Meet the Unhuggables of the Forest is a fabulous family event hosted by Citizens to Preserve Black Hawk Park Foundation and co-sponsored by the Sierra Club Eagle View Group. The annual event is an absolute delight featuring a variety of forest animals and the qualities that make them unhuggable/huggable and lovable/unlovable. My family attended for the first time this year and WOW! I was impressed. So were the three of my sons (ages 7, 4 and 2) that joined me.

This month was my month to co-host my antique club with my friend, Abby. We decided to use the Hauberg Center in Rock Island for our monthly meeting.
When my friend, Mary Kay, came to visit last weekend from Minnesota, I thought the best place to enjoy the beautiful fall weather was in Rock Island at the Black Hawk State Historic Site, a hardwood forest in the middle of an urbanscape. As a teenager, I had spent many hours in those woods exploring with my friend, Mary, who lived in Watch Hill. We knew the trails like the back of our hand.
