With Thanksgiving around the corner, we're looking back and giving thanks to all of you for sharing your stores and supporting Wisconsin Life. We couldn't do Wisconsin Life without you and the generosity you demonstrate in sharing your passions with us. 

We're also thinking about all the delicious food that the weeks ahead hold. For Carlotta Calmese, Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without her famous peach cobbler (she tried one year to make something else and a revolt ensued in her family). Or cranberries, a major crop here in Wisconsin that Nodji vanWychen's family has been growing and tending for three generations. When Robert Kennedy's mom passed away, everyone wondered what would happen to the cranberries she always prepared. 

Many families will be heading out to hunt as well during gun deer season. Ron Weber feels a primal pull to the woods and deer camp each fall. Greg Johnson of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa has been hunting his whole life and continues to hunt to preserve a traditional food source. And we can't forget the Springbrook man we met who has the most unusual deer stand we've ever seen.

You don't want to miss the new episode of the Wisconsin Life TV show on November 23rd featuring a special animation from our web comic "Something About A Flower." We're so excited to share Rodney Lambright II's vision with you!

In gratitude,

- Your Wisconsin Life team

Stories We Love

"It smelled weird, I can tell you that. Today the Internet has labeled this particular odor “old book smell,” and book lovers love it. But when I was young, it was just weird." We love libraries and loved this ode to the library from our writer friend and Wisconsin Life regular Mike Paulus.
