Knock Knock Turkey Time

I have recently purchased tickets to come back to Wisconsin just before Christmas. Southwest Airlines seems to have the best deal at 69 dollars per flight from Logan airport in Boston to Midway airport in Chicago, and back again. 4 people round trip with taxes for somewhere near 550 dollars. I will be renting a car with National and selecting from the Emerald Isle. Then the 3-4 hour drive to Mineral Point, WI. This is not Door County.

However, I think its crazy to be the Door County Artist who doesn't expand his or her horizons. Staying in Door County exclusively would limit my wild curiosity. Not that you can't live and stay in Door County forever and be awesome. I just need to excuse the fact that I am not there. Nor, will I be traveling to Door County during this trip back to the cheese State.

Hey, there is a pretty good art scene in Mineral Point. You can hardly listen to Wisconsin Public Radio without hearing a "commer
cial" about Mineral Point. I will be heade…

Banjo & Mandolin

Ellie needed to have a tuberculosis test read for her teaching job. The good news is she is tuberculosis free the better news is we decided to buy a banjo and mandolin. These models were at or just over 200 bucks a piece. They are perfect for learning on and have great sound. I have had a desire for awhile to learn banjo. After going to the free bluegrass concert the night before I was inspired to get a couple of working models to learn on. I once purchased a 600 dollar electric acoustic guitar when I was 16. Long story short I never learned how to play it. If I had learned I am sure playing banjo would be a lot easier. Ellie is going to practice on the mandolin. She has some guitar skills. Wish both of us luck!
