Who Got Their Grad Pictures Taken At Dean’s Photography In Cloquet?

At the grand opening of CARS (Complete Auto Repair Service) I was wandering around the array of Vipers, antique vehicles and racing cars and ran across what looked to be a surf board with a motor.  It was way too cool not to ask what the heck it was and where could I get one?

Dan Russell has been the Executive Director of the DECC for years. His knowledge of concerts and events is interesting and at times, humorous.

It certainly brought back memories for me and gave me insight to things that happened behind the scenes.

Celebrate The 125th Year Of The First Official Tourist Attraction In Duluth

It's been part of my life from when I very young and use to watch the fireworks display with my mom and dad to when Mr. Anderson our Science teacher took us there to take nature pictures.  As I began to drive, my friends would go there to hang and check out the view.  Now, I use Skyline Parkway for running and often times we choose it as a motorcycle route.  How cool is it that Skyline Parkway is celebrating it's 125th anniversary.  You can be part of the celebration!

Do You Know What This Was Used For?

Do you remember these? I was in Rhineland, WI with my sister at The Vintage Thrift Shop and ran across so many things that took us back to our childhood.
