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!

Well, the good news is, we don’t have to try to find that needle in the haystack by digging up 60 foot of electrical line! The bad news is it is one of the 3 main breakers in the electrical room that needs to be replaced. Some how it overheated and the wires “kind of” melted. The good news is it CAN be fixed…as soon as the electrician can get the breaker and get the power company out here to cut off all the power to the campground so he can replace that breaker. The bad news is, it doesn’t appear to have been caused by the storm so it can’t be turned in on the insurance. The electrician will be checking further when he can get things really torn apart. The good news is, he was able to give it a temporary fix.

I hate to admit that we have to set mouse traps in our bathroom under the sinks, but we do. And there was one in it this morning (another sign it is getting closer to fall??). I consider this situation maintenance so it was Dan’s job to dispose of the critter and re-set the trap. (Because he prefers to not have anything to do with the office, he is always telling me he is maintenance and I am office so it only goes to reason…..) Anyway, Nick, the Husky is deathly afraid of mouse traps (long story). All he has to do is hear the sound of the cabinet door being opened and he gets as far away as possible. He didn’t hear the cabinet door this a.m but he realized there was a mouse trap involved when I went for the peanut butter jar (we have a cheap brand of peanut butter that is for mouse traps and bird food). Nick knew Dad had the mouse trap. At that point, Nick tried to engage Chewy into a 2 dog group panic, but she was having none of it…she was eating breakfast. Until he heard that cabinet door close, Nick held his own one dog stationary panic in the room furthest from the bathroom. I’m really not sure how much protection he would be from burglars. He might be protective as long as they didn’t come in wielding mouse traps.
