Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

SNAPSHOTS: NOW TELL ME YOU DON'T MISS THIS





From "The Old Wilson" photos come these shots, it's an unknown time & place, but the scene is familiar, I wonder how long it took to dig out. I remember one time at the farm taking three days to clear the drive to the road out front. When we drove to town it was a single lane & you couldn't see over either side. I tell everyone, "I didn't lose anything in the snow that I have to go back and look for"!!!!

You're right, Lee! Ya do gotta Luv it. After 25 years living in a trailer and searching out tropical spots for the winters, and 10 years full time in Sarasota, I moved to Canada, where there has definitely been a nip in the air the last few weeks. These photos depict a typical day around here 4-5 months a year. I guess it takes a special love of nature or sense of adventure to appreciate it.

My kind of weather. Not with animal though. If it were not for my pets I would move to Canada so fast!! Colorado reminded me so much of Canada where I spent the best months of my life. I stayed in Colorado 17 years. Went out to cut the grass one morning and the mower was buryed under two foot of snow. Got caught in a snow storm in July in the mountains. You learn to dress to keep worm there. I always kept heavy coats and blankets in the trunk of the car. Bags of trail mix also. You just had to love it. I have beautiful photos of the boat in the Dillon lake with three foot of snow in it.

I'm just wondering what part of Wisconsin these fall pictures were taken in --- you know Wisconsin is called God's Country --- it's as close to heaven as some of us will ever get !

In 1964, Mr. Beatty summoned me to his Billings Hospital bedside, in Chicago, following his first cancer surgery. I took the Cadillac to Rochester, Minnesota, picked up his Airstream, and returned to Chicago. Passing through Wisconsin's rolling hills, with the multi-colored, quilt-patchwork acres of farmland, was among the most endearing sights I've seen in America, in blessed relief of the mission of my journey for the Beatty family.
