Hello Everyone,

This is Tim Lord from Atlanta. Greetings from the not so sunny South. I originally became fond of Bob-lo in the early 80's while working on Mackinac Island. I worked for the Chippewa Hotel. All through the mid to late 80's my Grandfather, Father and brother would rent a cabin from the late and Great Al Hoffman. I've spent many a great fall in the woods hunting deer and drinking at the bar. One of my best buddies from College grew up on Cheboygan and worked for Arnold line. Mike Maurice. son of Pat Maurice that runs a large funeral home there. Anyway, I plan to bring my two sons back to the Island this summer for a little Vacation up north, fishing and hiking. I also hope to soon find and purchase a little cabin to get to a few times each year. So next time you see a "mainlander" with a shaved head.....that's me.

By the way, I don't think there is any relation to Bruce....but I'm checking. Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan 1963. Grew up in Kalamazoo. Son of Stan and Kathy Lord.

Hope to meet some of you this fall.

Tim Lord
Atlanta, GA.

Hi Tim :wave:

Welcome to the site. This place seems to draw a lot of southerners, either that or a lot of michiganders have fled to the south. Smile Glad to have you aboard here.
