Toivo from Toivola on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 07:31 am:

So Charlie calls me yesterday from somewhere in the U.P. and says, Toivo, can you get the Pasty Cam picture on earlier in the day, say by 7am? And I think to myself, There's a 7 am, too?

So here you go, and I need another cup of coffee. Charlie will be back tommorow or Saturday.

Thats a great photo Toivo. Good job these past days also.

By F.C. on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 08:27 am:

Toivo, your wit starts my day like a good cup of coffee. You did a fantastic job covering for Charlie. Hope you can do it again. Is it foggy in Toivola?

By SharonS on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 09:52 am:

It's foggy in Copper Harbor.

By Frank C, NE Illinois on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 10:14 am:

It's foggy in Toivo's Toivola until he's had anudder cuppa coffee! Same here...

Keep your guard up, Toivo, or Charlie'll have you backing up until suddenly you're posting new days the evening before!

==up to the U.P. in 23 days--YAY!==

Congratulations to Ken for a wonderful picture. And to Toivo for the fantastic work you've done as back-up web master. We bow before you.

Great pic but isn't it printed backwards?

By Pete WI on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 10:43 am:

Oops sorry, I guess it's my mind that's backward today.

You're a hoot!! Great job filling in for Charlie! I always look forward to seeing what's new on the Pasty cam... Keep up the good work!

P.S. We had a great visit to the UP... stayed on a lake in Hiawatha National Forest south of Munising. Didn't see any moose this time, but the Loons woke us up a couple of mornings...

This picture makes me feel like I am breathing that,"purest, freshest, most vitalizing air on earth," even down here in Chicagoland. Thanks

By Steve, MI on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 01:18 pm:

This is just what I needed to help take me away from everything. I forget just how beautiful it is there.

By Brian-TC Mich on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 03:51 pm:

That wouldn't be GUS Haapala - Would it?

By Yooper on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 05:02 pm:

You done good Toivo! Thanks for filling Charlie's!!!

By Mary on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 06:07 pm:

Hey Toivo!
It takes a lot of SISU to try to fill Charlie's shoes......and you filled them well! Thanks!

By Jean Mi. on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 07:13 pm:

Toivo you have done a great job! Charlie the F.O.T, and there are many of us request that Toivo receive a promotion and a raise. Hope that you had a restful vacation and are returning to the best season in da U.P. fall!

By Martha K., Pinckney, MI on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 08:11 pm:

Toivo, don't let Charlie make you feel guilty. I remember a few days when he's been late in posting, sometimes just making it before midnight! Besides, anticipating a new Pasty-cam pic is half the fun!

By Gus in Illinois on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 11:59 pm:

You bet, that's Gus Haapala, but who is Brian in TC? Is that an Inge Aittama clan member in Traverse City?

By New Hampshire on Saturday, August 31, 2002 - 10:36 pm:

Pinckney Finns.. I was raised in Pinckney off Farley Road....a long way from the UP.
Martha K. can you tell me if the Lassila family, Rajala and Saitari families are still there?


By Greta, ca on Sunday, September 1, 2002 - 12:20 pm:

Kudos to Toivo, good job, late or not.
