Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 07:48 am:

The road crew was at work in our neighborhood back in '99 when it was time for the shot of the day. Eight years later these Pasty Cam pages are being published from Clarkston, Michigan, where Edie and I are visiting her dad, who is doing well after heart bypass surgery this week.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 07:50 am:

Good Morning! Congratulations Mr. DuLong!!

I guess the pain from my joints paid off today in my getting up early and being able to be first. Charlie welcome to the area, you must have brought the good weather. Looking forward to being outside all weekend.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 07:53 am:

Good Morning! TGIF! It's supposed to be a beautiful day here in mid-Michigan, partly sunny with a high of 68, and a gorgeous weekend until later Sunday. It's finally time to dig out our spring clothes!

Have a great day, you all!

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 08:38 am:

Happy to hear Charlie and Edie that your father is doing well! Best Wishes!

I wrote in a little note yesterday about the weatherman in
Morenci, George Isobar. Some others wondered if that was his
real name. Sadly, it isn't. The editor is an old friend named
Dave Green, and he assumes that cute name for his monthly and
then yearly weather stories. Morenci is a small town, and
everyone knows Dave began doing weather stats in high school
thanks to an inspired science teacher he had. So they know
Dave is just being a little silly when he assumes that name.
Dave has won more juried statewide competitions for having
the best small weekly in the state than all others combined in
the last 20 years so the locals put up with his silliness about
George knowing even those articles are pretty special.

Good Morning, I can't wait for the nice weekend. We will be outside the whole time. Soccer Saturday and Bike ride with the cubscouts sunday.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 09:07 am:

Don't forget the suntan lotion, Brooke & sons! Gee, it's wonderful to finally be able to talk about needing suntan lotion! Enjoy!

Mr.Dulong's Early Bird post looks like he was ten minutes ahead of Charlie at 7:38 am:

I heard how them joints can make your brain swell,and you get smarter.I belive it was on a anti drug comercial.

Good Morning from K-Town! Stink up the house and fry up some fish today.

By Pennie (Trolldiva) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 09:22 am:

Congrats on the early bird Mikie!

By Cotton (Cotton) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 09:42 am:

Mikie, good job!!!! But don't like hearing that you're hurting. BooHoo!!!

By Janet Boatman (Janetnwohio) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 10:00 am:

Good job Mikie on the early bird!!!!!!!!! Have a good weekend everybody it sounds like it is going to be so nice here in Ohio and hope it is at your home also.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 10:30 am:

Congratulations on your Early Bird today, Mikie! I'm sorry that it took joint pain to get you up early, though. I hope you feel better soon.

By s. dearing (Geebeed) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 10:40 am:

Hope all have a wonderful weekend! In central Indiana, the temperature is supposed to reach near 80 degrees by Sunday!

By Charles In Esky (Charlesinesky) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 11:25 am:

Oh, my, what a beautiful day to be alive and in the U.P.! My wife
and I and our dog are just back from two hours at Portage Marsh
just south of Esky along Little Bay de Noc. The marsh was alive
with ducks and geese and various blackbirds and swallows.
Soon we saw the resident eagle flying back and forth too. The
big thing, though, were all the flights of geese honking away up
in the sky as they flew up the bay toward Rapid River and then, I
suppose, over the central U.P. toward Au Train on Lake Superior.
The dog was not much impressed with all the birds, but those
little bunnies eating fresh green grass on the margins of the
road and trails seemed pretty interesting. Spring has sprung,
and it is delightful!

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 11:34 am:

Marianne, I will have to find the sunscreen. Thanks for the reminder. We put it on but we don't tend to burn without it, better safe than sorry. Generally I repel sunlight, there is just enough Ottawa in me as good protection. My Brother takes after my Mom and turns red instantly, she is the rosy cheeked Finn.

Mikie's post was 3 minutes before Mary Drew's????

Great weather here south of the Motor City 70..Last evening g.son and I saw 10 deer as we went for bike ride at LAKE ERIE METROPARK. today we will bring our camera...

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 01:41 pm:

Doesn't today feel like the beginning of a holiday weekend? Everyone is in such a good mood because of the nice weather. What a welcome change! Have a super, safe weekend everyone!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 05:13 pm:

Good job Mikie on the Early Bird!!!

Well, what an exciting past 24 hours here. A facility that collects waste chemicals had a tanker truck blow up in their parking lot late yesterday. Then early this morning, our favorite refinery (BP Texas City) poisoned about 90 workers and sent them to the hospitol for treatment.

Never a dull moment on the "cancer coast".....

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 09:10 pm:

Dave,it looks like Mikie and I will end up really brilliant people! I am sure there are plenty of us with sore joints. Hi Cotton,Deb and Mikie I plan to plant flowers this weekend. it sounds like we all will be busy.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Friday, April 20, 2007 - 09:51 pm:

I don't know how I got on before the powers to be signed on. I saw the picture and went for it. I normally don't get up that early so I was surprised that I could be first.
