No, we're not sharing our favorite lines from A Christmas Story ...
We're hard at work making decisions for 2012.
Yesterday's critical topic of debate was which fudge flavors to add to our line-up for the 2012 introduction of Happy Halloween Weekends.
We take our fudge flavors quite seriously, you see. Lots of research goes into even the tiniest decision.
Pumpkin Pie? Apple Pie? Hmmmm ... better take another nibble. Or two.
... plus we can't resist the opportunity to give our staff a little sugar.
Nathan brought a video camera along to the tasting and put together this sweet little video:
Your turn now - what other fudge flavors would be good for next year's Halloween event? I promise to pass along your ideas ...

It was getting close to bedtime for James last night. My second grader had grabbed a good book and made himself comfortable on Daddy's side of the bed. (Stories from the good book, actually.)
It seemed a good time to sneak in for a cuddle, so I slipped in on my side and got ready for the uphill climb.
We have one of those "sleep number" beds. My husband, Gary, would be happy sleeping on a rock, so his side is set at 100 ("You sure it won't go any higher?" he asks me all the time). I prefer a more moderate 45 or 55, so it was a bit of a heave-ho to make it over to James's side.
I smoothly slid one of my arms under the lad's head and the other I placed lightly across his belly. Not lightly enough, it turns out.
"Mom...the lapbar is too tight."

Not true! Not true!
A queue for Sue?
A queue for Drew?
A queue for who?
(Note: that last word really should be "whom," but it doesn't rhyme. Poetic license.)
A shuttle queue.
For campers who ... ... (ugh!) whose day is through.
Back to Lake Rudolph, whether RV, cabin or tent.
They'll line up here, their energy spent.
One last queue after riding all day.
Then hop on the shuttle and drive away.

Okay, so that's about as dumb a subject line as I've ever conjured up ...
But if you've been dancing around putting off ordering your 2012 Season Passes, yet you want to purchase them at the lowest possible rate ... you've got till Sunday night to do it.
Sunday night, as in October 9, at 11:59 pm CDT.

Once the second hand clicks to Monday, the prices go up.
Bettye, whom you may have met if you've stopped by Holiday Foods here in town, already has hers.
She asked me about when they would go on sale a number of weeks ago and I promised (and actually remembered!) to have a flyer mailed to her.
The next time I stopped by for groceries, Bettye happily proclaimed she'd already received her vouchers in the mail.
We ended up laughing so hard, we sort of held up the check-out line
You see, Bettye buys season passes for her family as Christmas presents every year. She told me she'd informed her daughter, "If anything happens to me -- the season pass vouchers for you and the grandkids are in the bottom drawer of my nightstand."
Her daughter, of course, was horrified.
"Mom! What do you mean, if anything would happen to you?"
Bettye and I cackled like a couple of hens at the thought of being on our deathbeds and drawing our loved ones near for one final, loving conversation: My darlings, be good to one another and know that I love you. And don't forget, your season pass vouchers are in the bottom drawer.
