Where did the Ardis furnace get its name?

Morning, Guess Russ beat me to the answer. Still suffering from my bday. Thanks for all the well wishes. Another night of not being able to sleep. Sugar is going nuts and I just was so low 69, that I had to have a piece of bumpy cake. Now I can't sleep. Charlie, we have a new angel from heaven in our family also. Charles Owen Du Long born to Kelly and Justin. He joins Emma and Jack as my sons children. Nine grandkids now. Charlie, don't you feel bad for people who have ugly grandkids?

I love the 2002 picture. The two droplets of water look like eyes looking at ya.' ;O)

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 06:00 am:

Mikie; I would like to think your comment about feeling bad for people who have 'ugly grandkids' is an attempt to say how beautiful Charlies grandaughters are, because as I said, there are NO ugly kids or grandkids.

That is all I have to say on that.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 06:38 am:

Oh-oh, did Mikie open a can of worms? lol!

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 07:17 am:

Yes, all grandchildren and children are beautiful, there is no doubt about that. But...on to a different subject. Don't forget to wish the Capt and Dr Nat a happy 9th anniversary today. Woo hoo! Party time tonight!! Margaritas for everyone!! Have a great one! (If I was still married today would also be my wedding anniversary, but a couple of more years.)

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 07:36 am:

Happy 9th Anniversary Dr. Nat & Capt. Paul with many more to come yet!! A long, long, long time ago Bob & I celebrated a 9th wedding anniversary. We are between the silver and gold anniversaries.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 07:50 am:

Wow...excellent photos today, starting with Dan the Man.
...and don't forget your anniversary Capt :)
Och aye, have a great one!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 07:53 am:

I know Mikie personally. And that comment he made was just saying that everybody thinks their own children and grandchildren are better looking than others. He didn't mean that others grandchildren are ugly, per se. Right, Mikie??

Good morning everybody! Happy 9th Capt. Paul & Dr. Nat!! Hope you celebrate in a fun way.

Finally gonna warm up around here. I think I brought back the cold weather from El Paso because it hasn't been warm since I went down there and returned. But we should be able to get out and go fishing this weekend!

Have a great day!!

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 08:39 am:

What's that saying..."A face only a mother could love"? :) I don't think Mikie means any disrespect. He just cherishes his grandkids as any other normal grandparent would.

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 08:58 am:

Mickill do you have any grandkids? You must have missed Mikie's tongue-in-cheek message. Congratulations Capt. Paul and Dr. Nat. Our 53rd will be coming soon...just living in seperate residents. Much water under that bridge!

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 09:14 am:

Yes, you take pride in thinking your grandchild is beautiful that is the way it should be but, there are other ways to express it. In a lot of ways I really do understand what Mikie was saying, I just think there could have been a different way to express it.

Happy Anniversary to Dr. Nat and Capt. Paul and wishing you many, many more.

By Steve Haagen (Radsrh) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 09:29 am:

Hay all I grabbed this off of Johndee's site, I guess we all did such a good job with the shelter that we can all pitch in and bump up the votes for this also. M8man has had pictures on here in the past so lets all get this done

Help kids in the Keweenaw!


Help kids in the Keweenaw!


Please vote today, for the Tree House in the Pepsi Refresh Contest

Thanks for spreading the word. I attached a flyer all about the Pepsi Refresh Contest. You can use it to remind people that the Copper Country needs help for the Tree House.
There is another contestant in the UP that is competing for a $5,000 grant. I encourage you to vote for them too as this will not affect the Tree House; they are in a different grant category. Here is the link, this benefits toddlers as a safe place to play and learn!

After reviewing their comments, you will find I left a statement for them. May I suggest you leave a comment on their page saying, “I am voting for you in hopes that you will support the Tree House (25K). “
You want to indicate “the Tree House (25K)” in your comments as people voting for the yooper valor quilts will need this information to vote for the Tree House.
If you decide to vote for any other contestants be sure you don’t vote for grants in the amount of 25K, as that will nullify the vote you give to KFRC.

Thanks a million!

Please vote today

Please vote today

ahh, watch this..

You can read all about the Keweenaw Family Resource Center at

This is a great place.

ahh, watch this..

Happy Anniversary to Capt. Paul and Dr. Nat. Also Happy "almost" anniversary to you Cindy and you, too, Kay...I sure chuckled at your posts.

As for Mikie's post...I think most everyone "got" his intended humor, it's just that you can't see his smile or the wink he probably had while typing that comment. It's all in fun, folks!

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 03:12 pm:

Wonderful pictures, as usual.

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 03:40 pm:

Thanks to everyone!! I actually wasn't the one that forgot this morning; it was the Dr who called me at about 7:30 (instead of doing it before I left for work) and said Happy Anniversary because she forgot!! And believe it or not, we won't even go out tonight. Nat has to attend graduation at her college so we won't see much of each other today, but I did promise I would take her to see Robin Hood tomorrow at the theatre. She has been clamering for months to see it; I wonder if it has anything to do with Russell Crowe being in it.......

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 04:40 pm:

For the first 4 years Bill and I were together I could not remember his bithday. I would hate to think what it would have been like if we were married. LOL ;O)

I would like to see Russell Crowe, too. You two have a good evening.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 04:51 pm:

Hey may be able to take advantage of the Russell Crowe situation. Rent a Robin Hood costume and put it on after the movie when you get home. Then hold up a sign that says, "Give to the poor."

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 05:14 pm:

Do not forget the accent.

By Charlotte, Mishawaka, IN (Charlotte61) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 06:25 pm:

Happy Anniversary Dr. Nat and Capt. Paul. May you have many more.
About forgetting dates, I could only remember my husbands birthday when we first started dating by knowing it was on Memorial Day, May 30, until they changed things on me. That was 50 years ago maybe they should switch back to the 30th to help me through my senior years.

By Theresa R. Brunk (Trb0013) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 06:37 pm:

Take a chill pill McKill...Everyone got Mikie's 'humorous' poke at the grandkids of others. Not all comedy is understood by all. This is just one of those times where you just didn't 'get it'. We all have those times. Relax and remember the episode of Sinefeld where "Jerry, come look at the Baby!" was the theme. Then you may get it.

Happy aniversary you two. I wish I was going to see Robin Hood with my best gent on my arm. (wink , wink nudge, nudge)

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 06:43 pm:

Besides, most babies look like Winston Churchill anyways.... is that such a bad thing??

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 09:31 pm:

TO THERESA; I took a 'chill pill' a few postings ago. It seems others are noe leaving me a message.

I never watched Sinefeld, or however you spell the name. Read my posting for 9:14 am. ;O)

By Uncle Chuck at Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 09:35 pm:

I missed alot, belated Happy Birthday Mikie, may you have 50 more! Dr. Nat. & Capt. Paul Happy Aniversary!

Been in Atlanta all week at my National Sales Mtg. Oh what fun! LOL

Can't wait to get to the Yoop!

Kindest Regards,

P.S. Mary, How's are U.P. patients doing, need anything?

By Uncle Chuck at Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Friday, May 14, 2010 - 09:54 pm:

Bear Belly Bar & Grille is open now, wish I was there! See you guys soon!
