January 5, 2011 – Happy Birthday to Mark!

OK, it’s not a milestone birthday, but it’s getting close!

Linda surprised me with a couple of great items.  First she made the northern Minnesota wedding/funeral dish, gulumpkes (cabbage rolls).  It was her first time, and they were great and it won’t take 20 years to make them again.

Following up the gulumpkes was a difficult task, but then she rolled out another item suitable for the northland waters – a graphite composite canoe paddle.  This paddle is so light, it feels as though you are holding air.  It will be a nice match to the black and wood trim canoe and should last as long as I do!
