Where did the summer go? It seems like yesterday that we were welcoming our first families in June. We had a terrific summer and enjoyed seeing you all. Now we had to send this picture because that is me skiing on September 24th! It was so hot in the office, the lake was calling our names and Lisa, Anna and I just had to go. I don’t think this will ever happen again in our lifetime when the water is delightfully warm at this time of year! The next picture will be of the beautiful fall colors we get to enjoy every year.
The Loons are still waking us up at 4:30 a.m. but they are starting to head south. We also saw a flock of Pelicans heading south. Ed is flying to Phoenix on Sunday and it won’t be long before Dave and Barb drive to Fort Myers. That’s a lot of wildlife heading South!
We’re taking the Hootenanny on the road, and possibly coming to a city near you! In February we hope to visit Sioux Falls, Omaha, Des Moines, Iowa City, the Chicago area, the Twin Cities and Winnipeg. If you have a few friends or family members that you think would be interested in finding out more about the resort, we will let you know more specifically when we’re heading to your neck of the woods. Larry will be playing the piano, and we’re recruiting staff to help put on a mini-hoot. Caitlin and I will be there singing Pelican Lake but we’ll need a volunteer for the Monotone Lawnboy! If you feel that you could host us for an hour and a half in your home or at your club where we could entertain and inform some of “your people”, drop me a line. We’ll pick up the tab and you help us with some specifics!
