Trip Back to Old Stomping Grounds
It has been awhile since posting anything since we haven’t done much. But I will now be posting our activities here in Manitowoc. We have been keeping somewhat busy going to different things in the area. While it may not be as exotic as overseas it is still a adventure.”
Back to Wausau
So a couple weekends or so (lose track of time) we drove back to Wausau. Our great friends let us crash at their place for 3 nights. We wanted to see them as well as others we have missed.
When Karen and Lee Hamerly heard we were coming back for a visit they had a cook out and pool party Saturday, so we could all get together. Karen is our old neighbors (Larry and Eunice)daughter so then we were able to see them too.
Here is Karen and Lee and then, Larry and Eunice, and then Larry and Eunices son and wife Ken and Lisa.
And here is their family including Dottie. She is the furry gold one.
Unfortunately the weather, being Wisconsin, did not cooperate. It was foggy, misting and only 59 out. But Lee having a great setup on the pool had the wood fire going and the pool was a toasty 95. Lee, Karen, Megan and I were the only ones brave enough to go in and it was great.
Megan had fun doing her belly flops in the pool. And it made quite a splash.
In all we had a great visit with everyone. We went out with Rick and Sue to some of our favorite spots. Carmelos on Friday night, then Sunday wings for lunch at The Bar, followed by some great steaks at Rick and Sues. Monday morning we went for breakfast at Razzes bar. Great biscuits and sausage gravy. Then it was time to say goodbye to Rick and Sue.
We stopped by Larry and Eunice on the way out to say goodbye and to see the old homestead. Totally disappointed in the realtor who was selling our house. Don Hall from Assist to Sell. He told me he would have the pool winterized but never did. It is now all green and scum and the pump is probably no good because he left it in the snow and ice. And never did sell the house. However that wasn’t totally his fault all though we don’t feel he tried that hard. But the bank also won’t let him accept one of the offers he had. It was for $90,000, we owned 91,000 on it, but the bank said they would not take less than 105,000. They can make more if they foreclose on it and then sell it for any price and collect insurance for their loss. So our house is still sitting empty.But to end on a good note it was great going back and seeing everyone we could.
