One foot nailed to the floor, going around in a circle

Matilda got mixed up, she thought we were
headed for HI when it was WI.
Had a nice surprise, friends of ours that we have known for years in the a earlier life, upon reading the blog, realized we were all in the same area, so we were able to meet up for a few days. We had a great visit, and a first for all of us, tried some "fried cheese curds". I mean can you think of anything else that could be worse, they did taste super good, so they must be really really bad! We did share a small order for all of us, which takes the guilt away.
Our site, Marshfield, WI

We have been here for almost a week. Was a shock seeing my aunt, as she had aged significantly, but then it has been almost three years since the last time we were here. It is so sad, but she is still able to live by herself. Unfortunately she has no children or relatives, other than me to help her, and every three years is not much help. Trying to get her affairs in order so that if the time comes when she is not able, she will have the decisions she made, not some bureaucrat.

Farm nearby

Other than that we have been just taking it easy. Chuck has a golfing friend that he met when we were in Tucson a few years ago for the winter. Makes him happy to have someone to play with. Makes me happy too. The mobile home park we are in is very quite, but not like an RV park. People here tend to stay in their homes. Probably be here for another week, hopefully can get things taken care of by then. Weather has been good, had some thunder last night, but very little rain. Totally different sound to the thunder compared to Colorado.

Well we are off to pick up my Aunt and go to dinner, more another time.
