with wires and equipment that literally
dragged these huge trees towards it at this central location. Charming
restaurant with more than ample portions of food. Finally, see the huge
winch! (Bill and Linda are behind).
Finally, a wood carving/chain saw carving gallery with this incredible wood
carving of coral and tropical fish! This is near the spillway in Oregon
