Flying Away with Sammy - One Spoiled Cat and honoring Easy



Hi Pals,

This post is to honor Easy of https://easyweimaraner.wordpress.com/, suddenly crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge recently.  Easy wanted to do a Fly Away with Sammy of https://onespoiledcat.wordpress.com/.  They wanted to fly around the world to visit all of our blogging friends.   We would LOVE to have them visit us in Green Bay, WI.   Here's why:


First off, the city of  Green Bay, Wisconsin is the home of the Green Bay Packers Football Team. While they aren't doing all that great score wise this year, they are known all over the world and have won  4 Super Bowls, in 1966, 1967, 1996, and 2010.   We are proud of them as they are the only big-league professional football team that is owned by shareholders many of whom live in Green Bay.

For you history buffs, Green Bay is the oldest city in Wisconsin.   Jean Nicolet founded a small fur trading post in 1634 on the Fox River.  From there it grew into the City Of Green Bay.   The city restored many of the original buildings of that first settlement on the Fox River shore and turned it into a Living History Museum, which then became a  State Park - Heritage Hill State Park.  This is a picture of the first court house:



So Sammy, we hope you will choose to visit Green Bay, Wisconsin.  But, you'd better hurry cuz winter is just around the corner (M says).    (Looks up to sky to see if Sammy is coming yet.)   I think I see him way off in the distance.    

Your pal,

Mario


P..S. M here:  Sending big HUGS to Sammy's humans.   We know how tough it is, and we will miss that little precious boy also.

Hi Mario

Green Bay seems like a really cool place (literally). Good luck to the University of Wisconsin Badgers in the B1G Championship, too. I know Sammy and Easy will have a good time visiting you.

Mario, it was nice of you to give Sammy a tour of Green Bay. I've never been to a football game, but if ever I went to one, I'd want it to be in Lambeau field.
