OK, everyone ("everyone" being Beth) -- here's a place to plan ahead for this August's drinking, swimming, pyromania, etc.
I talked to Bruiser and he said the lake is beautiful! They had some 100 degree days up there so maybe, just maybe the water will hold some heat.
Can not wait to see you guys!! Work has been brutal for me and for a little bit there I wasn't even sure I could make the trip. But it's all looking good now. We were going to try to stay there for 2 full weeks but work is too demanding.
BTW, i did forget about the floor guy. Are you guys still looking for someone? We have been such slackers at home, no major projects this year. Though I almost bought a pool!
See you in a couple of weeks.
Oh, BTW, we did get a karaoke machine. fun, fun, fun.
Hi Beth, this is Rich using Lorie's user name. Yeah, I've been hoping the same thing about the lake temperature this year. It would be nice if I could go in without my usual blood-curdling screams of shock, huh?
I've started a new job. Same agency, but I'm now in the accounting department doing payroll and A/P. I've only completed my first full week, but MAN, am I ready for Eagle River this year!
Thanks for thinking of us regarding your floor guy, but we did find someone and the floors turned out wonderfully. Just two small rooms, but it really did make a big difference.
A karaoke machine? LOL How cool! Are you bringing it with you for the campfires? We are bringing up a friend this year (you guys actually met him at "Man of La Mancha" . . . I think he and Rusty struck up a conversation about music, or guitars, or something) and he is a huge karaoke fan . . . so much so that he has his own karaoke CDs. Should I tell him to bring them up? LMAO Karaoke at the lake . . . would Wisconsin survive?
See you soon!
Well, we all must wish for a warmer Nelson Lake, just to avoid hearing Rich's annual aria of new swear words for the kids when he takes the plunge.
We're both very, very, VERY much looking forward to our week in Eagle River with you all. Both our jobs have been nuts (as I see Rich explained) and some relaxation and heavy drinking are in order.
See you soon!
