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!

Honestly, we didn't really ride to the bottom of the hill on this mechanic's seat.  But after a LONG day of painting white stripes on parking areas at painting blue boxes on other parking areas in order to come back and pain the white handicap symbol...we'll, we decided to look like we were having some fun!!

That mechanics seat or whatever it is really called, REALLY helped save my back while painting those stripes!  Dan and I have decided that I've gotten good enough at it, that if we are ever asked to paint the yellow lines down the middle of the road, we've got the method down.  In that case, he would hook that seat up to the front of the truck, put me and all my painting supplies up front and push us down the middle of the road.  Now that sounds like something to do AFTER we celebrate New Years!!!

Have a good one, yall!!

  1. Hi Cathy, My back hurts just looking at you painting those stripes. Glad the "red chair" helped you out. And glad you and Dan lived to tell the story riding down the hill :-)

    Here's hoping for a fun-filled, happy and HEALTHY 2012 to you and your family. xoxox jj
