Anyone have photos from when the store that is now Hawk's used to be a Texaco? I saw the Gulf sign in Clover's memoir photos and it made me think of it... I think the Texaco sign was still in place in the late '70s. We used to park our truck in Gibbons' lot next door when they offered free year-round parking to North Star Ferry customers.

Hi Missy! We're really looking forward to meeting you and Larry. I lived between Fenton and Holly for several years, so I know where you're leaving... I wish I could have relocated to BBI as you're doing now.

Best of luck to both of you in this new endeavor!

thank you dan Laughing
we both feel SO VERY fortunate to have this opportunity and could not be any happier about our decision.
we know there will be some "adjusting" but we look forward to a better um, "quality of life on the island" .....
be sure to stop in and say "hi" next time you make it up?
take care.....Missy

Welcome to BBI!!! This is my first full year on the island and I love it. I'm certain Jeff and Sheila will tell you that it's not so quiet in the summer, especially July thru Sept. That is in comparison to winter, when you can count the vehicles that go by on one hand and can tell by the sound of the engine who it is. Again, welcome. Will see you soon.

I've known Larry and Missy for years and years - you're all lucky to be getting them as friends and neighbors - even though I haven't seen much of them lately, I'm going to miss them terribly

Guess this gives me a reason to visit the island Smile
