A droll and amiable chronicle of retirement, friendship, mishap, fish, and three good dogs on Wisconsin's scenic Door peninsula. Open this book and you are in Door County, Wisconsin, strolling down Coot Lake RoadŅa one-lane, dead-end gravel track just a few miles from Baileys Harbor and the Lake Michigan shore. Along the way you meet George and Helen O'Malley, who are growing old gracefully. Russell, their brave and empathetic golden retriever, wags hello and offers you a paw to shake. The Olsons and the Berges live just down the road. Bump Olson is the local septic tank pumper and birdwatcher extraordinaire, and Hans Berge, MD, PhD., was at one time the only Norwegian psychiatrist in ChicagoŅor so he says. In a cottage out by the highway, you may spot Lloyd Barnes, ex-Tennessee state trooper, hound fancier, and local man of mystery. Uncle Petter Sorenson, visiting from Grand Forks, takes the polar bear plunge at Jacksonport. Around the neighborhood you'll meet Deputy Doug, the flirtatious cellist Debbie Dombrowski, and Italian import Rosa Zamboni. Dave Crehore's sketches of life on the Door peninsula also expound on: the delights of codfish pizza how to insult Canadians what to expect at your fiftieth high school reunion how to lose a school board election the prevention of creeping old-fogyism Marilyn, a buxom eight-pound smallmouth bass and what goes on in the winter, when no one is there. Portrait of author Dave Crehore is a longtime resident of northeast Wisconsin and a retired writer and photographer for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. His first book, Sweet and Sour Pie, was also published by the University of Wisconsin Press.
