2023, Outward

Well, oh yes, this is simply a year-out post to the year 2023 and is a welcoming to, you’ve guessed it, the following year. This post will also reveal some things I just see ahead for the new year…

Au Revoir, Aunt Sandy

Yes, this post is indeed dedicated and is a tribute to my beloved maternal aunt, Sandra, who did pass away just a few days ago, when she was only 57. Aunt Sandy was both my mom and my other aunt, Sue’s, younger sister. My father, brothers, and I had not actually seen her since my grandmother, Lainie’s, funeral service trip, one decade ago in June (she passed away on May 2nd of that year). Yeah, it is normal to not see your aunts that often, yet mom, on the other hand, still had indeed seen her since then. Poor Sandy […]

Bowling Up Buildings

Yeah, in earlier posts, I have considered how building have gotten demolished and replaced with newer tenant ones. However, in THIS post, I will consider TWO such events occurring. First things first, you have heard of Starbucks Coffee, right? How about the grocer chain Aldi? Well, neither of them are now leaving Whitewater. In, fact it is the polar opposite; both of them are currently, to have replaced older Whitewater buildings. Actually the Aldi’s is to replace a building that once houses an apartment area AND a bowling alley (one which I mentioned in an earlier post)… …yes, the Hawk […]

A Departing Off The Old Block

Well, this actually was posted 8 years ago, so you perhaps do not remember it, but in an old post of mine, I considered the Calvary Lutheran Church getting replaced with an apartment building named The Element. THIS one will consider a very similar situation that actually occurred on the same street, but at a corner. Now, what actually got replaced with an apartment building HERE was a former funeral home. It was first built as an Italianate house in 1873 (this year would have been its 150th anniversary). Well, that building actually had a Then, one day in September […]

A Darkened Sky Park…Twice

Have you ever headed out for a stargazing trip? Whether it was a solo trip, or with your family or anyone else you know at all? Well, my father and I have done so, twice, not too long ago, even if the skies were not that great for it both times… Ellison Bay, Wisconsin is located further up past the city of Green Bay, near the tip of Wisconsin’s northeast pointing strip (if you are not aware of what I mean, I fairly simply suggest peaking at the state on a there map or it as a clipart image). In […]

Better Lake Than Never

First things first, I have just been into separate internet thins once more as I had been when I typed up my 10th Anniversary, and I am just continuing fresh from here now. So yeah, I largely apologize for all of that as well, but, I truly will get going on weekly posts each weekend again from here on out, so Hakuna Matata. Anyway, remember that “Lake or Marsh” post I typed up nearly two years ago? Well, unfortunately, the lakes now have only PARTIALLY returned to how they initially were. Just how that is so? Well, I would be […]

10th Anniversary Post

Yes, this post’s title is accurate, my website first launched and had its first ever post (a tiny, introductory one) published exactly one decade ago today! Now, I believe just at least ONE of you would like a tale on how my website was all formed. And I believe this post is exactly the correct one to consider that on… At some point in the early 2010s, as I had been liking other children’s websites earlier, my dad actually suggested giving me a website of my own. He considered posting games and other stuff like that on it. Although the […]

Citgo to Casey’s

You remember how two posts ago, I considered how business are able to go through name and owner change? Well, I will consider just another situation like that in THIS post as well… Until just a couple years ago, there were two Citgo fuel stations in my community (similar to the future two Kwik Trips). One was located on Main street, just across the road from Wal-Mart. The other was also on Main street, but on the inverse side of town, not far at all from the elementary school which I attended. The convenience stores and fuel were both fine. […]
