We celebrated our 28th anniversary this past weekend with HaRVey the RV at Perrot State Park.

It was a great weekend due to the location of the park near golfing, kayaking and some great entertainment. All the things we like to do while camping. We attended Saturday "Music under the Stars" at Trempealeau Hotel. Only  a couple of miles from the park entrance this venue has some great tunes. Just bring your own chair and you can sit outside with a view of the Mississippi River and watch geese fly overhead while enjoying a little libation.

As luck would have it, on our anniversary date, the band "Blind Baby Olin and the Workbenches" was playing at the hotel. They played at our wedding, so we had to do some reminiscing. We were hoping they would play "Stand By Me", our wedding song, so we could have one dance. It didn't happen so we adopted a new "Our Song", this one maybe more appropriate after so many years, " You Can't Always Get What You Want" by the Stones.

Okay you're probably wondering about the giant marshmallows. After seeing so many funky things on display by campers, I had to come up with my own folly. Of course it had to be handmade. The sticks are paper wrapped around large garden stakes and sprayed to look like wood. This was so I wasn't importing wood into quarantined areas. The marsmallows I constructed from garden pots and hot glued vinyl around them. Then I painted them to look a little toasted.

The creative juices just kept flowing around the campfire. Here's my new line of Loggage.
