Big Cheese Country...Wisconsin...or the Big Cheesy



Valley Ridge Artist Studio in Wisconsin is coming up in a few weekends. So if you've been holding off from signing up...now is the time.Those who have never been...it is one of my favs. Bill and Kathy are the ultimate hosts and will even host "cow tipping" escapades
...well...not really....but they might if you asked nicely. They have a great property and with views to die for. Always a lovely selection of regional cheese...ask nicely and I'll bet they let you cut the cheese. Well maybe not


Hey speaking about cheese and beef...here is a question...who came first...Mayor McCheese
or H.R. Pufinstuf.
Have you ever n
otice how McDonaldland
looks strangely like the land of Freddie the Flute, Witchie Poo, and Jimmy....

come and sail with me, Jimmy, come and sail with me.
You compare and let me know what you decide...coincidence? or not?

Anyway...sorry for the digression....,

hope to see some of you in Wisconsin. I'll be teaching deMented Toys and the Mad Alchemist's Cabinet. Oh...and I'm going to be visiting a nifty place while...I'm there. More on that later. If you still want to sign up for classes go here and we can talk about art, Hamburglers, and other things. Click here to join the fun.

Wow - flashback city, HR Puff-n-stuff :) Have fun in The Big Cheesy, take it easy on the cows!

Julie said...

I'm not going to cheat and Google it....it was the McDonald's clan, first, right?

Debrina said...

Oh My Goodness - you're right! Hmmm...now my fond memories of HR PuffnStuff are becoming slightly tainted....
So anyway, when are you going to come to New Zealand to teach us your magic?

seriously, i remember watching HR puffnstuff when i was a kid. what about Sigmund the seamonster? anyone remember him? Banana Splits?

cindy shake said...

I'm guessing HR Pufnstuf... Jummy's little talking flute freaked me out. But the Banana Splits rocked -their dune buggy was waaaaay cool. Geeze it's rough showing our age :o)

*When you're in Wisconsinland you'll need to buy one of those large foam cheese wedge hats!

I don’t know! Well maybe it’s just a coincidence. I can’t really tell.

Manila Homes said...

Hahaha! This is a good one, it keeps your readers think of the possibilities. Well for me I think not. Maybe the producers are the same person. Or maybe the other one just like to mimic the other. You’ll never know! Have a nice day!

I agree, I think my childhood memories have become a bit tainted too.

How odd, I have never noticed such similarities before, wow!
