I'm attempting to post a picture directly into the post, but it isn't working so far. Success after 4 tries!!!

Hi,
I have 10Mb of room for a private web site at WildBlue.net. I created some pages using a canned program called PageProducer that WildBlue has. The pictures show a url for themselves and of coarse the page has a url. I tried the url for the picture and the page.

I thought I might be able to use that 10 Mb that I am paying for. Any suggestion?

UPDATE - I wasn't copying the entire url for the photo.

I don't see Mike Gahn. Are there any others missing? Who took the picture? Was it Mr. Dunbar?

Wendy has job security. Her boys are in 2nd & 4th grades. When Al's girl goes, the boys should be in 6th & 8th grades. Also Eric Gibbons boy would start that same year. This is assuming everyone stays on the island.

I bet you never thought that you would become a part of the "ancient" history of Bois Blanc Island, did you?

Connie I started in 58 and I think 59 was the biggest class of the pines school with 12 kids can't be sure though my memory isn't that good. How about yours? The teacher in 59 was either Sue Vanvoorees or Larry Dunbar.

I remember one teacher that lasted a short time. He stayed in the little cabin behind Ed Rothies (wrong spelling). He was young and I think his name was Speeless (spelling?) Anyone remember him?

I will have to think about the years ..
the guy you are talking about , pete . i do not remember .. could have been the year we moved off the island to be with dave as mom wanted to keep her kids together ..dave lived with mike white and his family for his first high school year ...
I went to one year in cheboygan .then we moved to the stone house and i was so happy !! .I got to go to a one room school again !! with more kids ..the Giddings school about 28 kids .. it was a blast !!

I remember Su ..
I will get my thinking cap on .........

Okay then it was before you went to school ..

Do you remember when he came over from cheboygan to the island to live with your family ?? I know he did not stay very long .. I have pictures of him leaving on an airplane out at the airport ...

Maybe it was the gal that came awhile that made 13 it was your other cousin .. just remember her .. I think she was your cousin .. she had dark hair and she was in the upper grade .. wore make up and deep lip stick..all new to us island kids ..she did not stay long either ..but I do beleive one of them made the 13 student ...unless my thinking cap thinks of something else .. lol lol
