What a potpourri from the U.P. the Pasty Cam has become over the years! Following the links "This week in years past" on the main page takes you to every extreme of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, from east to west and north to south. Eight years ago I stood on Swedetown Hill enjoying the view toward the Osceola shaft house, and I believe the Huron Mountains in the distance. Last night my wife and I visited one of those extremes, namely Ironwood, to attend the Junior ROTC awards, where Edie presented Christa Baron with a medal of recognition from the Daughters of the American Revolution. At the end of the ceremony Christa was also named Commander of the group for the coming year.

Edie and Christa
As you make your plans to visit the U.P. this summer, be sure to include a stop in Calumet on July 1st for PastyFest, which will include a parade, pasty bake-off competition, music, and games for the kids. You'll meet other pasty lovers from all over the country (and maybe some from other countries.)

more tomorrow

Good morning!
Yooper I love the graphic. Wish I was enjoying a hammock. I put in a request for one for Mother's Day/My birthday! Then I will put it in my backyard (which happens to be in the #10 summer destination locale) to enjoy the birds singing.
Aw, the good things in life.................

So glad to see one of your graphics again.
Just a couple of hours ago, while out walking
the dog, I got to thinking about how we hadn't
seen one of your graphics on Pasty Cam for
awhile. I was going to place a post entitled,
"Where's Yooper?" Now we know.

By Smfwixom (Trollperson) on Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 08:36 am:

#10 is definitely my only choice for a summer destination!

Yooper,I'd love a hammock but I am afraid if I got in it I'd never be able to get myself out. LOL

Japei, It woud be wonderful to see those different places. Have a great day!

Yooper, I've missed your graphics. They're always so cool. Makes you want to take a nap, doesn't it?

By YooperGal (Daryl) on Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 02:01 pm:

Yooper, that pig needs a blanket thrown over him..
it suppose to snow in the U.P. Too early for it to
be out on the swing!

What's going on at the airport this evening??

By dlp (Babyseal) on Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 08:20 pm:

They are doing drill for disaster training up at the airport this afternoon. A mock plane crash or something.
