I’m always looking for a good “outdoor adventure” book or audio-book, I have not had much luck lately until I discovered Grandma Gatewood’s Walk on Audible.

The Simple Hook

For how long has this simple hook held a door. This hand wrought iron hook at Old World Wisconsin is one of many small details I really enjoy seeing when I visit. Is it original or was this made onsite by the blacksmith. Either way the stories the hands could tell that made this, would […]
