Lost Local & Other Amusement

One of my favorite pals here in Fawnskin is Karin, so when she called to tell me she was on her way up from Miller Park to help me transport my piping hot pie to the monthly NSIA potluck–and then didn’t show up for what seemed like ages, I was perplexed.

Now, the bad news was that the pie was not done, but the good news was the persimmon cookies were. When Karin finally arrived we both had a chuckle, she turned left instead of right on Brookside and ended up making a big loop around Fawnskin until she arrived at my house.

In case you don’t know, I am a very short drive from the park but have to say that I am glad to know that I am not the only one that does silly things around here.

However, I tend to know the streets pretty well since I amble through most of the roads around these parts.

How about you? Do you know how to navigate Fawnskin?

Fawnskin Realty
Andy Campbell told me last week that he is retiring (I will believe it when it actually happens…LOL) but I needed to hold off posting until he made an announcement at the Fawnskin Chamber meeting. So far his plans are to close the office.

The nice building has a conference room, has ample parking, and is located right on North Shore Drive. It will likely be put up for lease if you know of any business or artist that might be interested in renting the place.

Andy and Rita are planning on doing more traveling. Both take time to write about their adventures and since Andy is such an amusing tale teller, it will be interesting to see what develops.

Well, Well
The well behind Fawnskin Realty is about half done as I discovered last week when I talked to Bill on my way to the Post Office. Of course, I had to take breaking news action shots…

Wood Workout
So, GG took delivery of her wood on Saturday and then hustled to see if she could get it all off the deck before the next storm hit.

I always like Solano’s wood service because he has clean, well maintained vehicles, usually gets back to you right away and then calls to confirm, gives you a time window for delivery, and then calls if he is going to be late.

It isn’t any wonder he is doing well around these parts and it was good to see him again.

As for the wood guy who made arrangements to deliver, and then told me it was going to be a few more days after I had waited ten–well, word is that his subcontracting work to the main guy was terminated over it.

And, locally–Tony has been on it. He’s checked in with me twice to see if I needed him to bring some wood over. He has about 20 cords of pine available still.

If you are so inclined–catch him at Moose Lodge 2085.
