Hard to believe it has been more than eight years that we have been doing an end-of-the-month memorial on the Pasty Cam.

This Night Owl is going to sleep, see you in the morning after I awake from a good nights sleep.

Hello all, from this wakeful one in mid-Michigan. Friday will be a very busy day for me. I will be glad when I get all of the stuff done, and then we can enjoy the long weekend!

I hope you all have a very happy & safe long Labor Day weekend! For now, good night, everyone!

HEY I Love this late night Pasty message board!!!
Gives us nite owls a chance to post with no alarm clock (those irritating things) going off. So the BIG question is....why is pasty up so late? or so early?

Good morning! I'm glad it's Friday even though I have to work tomorrow morning. The rest of the weekend will be dedicated to fishing and then we'll probably put the boat away for the winter as I doubt there'll be any more time for it. Hard to believe it's September tomorrow.

Good Morning, have a good long weekend.

By David Hiltunen (Davidcorrytontn) on Friday, August 31, 2007 - 09:25 am:

Good Morning to you. I slept some,so ready to start the body and jump start the brain with coffee.
