Duke and I leave on vacation tonight. We are flying to Chicago then driving up to visit my Aunt and Uncle at their lake house near Stone Lake, Wisconsin. From there we will drive to Manchester, Iowa to visit Duke’s family, and then back to Chicago to fly home. It is quite a bit of driving but we love exploring and Wisconsin. Illinois, Iowa are a beautiful part of the country. I don’t expect to be near a computer so won’t be blogging or answering email. I will be keeping my mind open for interesting and surprising tidbits to blog about when I get home. Have a great Independence Day!
