Memorial Day...

It is the 
 not the preacher, 
 who has given us freedom of religion. 
It is the


 not the reporter, 
  who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the


 not the poet, 
who has given us freedom of speech.
   It is the


not the community organizer, 

who has given us freedom to assemble. 

It is the 
 not the lawyer, 
who has given us the right to a fair trial. 
It is the
 not the politician, 

Who has given us the right to vote. 
It is the 
who salutes the Flag, 
It is the 
who serves
under the Flag

As the proud daughter of a Vietnam Veteran I wish you all a peaceful Memorial Day as we remember those who served, and continue to serve our wonderful country.  God bless them all.

How to be a Lake Girl...

First, lets start with how not to be a Lake Girl.  If the photo above is your idea of being a Lake Girl, please think again. We've grown up--no girls camps, communal dining or scheduled activities. There is no 6 AM wake-up call for a real Lake Girl.

If this is your concept of what a lake girl is all about--again, let me dissuade you.  Indoor plumbing, a well stocked bar, a good DSL connection are all missing here.... Yes, there is a lake in the picture, but a flimsy tent by a small body of water is decidedly not the recipe for being a lake girl.


Now, THIS is the lake.  Down at the dock--little row boat bobbing in the waves.  A good book.  Iced tea.  A wet dog or two running about.  Lake Girl becomes a state of mind--kind of a mantra of where we want to be.  So even if you can't quite escape to the lake, you can still wear the Lake Girl look in our darling new clothing line.  Tees for hot, sunny days.  Cozy hoodie sweatshirts for campfires on the beach, and baseball caps for running into town in the convertible.  What more do you need?  

Here's to finding your inner Lake Girl..........Clever Girl is happy to help you find your way.
