Sign of summer the first ice cream one at Hoggie Doggie’s one of our favorite ice cream hang outs in Minocqua.  It is a little out of the way 1 mile down Hwy J at the intersection of J and hwy 47.  They also have great sandwiches and brats.  You sit outside so a dog can sit under your feet while you eat if you have fido along in the car which is a nice plus

For kids and slightly crazy moms the cones get eye balls

70 degrees and soft serve ice cream.. yummmmm

Lisa one of the friendly owners you will find behind the counter.  Lisa and her mom keep the place humming with an assortment of others.  Always friendly and good food

Other signs of spring, Troy has the power sprayer out and a pontoon boat

Amazing what accumulates on them over the winter and left over from summer

Craig’s been busy over at Restawhile… I am sure he will get it done soon…. really

Think Linda will notice this?

And speaking of Ms. Linda… have we mentioned her competitive streak in Horseshoes?  Can you see Gloria wondering how she will be able to compete against such a horseshoe legend..

Speaking of Gloria and her partner in crime Rich…. what in the world were they doing here…..
