"I am so home sick to see the ice caves of a thousand shardes of blue on my beach. I wish I was there but hearing of all the rain is not pleasant. I am sure we will get back at least once this winter. Can't wait for your troop to get there and…"

Chris, the sewer is in. They did a neat job in early November. I still have to wire it and connect t water meter to the well per city requirement. We were visiting Janine's dad in Lake Placid, FL last week. The weather there was better than Indiana. Our lake here is frozen over. See you in May. Greg
Hi Chris! I am leaving on the 20th to start my job in Columbia, SC. If I get a chance in summer of 2010 I will try to connect in Mackinaw City. I do so love the City and Island! Brings many good memories to my mind. I will really miss my family in Michigan though with this move. There are no jobs in Michigan so I have to go where I know I have work. This is painful to go before the holidays but I guess with SKYPE/OOVOO we can still see and hear everyone. Take care and have a safe a blessed Holiday!
Hi Chris Ann! Not much on school right now. This being the first holiday season after Erik's passing, I'm mostly just trying to keep my head and those of my family above water. How are you and the rest of the family? Are you in Florida yet?
Thanks for the note. Jeanine did the walk and she, well, took her time. I think she was about 14th in her age group. The important thing is that she enjoyed the walk and didn't finish last!
It was wonderful to meet you and I'll look forward to our next visit when we can spend more time talking. We had such a great visit and it's always hard to leave. The good news is we're planning our next visit already! Mike
We leave Saturday and will spend the night in Atlanta. On the island by Monday around lunch - at least that's the plan. It's beautiful here in Georgia this morning too. The lake is calm (I missed the sunrise). See you soon.
I was a Coast Guardsman assigned to the Mackinac Island Life Boat Station 1958-1960. The Station is now the Visitors Center. While living on the island for near 2 years, I met many wonderful Islanders, worked for the City, and rode saddle horses for…Continue
