[size=12][/size]Will try and make this short. My parents John and Alice Gulledge,friends of Erle and Merrium Hoover asked my husband Don and me (Jane) to visit them at the Island. We came up with our 5 girls! We stayed in the big cabin owned by the Caulkins,(Ithink) We bought it some years later.We loved every minute we had on the Island. One y-ear Don flew up and landed on the field, it was very exciting. Our girls loved it too.
There was another time when a bunch of us were going to go visit Round Island, we were all in Mickie Caulkins boat, but before we could go there a big fog came in and we all decided we had better find our way to Mackinau. Mickey said he could find it and even in the Fog he did!! We registered and all of us spent the night in two rooms!! I'll neveer forget the looks on the ever so fancy people having breakfast when we came in, in our very beat up clothes. We looked a mess!! There were many other happy, happy days on "our Island"! Too many to tell here Love to all of you who remembers the above. Jane Gulledge Leadley- 1/15/10
