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!

First, let me just say that I am SO glad this Labor Day weekend is over with! 

What a HUGE disappointment!!!  In the (going on) 20 years that we have been here, we have NEVER experienced such a totally slow Labor Day weekend!  We even had a cabin left open for the weekend.

Dan says that if this trend continues that next  year we will close right after Labor Day.  I'm not sure what his line of thinking is, other than both of us get yancy about now...next week we'll be getting Gracie, the 5th wheel out of storage!!!  This is assuming Dan is more mobile by then.

So, just some thoughts..and most of them are NOT mine...wish I was that smart!

Remember in elementary school, you were told that in case of fire you have
to line up quietly in a single file line from smallest to tallest. What is the logic
in that? What, do tall people burn slower?

I would imagine that if you could understand Morse code,
a tap dancer would drive you crazy

You know the oxygen masks on airplanes?
I don't think there's really any oxygen.
I think they're just to muffle the screams.

Advice for the day: If you have a lot of tension and
you get a headache, do what it says on the aspirin
bottle: "Take two aspirin" and "Keep away from children"

The bee…the natural enemy of a tightrope walker.
 We will never be an advanced civilization as long as rain showers can delay the launching of a space rocket

kids always perceived the bathroom as a place where you wait it out until all the groceries are unloaded from the car.
