Nature Has Something to Say

Posted on June 6th, 2018
By Christy Walcott Since meeting my husband, Andy, I have attended countless antique car shows.  Don’t get me wrong, classic autos are intriguing from their unique designs to history filled with character, however, a girl can get antsy at times.  A good friend let me in on a little secr…

Hello, high water!

Out See Go
By Chris Engle, contributor These are the evenings I dream of all year – especially back in mid April as I begrudgingly dug myself out of a late-winter snowstorm along with everyone else in Gaylord. It was that historic snowfall of 30-some inches in one weekend which has helped make the com…

Sandals in the Snow

Posted on May 5th, 2018
By Christy Walcott There’s just something about spring that’s hard to explain.  With the first warm day, whether it occurs in early March or holds off until late April, you feel your senses awaken.  The crisp, pure winter air is replaced with all the scents you’d forgotten – damp

Past My Bedtime

Posted on March 1st, 2018
If you’re anything like me, then you are not a rock star anymore. Going “out on the town” is a distant memory; going out of the house past 8:00 p.m. in the winter is virtually nonexistent! But every now and then, you have that undeniable urge to do what you always say you will do – get together with…

Valentine’s Day Trifecta – Snowshoes, the Spa and Squid

Posted on February 2nd, 2018
Although I tend to prefer nontraditional or more personalized date options, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, I want to do it up right!  I’m talking roses, candlelit dinners and the type of gift that comes in a perfectly wrapped and ribbon adorned box.  This holiday brings out the bes…

I’m sensing a pattern here

Out See Go
By Chris Engle, contributor The beauty of days like today, when ice and wind has battered my ambitions and frozen my garage doors shut, is knowing that I took advantage of the better days when they were here. My sanity relies on fishing once a week and walking in the woods at least every other da…
