Great pics Yooper...and Merry Christmas.
Paulwebbtroll, hard to remember that this is still only fall, eh ;) And as of tomorrow, the days start getting longer. I never could get used to this central time and the sun setting at three in the afternoon, in December...talk about short days.

Last day of fall, and we are due to lose our lovely cold snowy weather here in the Motown area. Mid thirties and RAIN predicted starting Friday. OOH NO!

Yeah, Yooper, love the pics. I see you got the "little guy" out in the yard! Sharon's cam is up--hooray!

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Little Betsy, Mi. where we live in a Winter Wonderland even though we get only 1/3rd of the snow as Calumet. The Copper Country has 115" of snow measured and counting and it is not even winter yet. Not too many snowmobilers, they may have snow downstate. Mt. Bohemia opens this week for all you daring skiers and snowboarders.

I don't know if Mary will this, but I have a long story from ••••
that might interest some. An otherwise nice lady from New York
sent this to my wife. Two guys from the U.P. die and wake up in
••••. The next day the Devil stops by to check on them and sees
them dressed in parkas, mittens and bomber hats warming
themselves by the fire. The Devil asks "what are you doing?
Isn't it hot enough for you?" The two guys reply: "vell, you know,
we're from nordern Michigan, the land of snow, ice and cold.
We're yust happy to warm up a little bit, you know."
The Devil decides that these two aren't miserable and turns
up the heat. The next morning he stops by again, and there
they are dressed in parkas, hats and mittens. The Devil asks
them again: "It's awfully hot down here; can't you guys feel
that?" Again the two guys reply: "Vell, like we told you
yesterday, we're from nordern Michigan, the land of snow and
ice and cold. We're just happy for a chance to warm up a vee
bit, you know."
This gets the Devil really stirred up so he cranks the heat up
as high as it will go. People are suffering terribly. He stops by
the room with the two guys from Michigan and finds them in
light jackets and hats grilling walleye and drinking beer. The
Devil is astonished. "Everyone down here is in misery, and you
two are enjoying yourself. "Vell," they say, "we don't get too
much varm weather up dere in da U.P., and we've yust got to
have a fish fry when the veather's dis nice."
The Devil is furious! So he decides to turn off the heat
entirely. The next morning the temp. is below zero, icicles are
hanging everywhere, and people are shivering so bad they can't
even moan and groan. The Devil smiles and heads for the room
with the Yoopers. He finds them back in their parkas, bomber
hats and mittens, but they are also jumping up and down,
cheering and yelling like mad men. The Devil is dumbfounded.
"What is wrong with you two," he shouts?
The Michigan men look at the Devil in surprise. "Vell, don't
you know, if •••• freezes over, dat must mean da Lions von da
Super Bowl."
