I spent the week between Christmas and New Year's in Leeland Michigan with Linda Lindquist and Buddy of course. It was nice being with good people in a beautiful small town.
The day I arrived, the wind kicked up from the South at about 40 knots so you could hear the roar of the lake from the house which is about a 1/4 mile inland.
On another day the snow came again and we went for a walk around town.
Linda and Buddy go for a walk at least once a day and everyone gives Buddy pats and treats.
On New Years I was included with a table of 17 at the River House for a 5 course meal. My choices - Oysters on the 1/2 shell and champagne, Wild mushroom bisque, berry sorbet, lamb medallions with roasted vegetables and a poached pear with sabayon.
