Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 08:40 am:

Eagle River is filled with deer this time of the winter. But today they'll have to make room for some visitors, as the Copper Dog 150 has a new route that brings them right into town. The courtyard around the Jail and Courthouse usually sees several dozen deer milling about, but they'll no doubt retreat to the woods when the doggies arrive later today!

Thanks to the Archives for the neat old dogsled shot (we'll have more on this Sunday's Shoebox Memories) and thanks to Melanie Hakala Rossi for the nice Eagle River Deer portraits. The Pasty Cam officially started 15 years ago today - right here in Eagle River - when my son Jonathan and I committed to bringing a picture-a-day to the Internet from the U.P. That was back in 1998 when they still used hand-cranked computers and tin-type photography. My how things have changed. For more than half of the Pasty Cam's run Mary Drew has been your regular weekday moderator, and she'll return tomorrow as we continue on into the 16th year of this daily feature.

In case you had not heard, Jonathan and Katriina had their baby this week! (Actually Katriina did most of the work :o) and we hope to have some pictures of the new arrival later today. Stay tuned :o)

Congratulations, Charlie and family! So that little one wouldn't wait for March 1st, eh? May God continue to bless you all!

Love the deer.....especially the last one, licking 'its' chops! ;>

AWESOME Pics as usual, Mel, and welcome to Earth little one!

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 09:47 am:

Finally received a shot (from Katriina) of the proud dad and their new addition:

Jon and Ellie
The threesome will be moving back to Eagle River this Summer, which Grandma and Grandpa are very much looking forward to :o)

Ohhh -the deer photos today are spectacular. I just love those beautiful creatures.

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 10:20 am:

Having started the Pasty Cam with a baby picture 15 years ago, it seems right at home to welcome the newest family member to start another year.

Maybe this is a trick on us but.............Boy or Girl?????????????? folks!

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 10:27 am:

The pink figure on the clothes makes me think...a girl?

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 10:58 am:

Thanks, Charlie, for sharing these most precious photos!
Nothing touches the heart of a new Mom more than seeing the babe she's been 'carrying', now resting in the arms of Dad! I remember the feeling.:)

By Kathyrn Laughlin (Kathyl) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 10:59 am:

I like the picture of the deer with the apple in it's mouth, and the dogsled picture. I note that one of the dogs--look kind of like a lab mix---is keeping an eye in the competition.

By Karen Benton (Nerakthenice178) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 11:08 am:

Congrats, Charlie, Edie, Jonathon & Katriina!! Welcome to the world, Ellie!! Fun pics, Melanie!! It's a day of exclamation points on all sides!!

By Cindy, New Baltimore, MI (Cindy) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 11:16 am:

The birth of a baby is always a joyful time for a family. Congratulations to all on the arrival of a beautiful and precious baby girl. God bless!

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 12:07 pm:

Congrats to your whole family on the new arrival Charlie! "More cattle on the ranch" as someone once said to me.

Great Pics today!

By Diana P. (Diana) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 01:52 pm:

Ohhh, your Ellie is beautiful! Congratulations and God's blessings on your new family, Jonathan and Katriina ... and Charlie and Edie, too! :-)

Blessings on the arrival of baby Ellie to Katrina, Jonathan and her
grandparents, Charlie and Edie. Oh what a happy day that must
have been!

By Paul Roberts (Grizzlyadams) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 05:23 pm:

What an awesome and appropriate way to start year 16 of The Pasty Cam! Congrats guys! Can't wait 'til October when I get to see Ellie (and you too of course) :)

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, March 1, 2013 - 07:13 pm:

Oh, how exciting it must be for Charlie and Edie to have another grandchild. There just is nothing more special than grandchildren. Congratulations to them and to Jonathan and Katriina on their beautiful little bundle of pink!!

I absolutely love the deer pictures! They are awesome!!

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, March 3, 2013 - 07:50 pm:

They finally got to take Ellie home this weekend, and Jonathan snapped another shot, hard to believe this one is from a cell phone:

"Live long and prosper"

Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, March 3, 2013 - 08:11 pm:

Oh my gosh! She is so adorable, Charlie. You and Edie have a lot to be grateful for.

By Diana P. (Diana) on Monday, March 4, 2013 - 01:45 am:

Oh, such a sweet photo of precious newborn Ellie!! God bless your dear family. :-)

By Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Monday, March 4, 2013 - 10:37 am:

Ellie is beautiful and so peacefully sleeping at home...I hope that continues, for Katriina and Jon's sake. :-)

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Monday, March 4, 2013 - 12:38 pm:

I tried to post several days ago, but apparently my post was lost somehow. Congratulations to Katriina, Jon, Charlie, and Edie! What a sweet little bundle of joy for you all! And I know your happy family is looking forward to being in the same town again, or at least the same area, this summer!
