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!

Did you see the Obama news a moment ago? A reverse boot camp for Veterans to assist them with the transition from military life to "regular life". Also giving tax breaks (I think that is the term he used) to companies that hire Veterans. I hope this isn't just PBS (political bull ----)

    Hi Cathy, I hope this stuff happens but if you saw 0bama's lips moving he was almost surely LYING. Glad to hear all is well UP there, haven't been online as much lately, my computer is down, school 4 days/week, and just got new Marlin 30-30 lever action to play with. Hopefully 0bama's veterans' plan will apply to ALL vets, including Dan and I.

  2. Gary, Isn't it terrible we, AMERICA, have gotten to this place?! And I read that Standard and Poors HAS taken away our AAA rating!
