OMG nothing better than Wolverine siblings fighting!!!

What a great Thanksgiving on the island!!!

Scott... when Susie couldn't figure it out, I told her it was you, and she still didn't believe me.

I do have one request... if you are going to go by "Spartan-1", can you try to dress is something other unitard when you go to the Tavern. That's just giving the UofM fans WAY too much ammunition. Plus, we're practically related... I don't EVER need to see that much of you again!

Go State!

I am not burdened by the rivalry stuff. My parents were not into football and I went to a college that didn't have a football program. It took me quite a number of years to figure out which Michigan college people were talking about and which city they were in. [ U of M, is that the one in Ann Arbor or is that the one in Lansing? ] You might say that I was deprived but, it doesn't feel like it.

About me. I started out in Almont, then my grandparents farm in Kalkaska County, then Cheboygen, then Standish, then The Soo, then the Army and Vietnam, then back to Standish, then back to the Soo, then Muskegon, then back to the town of Kalkaska for 16 years, then Bois Blanc Island, Lani arriving in fall 1989 to teach and me in spring 1990 to build at Sand Bay.

My grandparents were Fay & Ila Calkins (without a u). Mick Caulkins can rest easy because, it appears that we are not related. My grandparents and the Gibbons came from Kalkaska County, back in the 20's, and Kevins Grandmother, Ida (Peggy) was a sister of my grandfather. They looked a lot alike. After 1949, my grandparents lived across from the school in the log cabin there. Another relation is Roberta Babcock. Her father was also another Calkins brother. I also should not forget Uncle Fred, another Calkins brother, that owned the place that is now called Insel House.

I have seven other brothers and sisters: Alan, Carl, Jeff, Brian, Susie, Peggy and Lisa. The ones in bold are active members of this site. Feel lucky that they are not all active members.

So that is my background in sickening detail. GO LAKERS

Now that is an intro! Thanks Mike! You took the north and I went south.. Mom says I retraced steps the family had already.. Pontiac, where Dad was born.. Dryden, he drove the little car thru the school there.. Remember that story? Laughing I worked at the White Horse Inn in Metamora. Near Dad's brother Izzy.. I kept trying not to come back to KTown and ended up here anyway.. Dang! We sure do get around! Mostly following work in this fickle State of ours.. Rolling Eyes

I didn't believe you Jamie because I couldn't remember Scott's user name! I thought, for sure, it wasn't Spartan.. It is hard enough for me to remember names at all! LOL!

We live in the area of Michigan State but I am a U of M fan. Have lived in this area all of my life and only went to three schools. The same elementary, then on to junior high and off to high school. We were lucky in that way. And from high school have traveled to many places. Go Wolverines! Hate to see their coach go, he has done such a great job with his guys.

Hopefully I will be back on the island post ice. That is one of my island goals anyway. Haven't been there in the winter since I wore a Willa Jean Multicolored Knit hat. I loved that thing.... it was purple, yellow, orange, green,red, blue, chartruse, burnt sienna, olive, aqua and mauve...it was awesome. I think you and I had matching ones that year. Al and Ben got the solid ones.

Lana .. 30 times ..Wow !!

They say a rolling stone gathers no moss but I do not believe that .. I have moved alot too .. and it has made me what I am today .. I was able to live in the middle of no where in Nevada watching the Tumble weeds fly across the fields ... and oh how I loved the smell of the sage after a little rain !.. it all was so diffrent to me but so thankful I was able to live in Nevada .. so diffrent then where I was from ..... Alaska was a great place too .. when I say I wanna go home its alaska not the island ..
Both places are so special .. now in texas .. now I am learning more ..

Its a Happy Day !! Very Happy

Hi everyone, I am nicknamed Weena and that is usually what I respond to if your friendly. My husband and I, along with my Brother and Sister in law own a small parcel and visit as often as we can. Live in Jackson, MI but can never get enough of the island retreat. Wish we knew more people on the island. Would love to get to know the regular returners and the locals. Gradually hope to put faces with names soon.

Hi, I'm Ashley Zavala. Daughter of the late Timothy Gask. My granparents' cabin is on the East End. My grandparents are Bill and Marge Gask. Grandpa is gone now, but we make sure to get up there and enjoy his favorite place. We stay at the little red A Frame cabin. I think we've been on the Island for for 20+ years. Not sure on that. Connie and Nancy are my aunts. Kyle Gask is my cousin. You probably know them the most, because they are up there more than I am. My son William and I will be up in about a week. I can't wait!

I am Madeline (Culver) Simon's granddaughter, Megan from Ashtabula, Ohio. My Grams grew up on the Island and we have a lot of history there! Can't wait to go back...for being 23, I love living the quiet life....I enjoy the water, the land, the deer. They are way too small to hunt...my 10-point buck totally beats your deer! Surprised) But the turkey are a good size! I'd love to spend a Summer up there...any takers!

I gotta put this on here since I saw the MSU fans so...GO OSU! LOVE OUR BUCKS!! Razz
