Hello everyone. My name is Kristen Shannon. I have been coming up to the island since I was 6 months old. I LOVE THE PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!! I stay with my grandma Bobby Shannon who has a cottage in the pines. I am currently a sophomore at CMU. Go Chips! I can't wait to be up there again. I am going to be up there for Labor Day weekend, so I will soon get my island fix. Every one needs it, I know I do after starting school again. Confused

Hello Kristen, Do you have a uncle or father named Al? I was in love with him when I was 14. If so tell him Peggy says hi!

Darn it! I was hoping it was the right Shannons. It would be great to talk to him again after all these years! Crying or Very sad
Thank you for your response Kristen. I am sure your Grandfather was a handsome man. I was just hoping he was the Al Shannon I knew about 30 years ago! Wink

Thanks for the welcome Exclamation I had a great weekend. The weather was wonderful until it was time for me to get on the boat, then the sky literally opened up and I was drenched in a second.

Katie, we missed you. Crying or Very sad It wasn't the same without you.

Hi Katie, Well how old was your grandfather? I was 14 and he was about 16, 30 years ago. That would make him 46 years old if he was still alive.
I don't know for sure but I think the cabin they lived in was the one built with the birch logs.
Are you sure there isn't another Al Shannon?

Hi Katie, I could be wrong. Like I said, it was 30 years ago. It could have been Matt, but I was sure it was Al. What are your other uncles names, maybe it will come to me?! LOL!!!! Confused

Hi Al's favorite sister. I think I can answer that question. Matt is my father, he's the youngest of four boys, Tom, Sandy and Phil. Matt is 45 now so he is who you may have been thinking about.

Hi, Like I said, it was so long ago. I think I may have been confused with an Al Shannon from my childhood home town.
Yes, it must of been Matt. We were in puppy love. I can remember that we were at the dock swimming and I cut my arm on something and was bleeding. I showed it to him and he licked the blood off my arm. So that must mean he is my blood brother! LOL! We wrote to each other a few times and then we just drifted apart. He must of found a new love. Maybe your mother Kristen!
I will never forget how I felt about him. He was so sweet!
