     Way back in September 26, 1985, when my husband and I had been visiting in northwestern Minnesota for about 5 days at my long-time friend, Susan Jones' home, Dave indicated that he was going to the eastern portion of Minnesota.  I had no idea what it would be like, and I knew that a day or so later we needed to be at his mom's place in the Twin Cities for a special time with piles and piles of the family situation there. Dave had  been born and raised in the Twin Cities area and had been up and around that whole area when he was a kid and in his upper teens.  I hadn't known much of that, though.  Anyhow, I wasn't sure of anything, but just was with him and that's all that counted for me.
     WELL, things changed and were absolutely wonderful!  Since I had been a kid and raised for years in the western portion of Washington and seeing a lot of the Mount Rainier, the Pacific Ocean, the Puget Sound, and the Columbia River, and lots of hills and trees, he was taking me to a portion of Minnesota and Canada to make me smile.  There wasn't a mountain, BUT the hills were so high and so much on them and the rivers and the huge lake it was so much I'd seen when I was a kid in Washington.  Anyhow, he put me in and winked and were in that area on Friday and Saturday, and until late on Saturday we were into the Twin Cities area to his mom's home. Sunday would be a huge gift of people for us.
      Anyhow, I'll just share the pictures.    Lake Superior looked like an ocean much of the time and made me smile.  And in the area of Thunder Bay, Ontario.  So, it grabbed my heart.  Worth a smile!

Dave is such a thoughtful man and a generous husband to you. He so much desired for you to view these hills and water to make you smile and happy. The twin city visit was a blessing also. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a True Story.
