Looking Down the Road

You know the road that leads from M-25 to Grindstone Corners, our little neck of the woods? It was a dirt and gravel road.

Our Little Piece of Heaven, and a dirt road.

Dirt roads are...dirty.

Now that Rybak’s Ice Cream store is open again, Grindstone Corners has come alive. Ann Fisher is the proprietress of this historic and delicious establishment, and people come from all over for the high quality ice cream, the pleasant surroundings and the friendly atmosphere.

Not sure why the church icon is out in the lake, but it’s pretty cute anyway. OMG! The FISH in Grindstone city are as big as a HOUSE!!!

Rybak’s isn’t on the old map, but it is the place to hang this summer.

We all scream for ice cream!

Come on up- the people are warm and the ice cream is cold, and the road is PAVED!
