This one is for all the folks who worked at Still Waters for so many years. Elizabeth Wertheim was just learning how to double click a mouse on this day 8 years ago.

Elizabeth was a dear lady who spoke mainly German, and was 95 when the picture above was taken in 1999. Her name appeared in our month-end memorial in April 2001.

This is one of my all-time favorite Pasty Cam shots. It happens to be the view from our dining room window.

Good Morning, Everyone! I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving, and that everyone has a safe and uneventful return trip!

Went to check on the kids and lost the bird award. Everyone is up and having pancakes. They all deny that they were involved in the 2007 marshmello raid. Come to find out Precious was involved also. They are all sitting in the dining room giggling about how they fooled grandpa. Justin and Kelly snuck in the house about three and I didn't wake up. Time to get a watch dog. They know how to disable the arlam. They even know where to walk so I wont hear the floor creak.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 09:20 am:

Good morning.

That's what you get for being a good grandpa, Mikie. lol I hear you have snow there.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 09:33 am:

Good Morning to All! Big plans for the day, we are taking our Scottish Terriers, Brimley and Brody, to PetSmart, they love riding in the shopping cart! Up high and can see better, whoohoo!

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 09:43 am:

Just oak leaves here on the ground Deb, no snow it tried yesterday but to no avail. My tree and my neighbors are the last ones in Berkley to drop their leaves, this is from my son in law who has to pick up the leaves from the road. Sponge Bob is on so I have to go and see how he is doing. Can't miss his show, or at least that is what Tim just told me. I told him how I used to watch Roy Rogers and Gene Autry on Sat. but he couldn't figure out who they were. Never heard of the Little Rascles either.

By Uncle Chuck @ Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 09:55 am:

Just a dusting we've had since TG here in Commerce Twp.

Mikie- you're crackin me up- hang in there grampa!

Marianne- thanks for thinking of me on TG, the shoulder is doing fine, YOU'RE THE BEST!

By Margaret, Amarillo TX (Margaret) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 10:34 am:

Hooray for those who are willing to investigate new things. I'm sure it is what gave her her long life. Long live the Elisabeth Wertheim's of this world.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 11:04 am:

Please send Pastycam Prayers for my 34-year-old daughter, Lisa, who was hit by two cars as she crossed the street from the local convenience store to her house in Jacksonville, FL Thanksgiving evening. She had just called us immediately before it happened to tell us she's getting married in the spring. She's in critical, but stable condition, with multiple pelvic fractures and leg injuries. No brain or spinal injuries, though. They did surgery yesterday, today, and will do more surgeries every 48 hrs. to clean out the leg and remove dead flesh. Her stomach was punctured by a bone.

Why do we love hearing Mikie and Sharon's stories so much? Something about your writing style, Mikie, makes your humorous day to day life interesting to all of us!

Good morning from Mishawaka IN. Its 29 and overcast this morning. Still have a tiny bit of snow left on the ground from Thanksgiving. Its suppose to get up to 42 today and maybe a little sun. Mikie - Roy Rogers and Gene Autry - They were the best. I watched them every Saturday morning and the Little Rascles too. Spanky was my favorite or maybe Alfalfa.

By NKR (Nkr) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 11:09 am:

Marsha - My thoughts and prayers are with your daughter and you. I do belive in mircles.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 11:14 am:

Marsha, We'll definitely be praying for your daughter. That's just so sad. I'm glad to hear she's stable and that no serious damage was done to the brain or spine. The other stuff can hopefully be fixed. But it's hard to deal with brain and spinal injuries. We will all be thinking about you. God bless!

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 11:37 am:

Marsha, I can only imagine the intense pain your daughter is in! Not to mention the pain you have as her mother to experience knowing this happened! May you both be blessed with a speedy and full recovery and someday soon this will just be a memory!

By Theresa R. Brunk (Trb0013) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 12:29 pm:

Sending prayers and warm thoughts North to your loved one Marsha. Keeping Lisa and her nurses and doctors in my nighly prayers so that they may have steady hands and strong hearts to assist Lisa in her speedy recovery.

63:9 In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his
presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them
up and carried them all the days of old.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 02:31 pm:

My pal Fr. Bill will pray also.

By Cindy, New Baltimore, MI (Cindy) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 02:34 pm:

Marsha, I am so sorry to hear about your daughter's accident. My daughter is also 34 years old, and I know how painful it would be to see her suffer through what your daughter is going through. My prayers are with all of you. I pray that she will have a fast and full recovery, and that the memories of this horrible experience will fade when she becomes a happy bride in the spring.

By maija in Commerce Township (Maija) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 02:46 pm:

By Erica - Florida Keys (Erica) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 03:30 pm:

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 03:47 pm:

Marsha, my thoughts and prayers are with your daughter and you, for her speedy and full recovery! I am so sorry to hear about the accidents! That is hard to believe that not one, but two cars hit her! Are you to be able to going down to Jacksonville to see her? Best Wishes, and take care!

By Snowman (Snowman) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 05:33 pm:

Sorry about your daughter Marsha, hopefully she will heal. Little Yooper Ali is in bad shape too. She is six months old and has been diagnosed with Leukemia. A rough way to start out in life. Would you Yoopers also pray for her?

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 06:13 pm:

Marsha, prayers from our house being sent up for your daughter, Lisa. May God give her a speedy recovery!

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 06:25 pm:

God's blessings to you, Marsha, your daughter and your whole family. We know from past experience here on the pasty cam that prayers work. Peace and love...

By Paul Oesterle (Paulwebbtroll) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 07:09 pm:

Our prayers and thoughts go out to your daughter and your family Marsha.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 08:06 pm:

Have been thinking about little Ali, Snowman. How is she doing? Have you heard anything? We'll keep praying for her. Poor little thing.

By Uncle Chuck @ Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 08:31 pm:

Thoughts and prayers to Marsha and her daughter, and little Ali, and my niece Katie who is under going treatment for Hodgekins, Wow, we need some good answers and out come for the Pasty family!

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 09:01 pm:

Of course our thoughts and prayers go out to all here with injuries, sickness, suffering and losses. It saddens and befuddles me as to how there has been so much for so many in the past year or so, including my families. The same applys for so many of my friends up on

There is a book out called "Why Bad Things Happen to Good People" I think I ought read it to understand maybe a little of this!

By Pennie (Trolldiva) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 09:09 pm:

Marsha may your daughter have a speedy recovery! After all, she has a wedding to plan. :)

By Charlotte, Mishawaka, IN (Charlotte61) on Saturday, November 24, 2007 - 10:06 pm:

Marsha, you and your daughter will be in my prayers. When I read that she is 34 my heart went out to you. That was the age of my son when he passed away. Moms never stop worring about their kids-no matter what their age.
