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!

EET EEZ ALL IN ZEE TRANSLATION

I cannot write with a French accent so you will have to pretend to read this conversation with a HEAVY French accent.

GUEST: We like to park for zee night, how much?

Me: That depends on what type of hook up you would like (I then gave her the rates for the various hook ups)

GUEST: There is zee wi-fi?

Me: Yes, (and I explained our wi-fi system, speaking slowly and clearly…hopeful she would be able to understand me.

GUEST: So how far ees eet to zee nearest restaurant?

Me: The closest one is 4 ½ miles south, just as you cross the railroad tracks and on the right hand side of the road. It is Timber Charlie’s.

GUEST ; (HER BIG BROWN EYES WERE A SHINING WHILE SHE SAID THE FOLLOWING) Eet eez zat far??

Me: 4 ½ miles isn’t very far.

GUEST; You do not have anyzing on site?

Me: No, we do not have a restaurant. (Then I hear Dan in the background saying “she said RESTROOM”. All of a sudden Dan can speak French! It must be his new hearing aids!!). So then I said “OH!!! You said RESTROOM??””

GUEST: That eez eet! Yes!

Well, we got that settled and sent her and hubby off to find the site we assigned to them. And it was not long before she was headed to “zee nearest restroom”!
