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!

You may recall that Dan "gave up" chewing 11 days, 12 hours and 47 minutes ago for his insurance physical tomorrow.

I know you didn't have a good idea of what he looked like before this event, but he is a shadow of his former self....sitting on a wicker potty chair, a can of chew in one hand and a beer in the other....counting down the hours and minutes till 8 a.m. Monday, April 13th.

    I hope he can find the strength to give it up for good. Tell him to hang in there one day at at time.
