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!

We spent part of Monday with some good friends, Toby Price, Glenn and Karen McMichael at the Texas Roadhouse.

The TX RDH was offering quite a nice menu for the Vets to that is where we decided to go.  Karen and I both ended up bringing about 1/2 of OUR lunch home with us (our meal was not free, but it sure was good and plenty of it!).  It was extremely PACKED!

Yesterday, I spent the morning and part of the afternoon getting laundry all done up.  So glad we don't have to go to a laundromat to do it!  The only good thing about going to a laundromat is you can get it all done at one time.  But at least this gave me some exercise walking from our home on wheels to Toby's home where the w & d is.

Tomorrow, November 15th, is the BIG DAY IN MICHIGAN!!!  (A little Yooper talk now...)  All da women head to da nearest Shop-ko and actually encourage da husbands to go do deer camp....for da next two weeks!  WAY back when, kids in Michigan schools use to be able to take da day off to go huntin wit der fodders!

So here is a couple of Yooperism's for ya;
Ya might be a Yooper if your wife's Lady Remington is a 30-06
Your wife's nightgown says "Fred Bear Archery

Your best cloths are reversible, Blaze Orange to Camouflage 

Only know Ted Nugent for his archery equipment 
Your idea of deer hunting is driving down the logging roads in your 4 wheel drive WITHOUT your gun
You're turned on by a woman who can field dress a deer
You’ve ever hit a deer with your car…deliberately


I'm posting a few shots here that I took yesterday.  I haven't really done much with photography since we've been here since we've been working the deer check station and haven't had a reason to be out on the refuge.

  I think this must be quite a work out to get to the top!  I doubt I'd make it to the 3rd flight of steps!
