Spicer, MN

Almost caught up on the blog,,still dealing with the internet, or should I say, lack of internet with AT&T,,after jumping through hoops, standing on one foot and spinning around to get signals since we left Seattle we are now up to September 25th when we arrived in Spicer, MN to visit with Fred, Theresa and Tom. What a beautiful place they have in Spicer ,,,where 'everthing is nicer',,,they made me say that! tee hee hee...
As you can see by the photos, they had plenty of room to accomodate our rig on the lower garage pad,,as opposed to the upper garage,,first time I have ever seen a 2 story garage...the view from their front window is of Grass Lake and to the left and down the road is Green Lake,,afterall, it is the land of 10,000 lakes? or something like that,,we even got to take a spin in their new boat on Green Lake,,sorry no photos but enjoyed cocktails on the lake before the sun set...also toured Theresa's YMCA facility..state of the art with all the bells and whistles..picked gourds from their garden..walked to the winery at the end of the road and we bought some Minnesota wine Theresa treated us to honey crisp apples that were to die for...also took a little road trip to the casino..Theresa had to go to Chicago to teach some classes and Fred and Tom had to work but we enjoyed our stay there but decided we needed to start heading south before the snow flies...Tom will be leaving next month for basic training in Great Lakes, IL..he's in the Navy now...we are all so very proud of him,,
