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!

Necrobiosis lipoidica

At the risk of embarrassing myself, I'm sharing a few photos of my arm with you. 

The bottom right photo is of one of the smaller spots that I already have on my arm.  It started out as a mosquito bite 4  years ago.  I have other places that turned into these ugly things due to mosquito bites and really ugly one on my left shoulder from having major surgery.

If you have any interest in learning more about this condition, check out

It's just one of several pages with some info about this condition.


  1. Oh my! You poor soul! It looks terribly painful!

  2. It is painful, but I am very fortunate that mine hasn't escalated to the point that other people experience. Thanks for your concern.


Thank you for visiting Yooper Yarns and leaving a comment!
