Hi all,

We just joined the BBI site and wanted to introduce ourselves.
My husband, Fritz has been going up to BBI for just over 50 years now. I've only been enjoying the island for about 22 years.
We have a cottage in the Pines, which my husband's parents bought when he was just over 10 years old. So he has told me stories from years gone past.......

Looking forward to chatting with everyone on this site........

Welcome to the site. Very Happy Over 50 yrs? You might know my grandparents Richard (Donald) and Cecelia Winters. My grandpa has past and my grandma doesn't make it up much anymore though.
Good to have you here, Troy

Hi Bonnie & Fritz!

Welcome to the forum, glad you're here. I know I've seen the sign for your cottage many times but I can't picture what your place looks like. Hope you'll visit here often and join in the conversations. We have a fun group here. Very Happy

Rob

Yes, welcome, Bonnie and Fritz. I too have seen your cottage sign many times, but can't place exactly where. I thought it was near the old hotel site, but my wife says she thinks it's on the shore road between there and the Marconi place. She's usually right when we differ.
Anyway, you'll enjoy this website. Rob has provided a great service to folks who love Bois Blanc.

I have met your husband but have not had the honor to meet you yet.
My nephew works with Fritz. (Bob Elka) Hope Fritz is feeling better than last time we saw him. Have you been up to the island lately? We will probably not get up until Spring. Have a nice holiday.

Thanks everyone. Sorry we have not wrote back sooner, but we did Christmas today with my family.
First Troy....my husband Fritz said Yes, he knows your grandparents. I might have met them, but I'm terrible with names.
Next.......Our cottage is the large white one next to the first "Uncle Toms Cabin"....we are right on the side road to the back row of cottages. I think Fritz is out there every time he is up there cutting the grass.
So far we love the site. I'm on ten dog lists so the computer is almost always on......my server has a fit if I let to many built up.
Diane....I haven't been up in the last two years, just because I can't seem to find a good crittersitter and this past summer was just plain messed up. I really miss it too.
Fritz is doing a little better, but he is still having so much trouble with the discs in his neck and his left shoulder that he still might have to have more surgery. I'll just have to send him north to recover. :o))
