Dave taking MORE pictures!

 

#1 Things To Do This Week

Take Pictures

 

I know it's not the prettiest time of the year and that is exactly why you should consider spending time in Galena taking pictures.  

You will be challenged to find just the right shot

Being overcast most of the time you will have perfect lighting

You will get a lot of exercise walking around

So, call to make you reservation today for this week, mention "Photography" and receive 10% off!

#2 Try at Shake and Burger at Durty Gurts Restaurant

#3 Pizza for Dinner at Procento's Pizza - uhm excellente

#4 Walk the soggy 3 mile walking path - Riverviews at one point on the path

#5 Shop - anywhere, just shop!

#6 Coffee - when you are tired from all the shopping - enjoy the Coffee Shop

We haven't had any snow lately so we have officially discontinued our special classes 

"Snow Shoveling 101, 201 and 301"

Sorry, but maybe you can get in on it next year!

The good news is we are now taking reservations for our next series, back by popular demand

"Window Washing 101 through 501"

Just Kidding You Know!:)

 

 

Recipe Highlight

Orange French Toast

It's so simple

 

Scramble up a few eggs

Add some milk to loosen it up

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp Orange Rind

1/2 cup Orange Flavored Liquor or Orange Juice

 

Mix all that up, dip some Texas toast in there and put it on the griddle!

 

 

 

Next Week I Begin My New Series

"What Makes Me Happy"

 

It should be fun and perhaps a few suggestions will stand out to you!

Happy Birthday Dave!

Posted by on in Stillman Inn Blog

Yes It Is True...on March 17th, 2011
Dave will be 65 years old!
"Happy Birthday My Sweetheart"

Dave has the Dick Clark thing going on and no one ever believes him when he shares his age.

He is a terrific husband, friend, father, carpenter, innkeeper, Christian, my goodness I could just go on and on about him.

Dave has been successful at many things in his life. He's a hard working and dedicated man. Right now I think his favorite thing is being a Grandpa, "Big Daddy" to Cara Isabella. And we have another granddaughter on the way! One of the things he truly enjoys doing is running the Stillman Inn. If you know Dave, you know he just loves, loves, loves people. His standard greeting is "Hi, I'm Dave, you'll like me, I'm a nice guy" and nothing could be more true. We have met so many interesting and wonderful people and made so many new friends here at the Inn over the past ten years.

Retirement: Yes, it's inevitable. One day I must have Dave all to myself. At some point he must agree to retire but I know he will never leave the inn unless someone else replaces him who is just as genuine as he is. This he would do to honor our repeat guests. We are going to start thinking about selling the place over the next few years. If you know of anyone who is worthy of and interested in taking over the baton, please let us know!


"Where will Dave go" you ask? No problem. We plan on staying in Galena near our grandchildren. The new innkeepers, whoever they end up being, will have our contact information so please, give us a shout and we will be happy to lunch with you! Mind you, we've only just started thinking about it, we aren't going anywhere yet so come see Dave for his Birthday year long celebration!

Proud Wife of Dave Anderson,

Bernadine

Happy Birthday Dave Blog Special: Two night midweek stay in any of our lovely rooms, mention this blog and get a pineapple upside mini cake during your stay. Dave's favorite! Good now through March 17th, 2011
