Ah, yes, George Webb.

There's a nice one in Oconomowoc, and a lot of other places, I imagine.

From ages 4-15, I lived near the old Milwaukee Zoo, Washington Park area.  Attended Steuben Jr. High and Washington H.S., until we moved to the 'burbs in the early '60s.  I did marry a Nathan Hale grad, though.

Most of my old landmarks are gone.  We had our wedding reception at the Black Steer--Walgreen's now.  And, speaking of West Allis, I'd give a lot for a pizza from Zulli's.  And, does Chicken Delight still deliver? Oh,Oh, food memories again.

Guess what, Poms?
I grew up in Milwaukee, too (mostly, anyway).  I miss it a lot.  I'd love to know more about the house you're talking about.  Off and on, I'm writing a book based on growing up in Milwaukee.  When I get it into some kind of shape, you can read some if you want to.

Wisconsin is great

I have lived in Flo. Alabam. and Ark. and I always want to come home to WI. I also lived in Milwaukee. You cant beat the lake frount or I dont know if you know about the witches house as she was called when I was a kid. she had all kinds of carvings her husband carved for he befor he died. they looked like real people turned to wood and stone. That is how she got the name. If I can find a pic of her place I will post it for all to see.

WI. is the best.

It is a nice place,

at least I think so.  We've lived in New Mexico and Oklahoma, and I missed Wisconsin all the time I was in OK.  NM with the mountains . . . not so much, it's beautiful there.

I think wild rice has been here since the Native Americans cultivated it a long time ago.

The art in my blogs is by John William Waterhouse.  I love his work, and certain images are out of copyright, so I'm able to use them.  I'll work on putting the title on each painting.

Thanks for reading, Ms. Tinycommentspace!

I think it would be a nice place to grow up. Don't I get my wild rice from your marshes. By-the-way, the girls on your blog are so beautiful or girl? Who is she? Have a great week-end.J
