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!

THE PREAKNESS!!!

Don’t forget to watch the Preakness!!!

This is a photo of Brother Derek, the horse that I picked for the Derby (who came in 5th at that race). I’m still rooting for Brother Derek, although I would be thrilled for Barbaro if he could win this 2nd race of the Triple Crown. It has been 28 years since a Triple Crown winner! It would be VERY exciting!

This is a little of the “talk” about Brother Derek: Brother Derek's trainer Dan Hendricks at the Alibi Breakfast. He said, "The Kentucky Derby answered a lot of questions. He could come from behind, he could take dirt, have a troubled trip and still run his race. He never quit trying. We knew going in we were going to have a problem with the outside post but he overcame much adversity. This time he just has to run a mile and 3/16."

Post positions were selected for the 131st Preakness on Wednesday afternoon in the ESPNzone in Baltimore, Maryland. As in the past, the horses were drawn at random for a selection order and their connections then picked their post positions. A field of only nine was drawn this year, with Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro set as the morning line favorite at even odds while his main rivals Brother Derek and Sweetnorthernsaint were set at 3-1 and 4-1 respectively

Brother Derek is position 5 and Barbaro is at 6. Posted by Picasa
