Do I get the other half of Heikki's early bird for putting 'Michigan' in there? ;O) LOL

Is that a woman holding those fish in the Minong Lodge ad or do I need a cup of coffee?

Catkins?! Are you calling the Pussy Willows Catkins? I've never heard that word before.

By Michael Du Long (Mikie) on Saturday, May 2, 2009 - 04:42 pm:

Thanks Cindy I had not either.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Saturday, May 2, 2009 - 09:55 pm:

I did a little research on catkins. The catkin is "the downy, (sometimes) drooping spike of blossoms of the willow, pussy willow, birch, etc." It is technically not a plant of its own, but rather the fuzzy "flower" part of various different plants. I learned a new word today...good for me.

The Houghton County Historical Society and the Lake Linden & Torch Lake Railroad was featured on Tracks Ahead on PBS today.
