Hi everybody,

Just thought I'd let you know that it sure is getting quiet over here. Except for the last few rifle hunters, everyone is just about gone for the winter. Pretty soon it will be just the 25 of us left, IF THAT! O'well, that's ok, dosen't bother me. Now I can look forward to everyone coming back in the spring.

I'm sure you have all heard that the sale of the tavern is now final. The new owner has already taken over, and the previous owner is on her way to Flordia for the winter.

ME? I'm just gonna stay here, snuggle up in my favorite chair and work on the counted stitch pattern that I made from a photo of my dad and my son. Even with all this free time, I won't get it done before winters end, but it will keep me busy.

Lets hope we get an ice bridge this year and we some of you here! Stop in and let me know if you do.

By the way, I still can't get a "smiley" in my posting!!

Wow, only 25 people stick around? I had heard it was more like forty something. What do you do for groceries, etc. when the ferry quits running, call over and have it flown in? Do the islanders have get-togethers during the winter?

Here's to the off season! Beer! Enjoy your peace & quiet.




p.s. I left a message for you in the Bois Blanc Island Site/Forum News regarding #Turn-l 's

Hi Rob,

Well you are right, usually the happy round number for the winter is 40, but this year, it seems that everyone has a place to go for the winter. I usually stock up on all groceries, e.g., paper products, can and dry goods, meat in the freezer, milk in the freezer, etc. The only thing that we can't stock up on is fresh fruits and vegs. But we manage.

Have a great Thanksgiving!!
