South Haven Art Fair— A mellow affair in a park by the lake.

Posted by Nels johnson on July 22, 2019 at 12:41pm 0 Comments

 As I set at a table across from Lake Michigan, munching a great breakfest bagel and reading The NY Times, I reflected on my time doing this show for the past 25 years.

You cannot beat the location.

South Haven is a Lakefront town about 35 miles above the Indiana border.

Krasl Art Festival, St. Joseph, Michigan—Finally, a good show

Posted by Nels johnson on July 19, 2019 at 2:05pm 3 Comments

In this summer of extreme heat, I was wondering how many of us have gone down in heatstroke over the years. It's been a challenge to stay cool this Summer and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon. I was in Des Moines where the heat index got to 111 degrees that weekend, and man, it was a challenge. I have a "frosty' cooler that I swear by. It's the Amazon cheaper version of the Yeti and it kept me hydrated and I have Ryobi fans also, but sometimes it's not enough. I have…
