Wisconsin Lessons

I'm not a cheesehead yet, but I have registered the car in Wisconsin. Upon my return from ALA Midwinter, I'll do the driver's license adventure. (That will probably be "bloggable.")

Lessons I have learned in Wisconsin:
  • Leather soled shoes do not work well in the winter
  • You can't leave your hairgel in the car. It will freeze, and it is hard to apply when frozen.
  • Cheese curds are good, and not as awful as they sound. I still haven't had fried cheese curds.
I learned the first one painfully when I slipped on a patch of black ice while hurrying to a meeting at City Hall. I slipped, scratched my glasses (since repaired), got a gash on my forehead, and many bruises. Even my dress shoes now have at least a rubber insert. Not good for dancing.......but.

I learned the second lesson the hard way, also. However that lesson is more humorous than anything else.

    Hi Michael! Hope you're enjoying Eau Claire. I recognize that bridge in the picture, and is that building part of UW, or is that the PL?! Say hi to Uncle Ron for me!
