One of my favorite things to do in Brookfield…

…is to drive 35 mph, the posted speed limit, on Calhoun Road between Gebhardt and Bluemound. You’re in for a treat especially when you are traveling south down the hill.

People pass you at about 45 or 50 mph. Sometimes they honk if they think they’re boxed in and can’t pass. If you really stick to your speed and the car next to you happens to be driving 40 or so, when they finally get around you they extend a middle finger in greeting!

Ah. Life in gentle Brookfield where all the laws are obeyed.
