Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 07:38 am:

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first photo of the stone boat in Kearsarge which appeared on the Internet, on this day in 1998. There are a couple of other similar structures in the Copper Country, built in the WPA era. And of course you can see lots of stone work like this at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge.

Little did we know in 1998 that Pasty Central itself would eventually cruise in to Kearsarge, a mile up US-41 from Calumet and Still Waters Assisted Living Community, where this project was born. In a couple of months, an exciting new development will be "Pasty Central Express", a drive through window at the new baking facility being built behind the Hut in Kearsarge. Shortly thereafter we hope to put the restaurant itself back into service, with its full menu and family-friendly atmosphere.

more tomorrow

Good Morning everyone. HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!!!
Make it a great day.

Happy Easter to all of you. We are enjoying a beautiful day today. Must get ready for church!

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 11:31 am:

Just back from church. Happy Easter all!

Love the picture of the boat in Kearsarge. My
dad and his brother had a photo taken there
when they were little wearing knickerbockers.
We have pictures of our children in their youth
too. Wonder what people will think of their
clothes in another sixty years...

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 11:53 am:

Happy Easter everyone! Just got back from Church and did light a candle for Mikie's grandson, Joseph. I hope it helps.

My dear friend Laurie, I know you're reading these even though you're not doing any posting, but I wanted you to know that I also lit a candle for your daughter that she may carry your first grandchild to term. Prayed for both her and little Joseph.

It's strange, I'm looking at the boat in Kearsarge and "Sink the Bismarck" is playing on the radio. I don't know why, but I find that ominous.

Time to go and finish preparing my feast for the day. I hope everyone enjoys the day. Looks like rain here in MN, but they say once it comes and goes it's going to be a beautiful day. Maybe once everybody is gone I can get outside and enjoy the day.

What a great picture of the boat! It's the
landmark we use to turn off to get to my
brother's place on Traprock Valley Rd. When I
see the boat, I know my 500 mile drive is
almost over.

Kosk...continuing our conversation from yesterday. My daughter is Shoshone...her great, great, great, great...grandmother is Sacajawea, who was married to Charbonneau (on my daughter's father's mother's side of the family).

Growing up in Monroe County, was...ahem...rather interesting for my daughter, as it was the hometown of General Custard...ahem. Let's just say, that I made sure she didn't attend school on the day, when they had their annual school trip to the General Custard Museum.

One time, my daughter and I were stuck in traffic in town, right in front of the General Custard statue, and my daughter remarked, "if that's supposed to be his last stand, then someone needs to glue some arrows to that statue". :)

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 09:05 pm:

Sur5er, That is so cool about your daughter. That must have been a very interesting situation for her. Isn't it Custer though? Or do you call him that on purpose. At least she's got a sense of humor about it all with the arrows comment. It got me laughing.

Mikie, I'm so happy that your grandson seems somewhat better. Maybe he's on the upswing now. You're right, 18 pounds is nothing for a one year old. I have cats that weigh nearly that much. I'm sure everybody will continue to pray that he stays on that upswing. My candle will burn for him for a while.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 09:28 pm:

Deb thanks for the prayers and the candle.
Sur5er, I did a reenactment for some years in Monroe for the French and Indian war. My brother the great sage, was at a meeting at the Custard* museaum and called the great man a mass murderer, imagine the roar that caused. Custard* is considered a saint in that area. Love your daughters comment, maybe we could pull that off some time.
*intentional spelling

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 10:31 pm:

Sur5er, that is really interesting to actually learn of someone who is related to Sacajawea.She has been one of my favorites and I have read several books on her.

Great news about little Joseph. A lot of us prayed for him today and will keep on until he is fully recovered. I know Grandpa Mike and the rest of the family were happy to see him wanting "down"

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Sunday, April 16, 2006 - 10:32 pm:

Mikie and Usedtobeayooper...Yikes, I must have been thinking about food, when I wrote, Custard instead of Custer..sorry bout that.

Mikie, High 5 for your brother calling Custer a mass murder. I referred to him as a serial killer, to my daughter. And yes, you are so right about Custer being considered a saint in Monroe, that they couldn't see him for what he really was.

For some reason, they leave out the part where Custer waited until the men of the tribe were out hunting...and then he and his cavalry would ride in and murder the women, children, and elderly of the tribe. That plan of attack against Native Americans continued, until Custer's last stand...also known as the first time the men of the tribe were home, when Custer came a knockin. Surprise :)

Ok, who has some super glue...and some rubber tipped arrows? That would be fun though, eh. Mikie did you hear about the time someone spray painted a certain part of Custer's horse, on that statue, florescent orange? Now that was funny. Oh yeah, I got to shake the hand of the person who did that :)

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 12:25 am:

I know the person who put the diaper on the horse back in the eighties. Police went wild looking for him, he is one of the cities finest, they will never know who he is.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 12:28 am:

by the way I do know how to make real arrows with flint and arrow wood. Would be happy to supply the needed arrows.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 12:43 am:

Mikie, I don't remember the diaper on the horse sorry I missed that one. But shouldn't the diaper have had gone on Custer...being how much of a baby he was, and all ;)
I may just take you up on the offer of the arrows ;) But as my daughter said before, you use the arrows with the plastic suction cups at the end...douse them with some superglue...and aim :) So how good of an aim are you?

By Liz B (Lizidaho) on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 11:10 am:

The USS Sacajawea will be christened in San Diego CA in July. My Shoshone friend's Mom is also a direct decendent and will be there. Let me know if I can put you in touch.

By Julwisc (Julwisc) on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 11:27 am:

I don't believe vandalism (even on a Custer statue) should ever be applauded, encouraged, or laughed about. Not a good example to our young people. Custer was definitely a flawed individual, but I don't think we should pass judgment on him on the basis of today's attitudes. He was living in a different era. Now, I'm not here to say that everything he did was "right." Obviously not. However, I will state that my great, great grandfather served under Custer during the Civil War. He had the utmost respect and admiration for Custer until he died in 1913. He was always proud to have served under his command. By the way, my great, great grandfather married a Cherokee woman.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 07:57 pm:

Liz, My daughter will be over tomorrow, so I will show her your post :) Her paternal grandmother is the historian of the family...and when she retired several years ago, she set her sights on the history of the family tree. I believe my daughter also said that she had obtained a book, with the family's heritage also. I will have to double check on that.
Is your friend a direct descendent of Sacajawea? Wow, wouldn't that be something, eh, if there was a relation there. I'll also, definately have my daughter send your post onto her grandmother, so your friend and her can she is the family historian.
Thank you :)

By Liz B (Lizidaho) on Tuesday, April 18, 2006 - 09:45 am:

I would love to put your daughter and her grandmother in touch with my friend. He will talk to his mom. She has been asked to be in San Diego as an honored guest. She had to prove her direct lineage. She is 84. She is full blood Shoshone from Salmon and Lemhi Idaho area.
She currently lives on the Fort Hall Indian reservation between Pocatello and Blackfoot ID.
Please contact me through my email address.
