Through the Cheese Curtain

As we look forward to relocating after we sell our home, we’re taking “good-bye” visits to some of our favorite midwest locations. A great place to write, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin is one of my most-frequented haunts.

As 22-year Illinoisans, we fondly think of our Wisconsin neighbors as “Cheese Heads.” Famous for beer, brats, cheese (curds), and the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin is breathtakingly beautiful! And the people are some of the friendliest folks on earth.

Beautiful Lake Geneva, WI with an outrageously beautiful sky overhead.

There’s no better place on earth for a brat fan!

Too full to walk, a horse-drawn carriage is just the ticket!

The architecture is like eye candy.

Who can resist a man who cooks?!

If you were relocating, what favored place would you say good-bye to?


Whine and Cheese

While I haven’t actually thrown myself on the ground, or kicked and screamed, Len just asked me, “Laurie, would you like some cheese with your whine?” In other words, I’ve been fussing, whining, and generally belly-aching.

When we contacted the Geek Squad Recovery Team to find out the status on the potential recovery of the data on my dead hard drive, they said they hadn’t received it yet and that they’d send us an email with a status once they did. In other words, “Cool your jets, lady.”

A person can only clean so much! After that, I apparently throw my pent-up energy into whining. I said I didn’t believe it. Len said, “You know how you’ve threatened to record my snoring? Well, I’m going to record your whining.”

“Yes, thank you very much. I’d like a glass of merlot and some blue stilton cheese with crackers …”

Listen with your heart,
