A Friday road trip…

 …finds the Professor traversing the trails of central Wisconsin.

First stop was in Chippewa Falls: a rendezvous with K, a dear old friend:

After a most agreeable chat, I found myself back on the road, ending up in the alpine hamlet of Mount Horeb for an art and craft sale in the city’s restored schoolhouse:

On the top floor my blog-pal Shoshanah was holding court with her fantastic art:

As well as her freaky books:

We were serenaded with an Amy Winehouse Christmas carol:

While Little Z  Big Z pondered stories of Shoshanah’s reckless youth:

And I couldn’t forget the Fleecy Fab Four:

UPDATE! The next day I had the honor of breakfasting with Shoshanah and Big Z. Afterwards, when Z went to play at a friend’s house, SLM and I explored The Cat and Crow, a local Yarn store:

Where I picked up a gift (knitting bag as demonstrated above) for the Weaver!

A fitting knitting end to a great trip:

You know, you're doing this internet stalker thing all wrong. You're supposed to keep it secret! That's like stalking 101.

Thanks for coming. It was fun.
