A couple of interesting glimpses of life in the U.P... The first I found stuck in our "visitors" mailbox from last week:

Can you believe, someone was going to throw away a perfectly good... :)

Actually this was a practical joke on Dad, by my two sons. Daniel and Jimmy. Ages 16 and 6. While visiting Munising Falls recently. Jimmy got the smelly end of this joke for sure. Brothers! :)) Know what they say: One man's ....is another man's treasure.

Today's second photo is another Skypixs beauty, which we've been highlighting all week. Rick Anderson buzzes the channel for a closer look at a big boat in the neighborhood.

Is that ship on the canal, and approx. where?

By JoAnne Stefanac, Port Orchard, WA on Thursday, June 26, 2003 - 10:17 am:

Hope you'll indulge me with a bit of a "backtrack" here. Remember that pic on Tuesday? The one with the old shipwreck off near the mouth of Eagle River? Well, I received some info in my "Inbox" yesterday that pretty interesting. Went back and posted it under that day's comments but not sure how many of you backdate and would end up missing it so here it is again. (Sorry if it's a repeat for some).

You don't know me, but a friend sent me a link to
the conversations at Pasty.com about a ships hull East
of Eagle River. The wreck you folks are talking about
is the "Peninsula", a 154 foot steam propeller vessel
built in 1849. She wrecked on November 15, 1854 after
breaking her propeller shaft and drifting ashore. No
lives were lost. Some seasons it is completely
buried, some times it's exposed. Much of her unique
engine is buried within the hull. There are several
individuals who are very familiar with the ship. I am
President of the Marquette Underwater Preserve, and VP
of the Marquette Maritime Museum, so I've known of
this vessel for years, although I've never actually
dove it. It lies within the Keweenaw Underwater
Preserve, and is protected from vandelism.
I hope this helps you guys; please feel free to pass
the word to your group. I couldn't get logged in, so
I cut and pasted your address.

Do they dredge the channel or is it natural?

By John, MI on Thursday, June 26, 2003 - 12:00 pm:

Dave, Here's the story of the canal.

That kid in the garbage can is absolutely hysterical! My whole family got a BIG kick out of that! Good idea for a Candid Camera stunt!

Wasn't there a kids cartoon series called "The Garbage Pail Kids"? He is adorable! Love that picture!
