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 headed for the in laws dairy farm. Milking cows since the 80's. The trade war that Trump is creating isn't treating the 230 acre farm well. 

We will steer clear of the, How's the operation going question", as to not open any wounds. This is the in laws
were talking about. It is best to keep your head low, and keep your answers to a few words. Just kidding! Or am I? Any way you dice it, leaving the State along with my wife and twin boys, has created unintended tension. I think that is common, so I won't expound on that.

Basically, anything I say or allude to about the in laws can and will be used against me, forever. Or, until that awe ha moment, where they discover I wasn't so bad after all. Which, I would like to believe is the current thought in their minds. Now, as I move out of these choppy waters...

Anywho, I am excited potentially beyond thier understanding to visit their farm and be back in Wisconsin again. I enjoy my wifes family's company. I enjoy being on the farm. Checking out the rolling hills, animals, and sunrises. I am also hoping to scope out some future places to call home. I have an open mind and may do some investigation for the few days I am back.
