  • Good Day turns into misadventure

    Boy, do I have it tough. Last week was a very busy week of ‘work’ for me. On Thursday and Friday I had to trek out to Lake Jericho to do some fact finding about that ‘hidden gem.’

    While there I suffered through unseasonably mild weather with low humidity and a steady breeze. I had to talk to all these nice people who were thrilled to be outdoors enjoying some wholesome fun.

    While there gathering information, I ran into my neighbors Henry and Michelle Mills who volunteered to take me out on the lake for some better pictures.
