My friend Lisa got married last July and moved to Duluth, MN. I wanted to get in a visit before it got so cold up there in the Northern most parts of Civilization.
She used to tell me that she was a terrible cook but has completely proven herself to be a fabulous cook - she made me a fantastic Salmon dinner as well as a very nice Chicken dinner. But of course it is tradition to have pizza and cookie dough so we managed to squeeze that in too.
New Noses - well long ago we had a similar picture but with glass eyeball marbles. This type of thing is tradition.
And surprisingly we had a beautiful day "on the beach" - well we at least walked along the water front of Lake Superior. It was 81 that day!
