One of my favorite Shoebox Memory shots in today's Decade in Review, Barb Nelson's grandmother, with grand-dad in the palm of her hand.

Good morning! Hey, Mary's hubby has a picture in the slide show. Cool. You could sure recognize the old carnival grounds with the junk piled up outside of Lake Linden. Loved it all!

John, the record is a lot more than 2. I think I've had it 3 or 4 and there are others who've done it too. Good luck tomorrow!!

Were you sleeping in just to get the right pictures?

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 10:06 am:

All those pictures with buds on the trees, there are a few out there on the real trees I have seen!

I remember the carnival, Skerbeck Shows I think. Those were good times back in the day. Go to the carnival then head to the Lakes Drive-In for some more fun. My Uncle owned the Lakes at one time. Many moons ago!!! LOL

Good Friday Morning to All! I don't want to go to work today!

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 10:33 am:

I'm with Janie...I say we all get in our cars and meet at the Hut for pasties tonight.

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 11:40 am:

The target date for the Hut Grand Re-opening is Friday, May 30.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 11:50 am:

OK, so we'll be early. I'm sure I could find something fun to do back home for a couple, er, triple, of weeks.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 03:26 pm:

Like Cindy said, we'll be early and test things to make sure the re-opening day will be perfect!! I am so ashamed, but I have never ate a pasty.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 03:58 pm:

Janie! I can't believe that you've never had a pasty. I'm driving over right now and we'll make some. Or better yet, get your order in with Pasty Central right away. Your taste buds will thank you...and have some ketchup ready to with it.

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 04:11 pm:

Janie must get some. We had Pasties at our office meeting last week and they were good.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 05:06 pm:

My husband has had them, and loves them, but when we were U.P where he tried them, I was dieting. I have since learned that the dieting thing on vacations is Un-American!

Does anyone remember that old couple at the carnival that sold french fries and you could put vinegar on them? They were so good.

By Daveofmohawk (Daveofmohawk) on Friday, May 9, 2008 - 06:23 pm:

LAURIE B. I believe that they were called Clinton's French Fries; I remember them well, the fries were always kind of soggy but delicious. They were served in a cone-shaped paper cup with vinegar.

For the people that were asking about our "Texas sized" sinkhole NE of Houston, I posted a pic and what is known so far on the geology thread for your reading enjoyment.....

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Saturday, May 10, 2008 - 12:02 am:

Laurie, is that vinegar on the fries or the old couple?
