Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 07:54 am:

I recognize 3 of these Still Waters residents: (L-R) Linnea Filpus, Elaine Kallio, and Esther Korpi. Looks like another next to Linnea that I can't make out. The Pasty Cam caption 8 years ago today simply said, "Some of our ladies at Still Waters Elders Home in Calumet enjoy the morning sunshine". I wish now that I had identified them all in the photo.

I remember that morning like it happened yesterday. It was Memorial Day in 1998, a very pleasant morning with no black flies out yet. And I remember snapping the picture as I arrived (by the angle of the sun) at about 9am. The smell of freshly mowed grass, the singing of the birds... Closing my eyes I can remember who the fourth lady was: Mamie Pelto. We've met so many wonderful people over the years at Still Waters.

more tomorrow

But the picture wasn't posted until 7:54! You have to know how to play the game!

N.P. Deb...but as Marsha says, rulz is rulz...that's what the refresh button is for!

where is Mikie? Off pouting because he had to share his award?!! It's going to tak me some time to decide what kind of meal I want from him. Any suggestions girls? LOL He's such a great chef, I can't let him get off easy can I? Maybe you gals can join me in the big feast!!
Deb, what happened to your son yesterday? You've got all of us curious. At least us women are. It's a beautiful day here. I have my windows opened & I'm listening to the birds chirping outside. Just love that sound.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 10:32 am:

Congratulations Tim, I spoke to Ron Howard and just hung up from talking to Tom, I nixed him playing me and think it should be Robert Redford. I was thinking of Farah to play Precious, and Jamie Lee Curtis to play Cotton. It will include a scene of us having dinner at the Hut and will have Bob, what Redford ask his friends to call him, munching on a Pasty and commenting on how good they are. I have to leave now to put my tent up at the Feast in Port Huron but will be back at about three. Have a great day,sunny and warm.

day is better today than yesterday!!
Waiting to see you on 'the big screen' Mikie!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 12:58 pm:

Mikie has already been on TV...... Rememeber those Life cereal commercials from the 70's??

"I don't if it's good, you eat it!!" "No way. Hey, let's give it to Mikie, he eats everything!!"
He likes it!!!

Lol, sorry Mike, couldn't resist. It's getting to be a lot like summer here; 90 degrees and 90% humidity.....

Jay Fedorocko sent me this picture of a newborn fawn along with a story about his discovering it!


I was mowing by the horse pen when a singular deer appear. An oddity on this farm since I have never seen a deer by itself in the 19 years I have lived here.
It seem determined to go some place, yet it's movements were not quite typical being less then fluid. It rounded the pen and walked across the drive towards the house. I just kept mowing the small area before moving over to the other side of the stream. About a half hour later, I see a small rusty color object up by the older Chassell Township well. Clueless. Then the winter-coated adult deer appeared.
I was seeing her newborn baby in its spotted rusty brown summer coat. How exciting! I kept mowing circles around the tree until finished, while watching the two. I put the tractor back in the garage, put a unknowing beagle in the house and grabbed the camera. I found the two at the stream side. Mom took off as I expected she would, then I saw the 12" high fawn crossing the stream. Probably it's first time. The fawn went into 'still' mode. I sort of rushed the pic taking before I lost the opportunity.

Newborn Fawn

Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 04:03 pm:

Capt. Paul,The Mikie that you are refering to is quite a bit younger then I. I am a little more choosey of the food that I eat. Plain cereal,ugh if I eat it I use yogurt instead of milk, and try to stay away from that type of processed food, remember the ego has to eat also, breakfast around here can consist of fried Spam, hashbrowns, and eggs. Or possably fried bologna, fried baked potatoe, and eggs. But never ever Life cereal. I was in several Chrysler ads during the late seventies, when they filmed them in my plant. At the time my brother in law was the news director at channel seven in Detroit. So I am not new to the film industry. I also have been on the History channel in the story of the French and Indian war and also in the Washington bio. Last year I was Ben Franklin in several reenactments. So you are dealing with a minor star. Don't think that yesterdays award wont go into my bio even if I had decided to share it with Cotton. Even though my parts were small, remember their are no small parts, only small actors, or something like that.

By JanieT (Bobbysgirl) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 05:58 pm:

Enjoyed the fawn story! Life is good on the farm, I couldn't and wouldn't live anywhere else.

I will be heading to the Upper Peninsula this
weekend...hopefully on Saturday. Does anyone know
if there is any road construction along the way?

By Margaret, Amarillo TX (Margaret) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 07:14 pm:

Didn't get this quite in before dawn today. Graduation at the old work place. Total for year was 62 graduates and it was 23 of them today. We had disturbing news from one of the grads: Zachary's best friend killed himself yesterday evening and he died last night. Needless to say, I was up 'til 2 a.m. talking with kids and parents. But the graduation was good. Time moves forward. Summer school begins Tuesday.

for is a good website for State travel,1607,7-151-9621_11008-112453--,00.html

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 10:11 pm:

Isn't there anyone out there?

By Downstatedon (Downstatedon) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 10:34 pm:

Tom Ghering: Thanks for the website. It's always
good to know what delays you'll be facing.

By Downstatedon (Downstatedon) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 10:39 pm:

Mikie; Everyone has taken cover from the storms.
You must have had some down your way?

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 10:58 pm:

I am a Yooper and I challenge the lighting by standing out in the pasture [back yard] waving my sword in the air and nothing happens. The rain flows off my freshly shaved head and puddles at my feet. Rain storms, lightning, something for a true Yooper to show disdain for. So all you brave lads and lasses come and join me in the lighting challenge dance. It works something like the snow dance in the winter. Instead of Heiki Luta [sp] we have the Pipere of French Canadian lore.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Thursday, May 25, 2006 - 11:02 pm:

Deb, Have a safe trip, and if I have a recipe I can make anything. Marsha, You have my condolonces. Lost both of my parents a few years ago and still miss both of them.

Jay... What a beautiful new creature you welcomed into this world! And to think you captured this joyful event on Creekside Farm. Thank you for sharing your delightful story and photograph. You always present the best of nature.
