Hi Ron,

Welcome back! Sorry about loosing you for those few days. I think I remember from reading your other post, it's a 600 mile drive for you to get to the island? Thats' quite a haul. I've got some relatives in IA. My dad was born and raised in Lisbon, went to Cornell College in Mount Vernon.

Our trips to the island will be limited for the next couple of months as we're about a month away from our first child. So, while you're up there havin' fun, I'll be down here wondering what on earth to do with a newborn??? Confused Mr. Green

Anyway, glad you made it back to the site. If you get a chance, please make a post and tell us about your experiences on the island. If I recall, you've been coming up for some time right?

Rob

Wow Rob, Turns into a small world sometimes - I live near Tipton and have been in this area for a long time. I know quite a few people in the Lisbon area - wonder if I would know your folks. - I suppose you have been to sutliff?? The "ole" boy that owns the tavern in sutliff has been coming to the island since 1952. I'm just a rookie - been coming up for 32 years.

Wow, small world indeed. I looked on Mapquest and it looks like Tipton is 10 - 15 miles from Lisbon as the crow flies? My dad's name is Clint Johnston he's 73 now. He went by his middle name (Jean) when he was younger, I suppose differentiate (sp?) him self from his dad Clint. My grandfather Clint (C.B.) Johnston owned the furniture store in Lisbon and was also the undertaker. The furniture store is now a restaurant, can't remember the name. My dad had two considerably older (20 or so years) sisters Maxine & Clarice, and also a younger brother Bob. Any of that ring a bell? I've never been to Sutliff although I've seen pictures of the bridge. I know my folks used to like to stop there when they'd go to visit uncle Bob.

Take care,
Rob
