Well, I am back from vacation. I had one request to know where I was. Well, dear reader, I was back home in Minnesooooooooota. My step mother's family (from North Dakota) has their get together every year on a lake in Park Rapids, MN. This year, I decided to join in.
Since I have been living in the "big City" so long, they thought they had better provide me some illumination for those dark Minnesota nights.
For those dark rural nights
We spent the week eating, water skiing, eating, fishing, eating, tubing, eating, and eating the fish we caught fishing. I also journeyed up to the headwaters of the Mississippi river which starts at lake Itasca (about 15 miles from where I was staying).
what I did on summer vacation
On one side is lake Itasca, and the other is the Mississippi river/stream.
Lake Itasca and the beginning of the Mississippi
Since my friend, Boomr, lives in New Orleans (the base of the Mississippi) and I didn't get him anything for his birthday, I decided to send him a belated present. It should be getting to you in about 90 days, Boomr.
My little gift to Boomr.
