My family kind of dared me to take this photo. I don't know, I guess for some reason they didn't think I would. Anyone walking a dog needs to have it on a leash and also pick up after any mess it makes. I'm assuming it's like that in most places now. I guess as a reminder they have these Mutt Mitt containers set up in various places around town. Many people just use plastic shopping bags but these say they are degradable which would be better for the environment.

Here's another one I took at the Lineman's Rodeo. This is one of the two water towers in town. It's amazing how dirty it gets on the underside. You can also see someone going up in the bucket. They were offering bucket rides for anyone who wanted to go up.

This Willow is right near the barn I posted yesterday. I don't know why but these have always been my favorite tree. Not sure which kind this is. While looking it up today I see there are about 350 different species of Willow trees, wow! And here I've always referred to them all as Weeping Willows, guess that's not the case.

So there's no more lifeguard on duty at City Beach on Lac La Belle! Today is the first day of autumn, my favorite season. Cool sweatshirt weather and the changing colors of the trees. They've started to change a bit here. Hope to get out there soon and gets some nice fall color shots.

In case you are not familiar with it those are the first three words in the Girls Scout Promise.
I took a walk through the park the other day and got this picture of the local Girl Scout Troop house. Many area troops hold their meetings and other activities there and share in the cleaning and up keep of the building. Both of my girls have used the building at one time or another. Tomorrow I'll show you where the Boy Scouts meet. Their building is in the same park.

The weekend before last they held Wisconsin's 2nd Annual Lineman's Rodeo in town. It's a competition between area Utility workers. This photo is from the opening ceremony. Each lineman climbed to their spot and then they passed the US Flag up and mounted it on the top of the pole. They then played the national anthem before beginning the competition. We only stayed a short time to see what was involved, take a few pics and check out some of the trucks. It was taking a while before any of the events started and the kids were getting restless and hungry.

Decisions,decisions! Only my second day and I'm already have trouble deciding what to post. lol I've taken many photos over the past week or so to prepare for this blog.
There are quite a few lakes around the area. This is part of Fowler Lake. This was taken from a boardwalk area near downtown. There is a park on the opposite side of the lake. Many people will walk around the entire lake for exercise.
