Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

The Dells
I spent a lot of time in the Wisconsin Dells one summer in college when I was lifeguarding in Madison, WI and dating one of the water skiiers in the Tommy Bartlett Show , about an hour and a half north of Madison, on my days off. My family even came out from PA one week to visit me and stay in a resort.

The Dells are a very All American summer resort. It's got the cheeziness of the Ocean City Boardwalk and Six Flags Amusement Park, mixed with the Midwestern charm of a big lake and summer homes.

Not so this summer. Lake Delton is gone and the water skiiers are literally grounded.

I have very fond memories of that summer, and the Tommy Bartlett show has been operating for more than 50 years. I hope they can refill the lake and rebuild.
