You taught us well, Mom

We’re a first class outdoor specialty store, not a greeting card shop.  But, we know a good poem when we read one. And we’re all about value, so we like a good sale.  You taught us well, Mom.

How did you find the energy, Mom
To do all the things you did,
To be teacher, nurse and counselor
To me, when I was a kid.Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 2.01.16 PM..

How did you do it all, Mom,
Be a chauffeur, cook and friend,
Yet find time to be a playmate,
I just can’t comprehend.
I see now it was love, Mom
That made you come whenever I’d call,
Your inexhaustible love, Mom
And I thank you for it all.

Life is great in Wausau, Wisconsin for lucky kids whose mom’s teach them how to ski, camp, paddle, do yoga, ice skate, waterski, bike, roller skate, play tennis, sing, read, cook, plant, paint, care for the environment and care for others.  We personally thank Dorothy, Carol, and all of our moms for all they do for us, and all they have taught us.  Happy Mother’s Day!

THIS is what they want to bring to college

Unknown2730Calling all Badgers, Gophers, Eagles and other academic animals.  There are all kinds of lists telling you what to buy to prepare for dorm living.  (Be sure you bring that fan and some air freshener.)   But when you’ve got your shoe organizer and shower caddy on lock, it’s time to turn your attention to your other must haves.
Luckily, Shep’s has you covered before heading to UW, U of M, Marquette, etc.  Of course everything we stock in our lovely downtown Wausau Outdoor Specialty Store is on your must have list, but these specific goodies regularly go home with the college-bound.  (Check our our Facebook page for coupons and discounts that only our followers know about.  With the savings, you can stock that dorm mini fridge too!)
