Good Morning, Great game for Calumet football last night 50 to 19. Going to be a beautiful day today. The chipmunks are filling there cheeks with my sunflower seeds right now. Is that cute to watch.

Good morning everyone ;) Pouring the coffee down me and trying to wake up here. Or as Dave would say, 'time to wakie wakie'.
Headed to Wisconsin today, on a doggie transport...and country girl here, is dreading that drive through Chicago.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Good Morning all.
Thanks for your concern on our son (D.J) He arrived safe in Iraq and we got an e-mail address for him this a.m. It will be a long 4 months for all of us but he said will be working 10 to 12 hrs a day so that will help pass the time.
Sur5er & Kosk, thanks for your note. It helps to have the pasty friends to chat with.
Everyone have a beautiful weekend!!!!

Good morning from Mishawaka IN. I'm with you Charlotte - GOOOOOOO IRISH! By the way, I see the bridge is down. Like when its winter. Is someone trying to tell us something? I'm not ready for winter yet. I haven't experienced autumn. Have a good day everyone and by the way - GOOOOOOOOOOOO IRISH!

Tried emailing you last night but got it back.
Please send me a note so I can get it correct.

Notre Dame is the UP. Remember much of the great ND past was dotted with Yoopers. Hartley "Hunk" Anderson of Hancock, All American guard 1918-1921,took over as head coach when Rockne was killed; George Gipp, Laurium,first Notre Dame All American, 1917-1920. Other less well known Yoopers: Dominic Vairo Calumet..played with Packers, Ojay Larson, Percy Wilcox, and Larry Danbom were all good ND players. And there are probably more that I don't know about. Those that I knew about were primarily from the Copper Country.

By Liz B (Lizidaho) on Saturday, September 17, 2005 - 02:42 pm:

Minor Correction, Hunk was from
Grandmother's brother. George convinced him to go down to Notre Dame to try out. Also became Defensive Line Coach for Chicago and a stint in St Louis. Yes, we all fly our ND flags on game day. Looks like this year might be good.

Just wanted to Say HI to everyone. I just registerd at the site and cant wait to explore it more

Sorry all of you ND fans were disappointed. Of course, I'm a Husky fan, so it doesn't matter to me!

By jmac (Jillann) on Saturday, September 17, 2005 - 09:01 pm:

Sad football weekend for our household- local high school lost last night after 15 wins which included a state championship last year, ND lost and Illini-- hopefuly next week will be better :(

Just came in from the front porch,basking in the gorgeous moonlight. The flag is blowing to the tinkling melody of a windchime. A dog somewhere down the road blends his base to the sounds of a train signaling our road crossing. The moon casting tree shadows across the yard reminds us of its gentle influences in our lives.Too bad most of us forget to admire and appreciate our Creators' simple majesty. I wish I could grant the peace of this hour on all the troubled souls in the world. Peace to all my yooper friends.(my I'm lunar tonight!) Good night all.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Saturday, September 17, 2005 - 10:43 pm:


I've just returned from a neighborhood block
party. You're right, the moon is beautiful
tonight, even in the city. I echo your sentiment.


Drive safely and bring the critter(s) home
safely. Blessings.


I'm off to get some sleep. Will be saying
prayers and praises for you tomorrow morning
at the Terry Fox Run.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Saturday, September 17, 2005 - 10:44 pm:

So glad to hear that you heard from DJ. He will be in my thoughts and prayers until he is home safe and sound, once again.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Saturday, September 17, 2005 - 10:47 pm:

Beautiful post. If there is anything that I have learned from surviving what I have survived, it is to not take for granted the most simpliest of things. To this day, I take so much pleasure from sunrises and sunsets.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Saturday, September 17, 2005 - 10:54 pm:

Thank you. Mesha was delivered to her forever mommy in Wisconsin, this afternoon. She will be an 'almost Yooper doggie' and live in Green Bay...almost da UP, eh.
I drove through Chicago for only the second time since we have moved here to Indiana... and it was white knuckle and sweaty palms kinda of traffic. After we crossed over into Wisconsin, hubby (yep, the truck driver who drives in everything), looked at me and said, "I'm glad you're driving, because that was some of the worse traffic I have ever seen, in all my years of driving." Gee thanks.

Good luck at the Terry Fox Run. I have my pom poms and am cheering for you. Perhaps Bev will mix you up a strawberry daiquiri for when you cross the finish line?

By Cindy Lee Maki (Cindylee) on Sunday, September 18, 2005 - 05:22 am:

Sunrise side Mi, just read your news that you heard from your son. A mother will never quit worrying, and I can see why you are relieved to have heard from him!!! May God keep him safe over there. You two are on my prayer list... And yes the moon sure did light up the night. I think it woke me up so early this morning,it pulled me out of bed---

By Beverly, San Jose (Beverly) on Sunday, September 18, 2005 - 05:23 am:

You are right ser5er. Now that you have shown me how to make and appreciate a really good Strawberry daiquiri, I not only will have them at the finish line, but at the beginning where they really make a difference of winning and losing. After you have one of these at the starting line you make a mad dash to get to the finish line for another. :D :D Kosk won't even see your Pom Poms as they will be just a blur as she passes everyone. is a great thing that you are doing.

By Cindy Lee Maki (Cindylee) on Sunday, September 18, 2005 - 07:21 am:

Go Bev Go!!!!

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Sunday, September 18, 2005 - 04:35 pm:

It was a glorious day for the Terry Fox Run,
which I must admit I did as a walk/run. I'm
afraid that my style would be characterized as
more steadfast than fast. .. I went early
because I wanted to get to church and avoid
the crowds (at the run, not at church). So you
see, people can begin this 10 km
run/walk/wheel/ bike event anywhere between
9:00 and 2:00 at sites across Canada. In my
case I started at 7:30. This was my sixteenth
year running it and I always feel the strength of
those I am praying for. It gives me a chance to
remember some who have not been as lucky
as Margaret, but have made an indelible
impression on my life as well.

I've never had a strawberry daquiri, but I do
believe that I'll have my husband make me a
Michigan drink--bourbon and Vernor's (I
squirreled away a couple of cans on my last

Sur5er--wonderful news about the critters.
I don't like to drive around Chicago, Detroit,
Washington, D.C., Boston or Philadelphia, but
for a real knuckle whitener, you have to try
Montreal (where the signs are only in French
and require time for mental translation--never
