This is your basic frivolous blog post in the middle of a bitter winter. For years, this illustration graced the back want-ad pages of the Post-Crescent and was flanked by ads for vacation spots around the state- motels, inns, resorts, etc. It was the illustration for your "Northeastern Wisconsin Vacation Guide." Those days seem distant now, but if nothing else, the anticipation of the warmth and lure of the inevitable summer may help steel yourself to get through the remainder of the cold season.
