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!

I've had several emails (people to shy to post I think) about finding the right bra and what all we women go through to look good and still be comfortable.  Do any men out there have this issue with finding the right "drawers"??  I doubt it.  How about the right T-shirt?  Jeans??  I've never heard a guy ask "do these jeans make my butt look big?"  (except on that commercial from a couple of years ago).  Do men worry about the right shoes to match the right outfit?  The right purse to go with the right color of clothing or the season??  (Honestly, you know these are things that I don't worry about.  As of two days ago, I have two pair of casual shoes and my old, flat dress shoes.  I own two purses and a fanny pack for those times I may be at Cedar Point)

I guess there are some "getting older" issues for men and what they do to try to look good.  There are commercials for hair products to cover up the grey (for men's use only), there's a new "T-shirt" that acts like a girdle shoving the love handles and tummy INWARD (but seriously, where does that excess fat go?  Up under the arm pits? Does that man then have man boobs??  How attractive is that gonna be??).  But even those two things were geared towards women before they were men, right?  Hair coloring  (cover up that grey!!) and girdles...been around for a LONG time. 

So, men, let's hear from you....what is YOUR side of the story?
