Rob, whoever you are -
This is a neat site and it's taken me time to get around in it!
Sure wish I had something profound to add, but...

Hey....are you the same island teacher that my buddy and I played that shuffleboard type game in the bar against a few summers ago? You probably don't remember, but it was Pete and I (we both teach in Birch Run) against you and a girl named Marcia. You girls smoked us in the game and then we shut the bar down talking about teaching and unions,etc. I really remember the night because someone came in and said the northern lights were out. When Pete and I left (we were feeling quite good by then) we just went out and sat on the shore and watched the sky. It was beautiful. Brad

Yep, Brad, that would be, me since I'm the only teacher teaching on the Island (altho' I'm laid off til Spring - bummer Sad - yes, Rob).
Shuffleboard tourneys are every Fri. night in off-season, Thurs. nights during regular season. We do get in some practice Rolling Eyes
We are getting some ice out in the channel and have notified the Coast Guard to please halt shipping in the South Channel. HOWEVER - PLEASE CALL SOMEONE OVER HERE BEFORE VENTURING OUT!!!! No one has walked it or planted any trees yet, as the cold weather is just hitting us. We do NOT want any mishaps like T.C. has been having lately!

Unfortunately, I have some very bad news to relay. Sandy Shannon, whom I dearly loved like a big brother, passed away yesterday morning of a heart attack at his home in Owosso. The funeral will be Friday at 9:30 a.m. at St. Paul's on M-21. Viewing is at the Nelson House in Owosso tonight from 7 -9 p.m., then tomorrow from 2-4 and 7-9p.m. Our love to Kathy, Katie, Pete, Bobbie, and the whole family!

I will be letting Mike know for sure cause I was hoping to get a ride from him.....He got the snowmobiles? I am sorry to hear about your friend. So sad, and Tansy too. I know how it is to lose an animal, or two.

Hey Lani....Pete and I will want a rematch in the spring. We are going to have to find a table down here to practice on!
In regards to our awesome profession of teaching...I thought we were going to be in better shape with the "fat man" out of office but Granholm's proposal would mean $79 less per student in Birch Run. I think the state average would be $47 or so. Let's organize a march on Lansing! -Brad

Hi Lani, :wave:
I am very glad to see you here and hear you are doing so great!! I hoped to see you this summer, but I am not sure if we can make it now. We have baby number 2 coming in June and I am not sure about the long trip so soon after its born. Talk to you later,

Brad - a rematch is a definite possibility! Just let me know when! :cheers:
As for the Fat Man being gone, I couldn't be happier! I know it'll be a reduction in monies, but that is HIS fault, you know, and it will be corrected!

Troy - #Milti Hi, to you and your little family! I sure understand, and congrats! IF you get up here, please give me a call! I LOVED seeing your mom last Fall!

Duane- #Milti Hi, sweetie! Sure looking forward to seeing you this Spring or summer! It's been a LONG time!

Wow! This site is growing huge! Smile
