If you've read Isaac's last blog you may need some explanation as to what he was referring to when he mentioned I had run off to the Islands...
You see, one of the great benefits of being self-employed is the flexibility in your schedule. Sort of. That only applies if you can hire an awesome staff that can fill in for you when you want to get away (Thanks Katie, Jeanne, and Jess!). So I took an extended weekend and went to Middle Bass Island with Isaac's grandma Krieger and the rest of the women on that side of the family. The best part about this trip is that it was all organized by Isaac's Grandma Krieger, and she made the stipulation that there were to be no men, and no children. What could I do? I couldn't decline this invitation from Isaac's Grandma! So he was left home with the children, for my second trip up to the Lake Erie Islands this summer.
One of the reasons for this annual trip to Middle Bass is the Barbershop Quartet singers that have gathered there every August for 65 years. Grandma has been a loyal follower for many of those years, and her grandchildren have reaped the benefits from many trips to Middle Bass Island. This year, we stayed at the Middle Bass Inn.
