I got here at 9:30 Monday, and left my sister's by 10 AM to go to DeForest and see my friend from high school. We had a wonderful time. She drove me to Lodi, then to Baraboo (home of the Ringling brothers circus) to fabric shops and an antique store. I added to my stash, and also scored a 1940s Dresden Plate quilt with only minor damage. I'll need to replace two blades, but otherwise, it is pristine! The back has some light stains, but no holes! When I get a good photo, I'll post it.
We rode the Merrimac ferry across the Wisconsin River, stopped briefly at Devil's Lake State park, and to a wonderful store in the Dells called the Red Shed. It was closing time there, so I went back with Marcia the next day and bought Mr Wazoo a kinetic garden sculpture. (Also, pictures later...)
I spent a day with my son, his wife, and Grandsons, and we had fun looking around Madison and going out for Thai food. The next day, I went to my daughter's volleyball match (they won!) and met her friends there.
Back to my sister's for a fabric shop hop to three stores, to Farm and Fleet for the Alfred Dunner clothing sale, then to Woodmans for Madiera wine. I use it for cooking and haven't been able to get it in GA.

|Geezer selfie...why do I always look stupid in selfies!?|
|The river is really high. Wisconsin has had a huge amount of rainfall this summer.|
|The name of the ferry...Colsac III|
|At the Red Shed, they also had these Christmas ornaments made from yo-yos and buttons. I thought I could make some for the boutique! Wow! I sure won't charge $4!|
|The gallery, with Olympic quilts on display.|
|Three courts of volleyball in full swing.|
|I had a wonderful time with my HS friends at lunch in Monona on Wednesday. We laughed and chatted for a few hours, then said our good-byes and see you on Facebook!|
On the road, I was behind this truck with the weirdest thing on the back. It looks like there is a little door with a guy in a turban peeking out. What's that about? I took a picture just because it was strange.
|See you later, alligator.|
