Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her second year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 16 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

You've heard of those mock turtlenecks called a"dickey"? Well, these are my boot dickeys! My friend Coleen crocheted these darling boot cuffs for me and I LOVE THEM!  They are the only ones I own and I hate to ask her to make me more since I know her time is precious.  I have no idea how to crochet but went on a search to find a video on how to do it.  I think I've got it!

Salami Cutting Deli Worker Guilts My Husband Into Buying More Than We Need [AUDIO, VIDEO]

 

My family LOVES salami, absolutely LOVES it.  We get it sliced thin and buy 1/4 pound at a time so it doesn't spoil and go to waste.  At least that's the way we bought it, until my husband was pressured into buying more!  You'd think at our age we wouldn't feel so obligated, but I guess it just proves that he really is a nice guy with compassion for others....yes, I'm still talking salami.

Attending Family Volunteer Day Will Benefit Your Family AND The Community

Looking for a way your family can give back to the community?  My daughter Kylee and I use to ring Salvation Army red kettle bells.  Then as she got older we moved to wrapping gifts, soon we were volunteering our time at several events that helped the Second Harvest Food Bank.  It was a great learning experience as the seed to continue volunteering was planted so many years ago.  If you don't know where to start, I can help!
