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.

It’s National Little Red Wagon Day, What Does That Mean? [VIDEO]

Did you have a little red wagon as a child?  I had one, but it wasn't a Radio Flyer, it was generic.  Kinda like I got Hydrox chocolate sandwich cookies instead of Oreos.  Deprived, I know!  The Radio Flyer company has a day designated as "little red wagon day" and for a very good reason.
