This little guy has made several appearances on these pages in the past, mowing the lawn and shoveling snow. Mom and Dad (Patricia and Michael Forgrave), sure seem to keep Stephan busy with a variety of U.P. activities. He looks pretty small, standing on the edge of Lake Superior's vastness in the top photo. I think that's a rock in his hand in the second shot, and he looks like he's winding up to give it a good toss back into the drink. Either that or he could be waving goodbye to the warm autumn weather we've been having, with the chill back in the air...

John Dee is predicting snow later today!

Good picture! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Rock throwing really takes one back to childhood. Remembering skipping stones and how nice it was to be close to the big lake.

Good morning from Brighton. Cool picture what great times for a little guy to live in the upper. Reminds me of my son and I ,took him with me all the time my best life experiences was with him. Grown up now and grown appart but good memories.

Looks a little chilly; but, I bet he's still having fun.

By Elizabeth Mi on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 07:19 am:

It's only 28 this a.m. Portage Lake looks calm and cold. Deer hunting must be boring with no tracks to follow! Hope the snow stays away until Christmas:)

By Frances S. Georgia on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 07:27 am:

Little did I know when I was that age, throwing rocks that I was making memories. I know this little guy will someday look back on this as a good memory.
Happy Thanksgiving to you'll

By Wade,MI on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 07:51 am:

wow, does this kid look small in front of such a huge lake. I remember when i was little throwing rocks into a river by my cousins house and i fell in. It was scary

By c.pelto nm on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:06 am:

Oh how I miss that big lake. Thanks for the pic.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:12 am:

. . . from sea to shining sea! From our sea to yours, wherever in the world you are posting from: Happy Thanksgiving! (a Hallmark moment!)

By Kathy from Whitmore Lake/Cheboygan on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:17 am:

Hey Elizabeth MI
They're predicting 2-4 inches down here in troll-land today. I'll be driving through it to get to Mom's house: over the [Huron] river, but not through any woods. Happy Thanksgiving, one day early, to all.

By cminetti Macomb MI on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:23 am:

Happy Thanksgiving to all... I remember in my childhood in Lake Linden Thanksgiving meant everone gathered at Grandma Bea's for a huge feast. We would eat in shifts beacause of all the family with lots of kids. My thoughts are with "Grandma Bea" this Thanksgiving.

By yooper at college, ND on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:25 am:

Well, after months away from home I'm finally gettin back to Calumet, Grand Forks is a nice place and a top of the line school here at U of North Dakota, but it doesnt compare to da keweenaw, how convenient that the Sioux are takin on(or taking out hehe) the huskies at the SDC this weekend, Happy Thanksgiving

By Mary, Wheaton, IL on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:34 am:

I am having thoughts of heading to the Caribbean after seeing this photo. I will be in the UP for Winter Carnival this year and then heading to warmer places. Happy Thanksgiving!

By Mary BC MI on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:43 am:

Oh, the big lake. Reminds of the good times skipping stones with my Dad!

By maijaMI on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 09:19 am:

Love all the children's pictures. Make me feel like vacation, but you lucky ones are living there!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I am forever grateful for Pasty Cam.

By Georgie, MO on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 09:32 am:

Looks like fun in spite of the cold. It's 33 right now in Columbia,Mo,with some light snow. Beats all the fog we had in Amarillo this past weekend! I like to see where I'm going! Glad to be home, but we had a great time. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

By Liz, Idaho on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 09:54 am:

The snow flakes are filtering through today while campus is very quiet. Tossing and skipping stones never leaves one's muscle memory...lately only getting 3 skips and a lot of thunks...maybe I need to start over and relearn with this little guy! Happy Gobble Day!

By Karl from Cadillac on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 11:50 am:

I remember doing that when I was little, my Dad and my 2 brothers and my sister, that was a lot of a matter of fact this fall I did it again on the beach next to Eagle River! I think I did better when I was "younger"! Still fun though! I plan on bringing my Grand Kids up there next fall for color tour and teaching them how to "skip a stone", like I tought my son and daughter. Happy Thanksgiving to all and remember to pray for all our service men and women!

By Jim In Breckenridge MI. on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 01:13 pm:

Just started to get the small flakes in the air. Forcast 1-2 inches today and another 2-4 for tonight. It wont be long and I will be on the Polaris.

By Connie, Ft. Belvoir VA on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 01:51 pm:

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, especially all of our troops that are deployed around the world. We have had a misty drizzle for about 4 days now, wind is picking up and temps are dropping. Wish it would snow instead.

By Dan and Holly, Boise on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 02:40 pm:

Liz in Idaho? Where in Idaho are you?

By The Infrequent Poster on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 03:25 pm:

FYI - Lift-bridge cam clock is way off - several minutes too fast.

By Lowell MO. on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 04:19 pm:

I can also remember the shore like that. Cool Picture.
Snowing here in east central Missouri, with accumulations of anywhere from an inch to 6 ins.
We have about 4 to 5 here where I live. Had fun outside it was like being back in the U.P. plowing snow.

By Troll, MI on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 05:07 pm:

Ha,ha! Right now the Lower Peninsula has snow and the U.P don't! Were supposed to get at least 5 inches. Have fun in the cold w/ no snow! We have snow and we love it yoopers!

By ShawnR, GR MI on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 05:34 pm:

Its snowing like mad here in Grand Rapids - its been snowing since about noon.

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 06:08 pm:

No snow here in Cornell, yet. Wind is cold though. 30 F. I remember being pretty young at Esry Park and skipping stones with my cousins Shirley and Charlene.

By downstate don on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 06:41 pm:

Freezing rain and snow here downstate and suppose

on the turkey and trimmings...and the warmth of
everyone being together...the snow and cold will
be least until Monday when everyone
has to travel to work in it again. Happy Thanksgiving all trolls, yoopers, and yooper wanna-bees.

By db mi. on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 06:53 pm:

By kosk in Toronto on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 08:55 pm:

Happy Thanksgiving!

No snow on the ground in Toronto yet, just a
few flurries.

It's been years since I celebrated American
Thanksgiving in Michigan. I'm lucky to have
ex-pat friends to celebrate with tomorrow.
About twenty of us have been holding a
potluck Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday
evening for the past couple of decades.

By yahoo in flatland on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 09:37 pm:

We got at least 2 inches down here in Flatland, by Ohare, and its still coming down!
Happy Thanksgiving all you Yoopers & Wannabe's!

By Steve,WI on Wednesday, November 24, 2004 - 11:15 pm:

This is my favorite picture of my son doing the same thing this past summer. From the looks of the picture you can guess where he ended up next.
