Not much going on around here, with the exception of getting ready for the upcoming fisheree that the JPD Warrior Project puts on every year. I need to sit down and get a grocery list in order, meat and buns need to be ordered, coffee, hot chocolate, cups, napkins, condiments taken care of, etc... We serve a ton of food that day ... literally! ... chili, hot dogs, hamburgers, bratwurst, baked beans, chips, cookies and bars to name a few AND I need to make pies for the auction. It's too soon to start cooking and baking ~ that all happens the day before and the day of ... but having the shopping part behind us helps.

This Friday we'll be having another committee meeting at my house for the Kid's Carnival that we added to the program this year. We have some really fun things planned for the little ones this year. Like a Fish Toss, the Ice Bowl, Walleye Sucker Tree and Ice Golf ~ to name a few ... and LOTS of PRIZES!!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
when the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with it’s twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
So don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worse
That you must not quit.

If we can help by getting this message out there and it helps save the life of just one person ... mission accomplished!
