Apologies to anyone who has wondered what the heck is with the lack of posts over the last 2 weeks. The reasons are part business, part pleasure. The business part was the typical, tired old reason: work was kicking my ass (for various reasons.) But the better reason, was that I dragged my family to the middle of Minnesota to meet my brother’s family for a little summertime family fun. “Why Minnesota???” (Everyone asks.) Because it’s the land of 10,000 lakes. Literally. We rented a couple cabins at Craguns Resort, along Gull Lake in the Brainerd Lakes area. It was one of those family run resorts that reminded us of that summer resort in Dirty Dancing. Campfires and s’mores on the beach every night, fishing, swimming, golf, bbq’s and the best…we rented a pontoon boat with an inner-tube to tow. Lemme tell ya…they don’t call ’em party boats for nothin’.
