About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

It won’t be long and we’ll hear the charcoal being dumped in the grill, the lighter fluid being enthusiastically squirted onto said charcoal, the hopefull cry of “One match’ll do ‘er!” and the resonant WHOOSH!!! as flames screech by the front of your body and singe off your eyebrows.

Your friends encourage you to suck it up and have another beer, after all those eyebrows DID look like a caterpillar crawling across your forehead, and besides, didn’t you do that once in high school by getting to close to a Bunsen burner?? Same thing happened then, remember?? You had eyebrow ashes scattered across your lab table and your partner, Suzie, freaked, remember???

You are about ready to put on the steaks and burgers when you realize that you have charcoal and flames escaping out of the bottom of your grill!!! What is this?? A hole has rusted through?? (Or did it burn through??) NOT TO WORRY!!!! YOU CAN PICK UP A FREE YOOPER BBQ GRILL AT ANY OF THE FOLLOWING STORES (of course, not ALL of these brand stores are even IN the U.P!):

CVS Pharmacy
Sam's Club
Big Lots
