The Mrs. Doubtfire Incident

I am sure that most of you remember the Robin Williams movie Mrs. Doubtfire…

Yesterday I cleaned the kitchen in cottage 4 when suddenly something smelled funny and a heat wave came over me.

I was on fire!!!

I had inadvertently turned on one of the burners on the stove with one of my body parts. I won’t say which one, too weird :mrgreen:

Happy weekend all.
The Wayfarer is full with nice people.  Has been for the last 6 weeks.
We have the huge August Art Fair happening tomorrow.
Mike and I took a look around this evening and then ended up at the Coho Cafe for dinner.
It was wonderful, as usual.


Really?  Yes, last Saturday, October 24th, was the last day/night to enjoy a great meal with or without friends at the Coho Cafe’  in Frankfort under Steve’s management.  He sold the restaurant.
Last week we saw the add in the paper, where he offered this quaint restaurant for sale and when I talked with him on Saturday, he told me it had sold.


Steve and Mike

We will miss him although he promised that he would be there for the first year and that he’ll help them through the transition. It will not be the same. But, there’s always room for something new and exciting.  I wonder, of course, how things will change, because in the end I am that creature of habit.

A group of 9 of us went to the last seating for the last of what was in the kitchen and we were not disappointed.  What fun we had, the food was outstanding as usual and the company was great.  The place was stuffed – everyone was there, and in this town – everybody knows everybody, it was a great party.

Farewell to the comfortable and familiar and welcome to a new show in town!

Good Morning Impatiens

I thought you should see how much care we take with some of the adornments around the Wayfarer.

It was really cold night before last.  When the weatherman calls for “overnight temps in the 40’s”, that means that there will be frost around here for sure.

So I grabbed 6 face towels ( I hope the laundry people don’t read here) and 6 stainless steel chopsticks and off I went to cover the impatiens on the front cottages so that they wouldn’t freeze.

Actually these pics were taken in the early morning, just before I uncovered them.

Then later that day, around dinner time, Mike and I decided to go into town and grab a bite at the Coho Cafe, before bringing home 2 pizzas for the boys.

And after dinner, we drove west on Main Street towards the beach where we were greeted by this magnificent sunset

How about them apples?

I wish I could have gotten a better picture but it was too dark.  There were so many boats with their lights on on Lake Michigan, it was so pretty.  Almost like a parade.

The following pictures are from just a few minutes ago, when the fog rolled in across the bluff, I couldn’t resist taking these pictures:
