Toivo, trying to put my car on eBay on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 01:18 am:

Borrowed this shot from Lori Hardin's guest album. Wish I had a pair of shoes like that. And I could go for one of those cones about now, too.

I hear that much of the U.S. is sweltering this summer. Not so here in the land of the midnight sun. The high today in Anchorage was 60 and the low was 58. Good flannel shirt weather. I hear they had a few thunder-boomers back home in da U.P. Thursday.

Remember to nominate your favorite Pasty Cam shots for the 2004 Pasty Cam Calendar. Either email the date of your selections to or browse and upload to the nomination album.

Uncle John, wasn't that u eating fudge brownies at the Fireman Baseball Tourny last Saturday.

A simple handpainted wooden sign hanging above the old store front, with the the screen door flanked by a cool shady porch bench, along with summer's colorful beauties nestled in their worn oak barrels, and America's stars and stripes completing the perfect summer portrait of a sweet-faced little girl enjoying her ice cold refreshment, while sitting on the old cracked steps, with the warmth of the sun surrounding her. Can you imagine your own childhood?

As my uncle Paul would say, What A Doll. Hey, that's my granddaughter, no wonder.

Little sweetheart doesnt seem to have a care in the world beyond that cone. Makes a person wish they were eight or nine years old again. Life was simple. Lindell's in LL and the Cozy Garden in Laurium.

By Dave & JoAnne Stefanac, Port Orchard, WA on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 09:58 am:

My husband's Aunt and Uncle (Clarence and Anne Bach) owned that store for many years. It holds a special spot in our hearts!

By Mary Lou on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 11:26 am:

I just checked out the nominations for the 2004 calender.......It is becoming impossible to choose because they are all this super picture of "The Good Old Summertime" in the Copper Country....we need more months!!

By rick karl, wisconsin on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 11:32 am:

Does anyone remember what the Ice Cream place was named in Florida Location on the left just before one went down the hill to Lake Linden? Was that the Cozy Garden?

I remember MANY times stopping there before going down the hill or over to Douglas Houghton falls...

This getting older is not what it's cracked up to be. At least the memories are still there...

By Lori Hardin, Franklin, WI on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 12:02 pm:

Thank you so much for featuring my daughter on Pasty Cam! She's thrilled. (Of course, her older brother is not impressed). This picture was taken August 12. We were staying with friends in Houghton while my son attended hockey camp at MTU. Poor Jake got to spend 12 hours a day at camp while we got to go Copper Country cruising - making sure to stop for ice cream every chance we got.

Toivo, we got the pink yooper tennies at Walmart in Houghton. I'm not sure if they will have them in your size, though!

By froggy on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 12:07 pm:

Rick- dont recall the name, but it wasnt the Cozy Garden. Cozy Garden was on corner of Hecla and Lake Linden Ave.

By Yooper in Indiana on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 12:20 pm:

Ann and Clarence had the Eagle Harbor Store,,not the Eagle River Store.

By Bill P, Ca. on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 12:26 pm:

"Uncle Otto" and "Aunt Mary" Sibilsky owned that store when I was a little boy and we kids ate a few ice cream cones on those steps. It was during the depression when ice cream cones were a huge luxury. Later,in 1946, Aunt Mary had the boy's dorm at Gitche Gumee built as a memorial to Unccle Otto. They were wonderful people.

By Missin the UP from NJ on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 01:03 pm:

Such a sweet picture. Even if I had Ice Cream in the house it wouldn't taste as good as that cone must've tasted!

By Troll Chick, Ferndale on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 01:10 pm:

Does anyone know how to go about to nominate a picture for the calendar. I found one in the gallery that I think should be submitted as a possible entry.

By Gary, Milford, MI and Florida Location on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 02:09 pm:

I believe the name of the ice cream parlor in Florida Location was Dairy Kreme in the 60's and 70's and later changed to Marijas before it went out of business. We used to stop there for gallons of root beer and chocolate dipped cones on our way down to Bootjack.

By Dave M., Lansing on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 02:16 pm:

I have to agree, she is a little cutie, but seeing the name "Bach" reminds me of a fella I used to know named "Bert Bach". Now ole Bert he was quite the rockhound and was always on the lookout for new and interesting specimens. I'll never forget the day I found what I thought was a piece of rammelsbergite, so I took it over to Bert's place to have him check it out. Unfortunately he said it was just a rock. Yep, I'll never forget the day I gave Bert Bach a rock!

Running and hiding now.

By BT,TC on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 02:49 pm:

Dave M.....we will hunt you down!....*S*

By Karen P, MN on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 02:56 pm:

How do you nominate this picture for the 2004 Calendar? I'd also like to nominate "First Fall Storm" by Dan Urbanski, and Album 21 pictures 041 and DSC00742 by Dom DeYanpert (sorry if the spelling is incorrect, I took notes and now, cannot read my own chickenscratches).

By Kathy, CA. on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 03:16 pm:

Nice to see that someone remembers the Cozy Garden. It was owned by my grandfather, James Galetto. They have both been gone for quite awhile and unfortunately the family does not have any good pictures of the outside of the Cozy Garden. If anyone has any pictures of it I would like to hear from you.

By Kathy, CA. on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 03:19 pm:

I forgot to post my email address in the message requesting pictures of the Cozy Garden. It is

By fy on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 03:26 pm:

"Hilltop" Dairy Kreme? I thought it had something else besides Dairy Kreme.

By Dave Cloutier - Colorado on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 03:46 pm:

Wow! That picture is absolutely precious! It captures the timeless essence of an ideal childhood memory. Even though it was taken this month it could have been taken in the 1930's. (well except for the cute pink shoes!)

By rick karl, wisconsin on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 03:47 pm:

That's RIGHT!

It was MARJA's Dairy Kreme---now I remember!

Thanks, Gary!

By Twin B, Littleton on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 06:09 pm:

Had my very first Banana Split at the Dairy Kreme thanks to a friend who felt sorry for me as I was a grownup by that time....Also had lots of ice cream at the Eagle River store as well as the Eagle Harbor General Store. Bill,CA(my favorite CC historian...I hadn't remembered the connection to your about that!)
Sally Nelson (still hooked on ice cream)

By Troll Diva, Ferndale,MI on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 06:18 pm:

By Dam Guy, Parasite Creek on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 06:59 pm:

Dave M.-

The only bad pun is the one I didn't think of first! Good one. Rammelsburgite? Hmmm...

By DJB-MI. on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 07:07 pm:


By Fran,Ga on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 07:30 pm:

This pretty little lady sitting there eating her icecream on the steps of one of our C.C. landmarks definitly shoud be on the calendar.

By EM,MI on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 10:41 pm:

I agree Fran, This would make a great calendar picture.

By Jeff Koski/Mowhawk on Friday, August 29, 2003 - 11:35 pm:

Great little place...Take my two boy's once a week for ice cream and skip stone or two down on the big lake.

By Jean --California on Saturday, August 30, 2003 - 12:40 am:

The Eagle River Store has fresh, warm, crispy do-nuts every morning. At least they did when I was there in July. I'll check it out again next week.

By Sandy, Monroe, MI on Saturday, August 30, 2003 - 12:52 am:

Hey Dave in Lansing....I'm still laughing over Bert....but too late in the evening for me to figure out rammelsbergite. ?? How bout a clue? Love your sense of humor!!!

I was already feeling blue that I can't be in Copper Country this Labor Day weekend - the first in MANY years....and missing my baby boy who's there for his final year at Tech. A family separated - Heartaches....

By Mary Lou on Saturday, August 30, 2003 - 08:29 am:

On the subject of ice a city-child visiting my grandmother in Lake Linden (many moons ago) parents took me to the old Spainish Shop" in Lake Linden and ordered a Tin-Roof....I thought it sounded awful!!!.....but it was wonderful!!......remembering the "old and "new" Spainish Shops in Lake Linden... a big part of the social scene for kids.....

By Mary Lou on Saturday, August 30, 2003 - 12:44 pm:

....PS..old and new "Spanish" (sp) Shops...anyhow, we sure had a lot of fun at the "new Span" when I became a Yooper at LLHS. It was like a club for teens. We had a juke box and dancing in the back room. Lionel & Maurice Asselin were the owners.

By L. Hart, Santa Catalina Island, CA on Sunday, August 31, 2003 - 12:08 am:

Having spent every summer of my childhood in Eagle River, I remember many an icecream cone devoured at the E.R. Store: 5 cents/big scoop!!! Also Mrs. Yogi (sp?) who operated the store part of that time would organize a July 4th small-town parade; and afterward, to our great anticipation, she'd let the paraders into the store for a treat of free candy. Lots of happy memories in that old store; thanks for the reminder.

By Charlie and Edie H. in Eagle River on Sunday, August 31, 2003 - 09:18 am:

Lois - Her name was Edith Yoki, and we bought her home when she passed away in 1988. Among the items left in the attic was a big banner which was used in the parade which said "ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN THE KEWEENAW - EVEN CHRISTMAS IN JULY"

By Jeff Koski MOHAWK!!!! on Monday, September 1, 2003 - 12:45 pm:

YES<YES<YES....Yes it is Mohawk!! hehe my BIG mistake!!

I think you should share your ice cream with me.I did teach you the sharing song for a reason.
HA-HA Jake you didn't get any ice cream.
