Cheese, Anyone?!


I met Dick outside a restaurant and winery called Vino in the Valley about 11 miles from Maiden Rock, Wisconsin. He was distributing samples of his cheese while extolling their virtues.  He has a shop in The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota.  Originally from Stevens Points, Wi he's still a Packer Backer!

  5. You have to be a true fan to wear that hat.

  6. I am glad to see a family farmer, small businessman and vintner. It is refreshing to read your different type of report from Wisconsin than the political news from Wisconsin that has been all over cable TV lately.

  10. I figured he had to be a cheesehead...no one else would go about like this! Did you try his cheese? Hopefully, not from that stuff on his head!

    He does give headcheese a whole new meaning!

  11. Your comment reminded me of how when I was in Junior High I left school. When the truant officer caught me, I told him I wanted to be a cartographer. So he carted me right back to 8th-grade English, period 2. (That's when English classes were called English classes and not Language Arts which is a misnomer if there ever was one.)


    Disclaimer: The first part of the above story is totally false. I never skipped school and I wouldn't have known what a cartographer did in those days. In those days I didn't even know what a photographer was. Well, maybe, but it's hard to remember that far back. That's why it's more fun just to make things up.

    Now, if this should appear in some tell-all blog, I'll be very upset. :-)))

  14. Almost every time my husband goes to the MOA, he stops by Rybicki Cheese and buys this really stinky German cheese that only he likes.

  15. This cracks me up. It seems so classically midwestern to me. And every time I've seen a photo of someone wearing one of these they're grinning.

  16. I guess this is what you call a cheesehead! I guess mainzdailyphoto has never heard of Green Bay. I hope you enlightened her/him.
