We went to the local college's radio station - Pionner 90.1
Karl Hartwich uses the original acoustic instrumentation of traditional bands, but has incorporated more improvisation, more syncopation and novel ideas into traditional Dutchman music. Karl plays a Hengel concertina. He has a seven member band and plays across the country. His drummer is Crystal Malek.
The Bluegrass Festival at Lake Itasca was on Friday, August 7th through Sunday, August 9th, 2009. Were you there! http://www.familybluegrass.com
We went to a Campground in SD for a Poppenhagen get-together.
It rained so much I could have just cried! We had a difficult time having our get-together as we needed to be indoors mostly, but we did see each other through the haze.

We attended the Bluegrass Festival at Lake Itasca on Friday, August 3rd through Sunday, August 5th, 2007 with moms only sister and her husband and her brother from California.
On July 20th we celebrated our parents 40th wedding anniversary. Their actual wedding date was on Sept. 30th, but we wanted to celebrate at this time because our family will be together and we want to have some fun with our neighbors and friends. It is hard to believe that it has been 40 years already, even some of the grandchildren are growing up fast with Olivia already being 7 years old.
We stayed at a resort in the Park Rapids area when Robbie & Stacie were in Minnesota this Summer. We were at Weigelwood Resort on Two Inlets Lake on July 16th - July 18th. http://www.weigelwood.20m.com
We went to Bemidji High School auditorium on Friday Feb. 16th and saw comedian Ken Davis. Ask us if you would like to come over and watch some of his DVDs with us (we love company) or to possibly borrow them.
