Two summers ago I took my grandkids to story hour at the library and a man told stories and played the guitar and sang songs. My grandkids still are singing the one about skipping stones on Boblo Island. Does anyone know who this is and does he have copiesof that music?

I'm not sure if you're talking about me, or not. But two summers ago, I did a story-hour, told stories, read some of my poetry, and played guitar and sang songs that I had written about Boblo. (One that I wrote about an old sunken truck between Boblo and Round, one about traveling to Boblo, and one where I let the kids tell me what one of their favorite things to do on Boblo is, then I incorporated it into a simple song.) If it is me that you are referring to, there is no music. I just played 3 or 4 basic guitar chords, (G,C,D,A) and sang something like: When I'm on Boblo, I like to _________________ (fill in activity) BLANKING along, all the day long, *whistle*whistle*, when I'm on Bois Blanc Isle! Sound familiar? We went through all of the kids present and had a great time making a song out of their favorite things about the island. Some of the kids weren't satisfied with just one contribution, and yelled out additional suggestions, as I was wrapping up the song. Fun stuff! Very Happy
