We Are Back!
We are back! Mama went camping in the North Woods of Wisconsin and left us here at Chez Cat, which is a good thing because she was living outside, sat by the campfire, and didn’t shower very much. We’re glad we stayed home with the catsitter. Really.
Anyway, she went to some crazy animal place where she got to touch goats, pigs, dwarf bunnies, and worst of all, give a prairie dog a tummy rub. Don’t believe us? Here’s video proof:
One really cool part of her trip was that she went to an old German lodge in Manitowish Waters, which is near Minocqua. It’s called “Little Bohemia” and apparently John Dillinger hid there and had a shootout with the FBI. The room is preserved and you can see all of the bullet holes and cracked plaster. Here’s some pics.
This is where they filmed part of the movie “Public Enemies” with Johnny Depp. There were pictures and posters of him and a lot of memorabilia for sale. The food was really good, too.
Her week was mostly visiting with her parents, who work at the campground that they stayed at, talking by the campfire, eating too much food and drinking wine. At night she was serenaded to sleep by the loons. We’re not sure this would be a vacation that *we* would have chosen, but at least we weren’t packed off to the vet!
Anyway, we missed everyone and mama hit the evil “Mark All As Read” button on her Google Reader because there were too many posts, so forgive us if we don’t get around to everyone. We’ll be bcak tomorrow for Femme Friday!
