Toivo, last night in AK on Friday, September 5, 2003 - 05:38 am:

(Ooooh - - up a little late, or a little early for folks on the east coast)

One of the earliest Gallery members was Rick Anderson, the guy who takes all the great aerial views - - but I see he has added a lot of down-to-earth shots in his album - - including this one. With all the busyness of life, sometimes I would gladly switch places with that swan, who doesn't seem to have a care in the world.

Guess I'm just a little nervous about flying. But the day has finally arrived to wing my way from Anchorage to Honolulu by way of Seattle. Will finish getting all my worldly goods packed up today, bid goodbye to the beater, and embark to the friendly skies. Hope to return to the weekday Pasty Cam Monday morning from the land of pu'uhonua.

Don't forget to vote for your favorites for the 2004 Pasty Cam Calendar! Have a good weekend.

What a beautiful sight to see first thing in the morning! It would certainly be wonderful to be able to see this every morning.

Have a marvelous time in our 50th state, Toivo, but don't forget the way home. Fall is in the air and winter can't be too far behind. Please take lots of pictures to share and don't forget to get one of the beater before you bid her farewell.

Wonderful picture. It's a troll's dream. My fellow trolls at work like the pictures also.
For JKoski who asked about the Winter War....the
Finnish Center in Farmington Hills has tapes on this. They run around $30 (my Royal Marine husband has been coveting them...maybe Christmas). JKoski, do you need an address for them?

Where is this pic taken? It is a camp right?

Just to make everyone aware. I recieved some mail in my box this morning that was listed as I believe the subject name was "Thank you", I know that is one of the many titles given with this virus that is still running through the internet. I had it happen with yahoo with my autism support groups and it seems to travel to whatever sites that you hit the most. Please dont open anything that you are unsure about. Yahoo I expect, but, they just dont know what they are messing with-LOL

Now that's a WOW! Simply too good to be true.

What intrigues me most is the swan. Is it real--and if you how did someone manage to get on the other side of it to take the photo without spooking it? There certainly are swans in the U.P.--I've seen them often around AuTrain, but they're not your typical U.P. lake bird. Beautiful, beautiful picture

By Leslie on Friday, September 5, 2003 - 02:30 pm:

Yes, this would make a good jigsaw puzzle. Distinguishing between the trees and their reflection, picking out the swan, the chairs, the lipstick-colored car and the bright red barn. The wood of the house adding nice texture, and now I see the smattering of pink flowers (rose of sharon?) on the left. And the sunlight on the window and the sunlight on the window reflected in the water. There's a lot to discover here and probably a lot of good memories! OK, I love jigsaw puzzles -- that's why I make them. Not just put them together, but create them (I'm half of U.P Jigsaw Puzzle Co.) It may sound nuts, but my husband and I believe that making jigsaw puzzles is going to help sustain us when we move to the U.P. next spring. But meanwhile, if anyone's interested in helping an organization raise some money and/or you've got a photo that you'd like to see turned into a puzzle or a U.P. Puzzle, let me know! We're open to ideas...

I just returned to Wisconsin after a three week vacation in Eagle Harbor. Since we had lived in Houghton for many years, we made several trips into town. Has anyone out there tried the Four Seasons Tea Room on Shelden Ave. across from Dial Help and next to the Houghton National Bank bldg (can't remember what bank it is now...Wells Fargo, maybe)? That place is a little oasis of charm. Afternoon tea is definitely something we should have more of. Afternoon tea in that place is a real delight.

By Yooper around the world on Friday, September 5, 2003 - 06:00 pm:

Nice shot...alot like this all around the UP...Leslie just a whisper in your ear...

Red camp/house...wood textured shed/barn.

*note the hay loading door just above the two white framed windows...

again just a minor observation not meant to point out the obvious, you have such a keen eye, just wanted to point that out.

Also glad to here about you puzzle venture.

By Y.F. from Eagle Harbor on Friday, September 5, 2003 - 09:09 pm:

Hi Karen in Oshkosh, Yes, isn't the Four Seasons Tea Room great. I have been there several times and twice with the Red Hatters. We had a ball.

By BCT,Mi on Friday, September 5, 2003 - 09:38 pm:

I think they're both barn type buildings. The horse trailer is backed up against the red building and the fence comes right up to the wall of it also as if to corral any animals. What you Think?

By Fran,Ga on Saturday, September 6, 2003 - 12:27 am:

Just gorgeous!!!The U.P. is the BEST!!!! You are right this would make a beautiful puzzle.

By AČ, Royal Oak, MI on Saturday, September 6, 2003 - 01:10 am:

To Y.F from Eagle Harbor: Are the Red Hatters women who meet to have fun wearing red hats and purple outfits? Today we attended an art fair in Rochester Hills, MI, where we saw several booths displaying red hats, purple attire, red/purple pins, necklaces, etc. Since I'll be moving to the Copper Country this fall (Sedar Bay), I'd be interested to know about such groups in the area.

By ILMHitCC on Saturday, September 6, 2003 - 01:15 am:

Jkoski, et al - You may want to look for the book called "The Winter War" by Eloise Engle and Lauri Paananen, copywrite 1973, published by Stackpole Books in Harrisburg, PA. I have a 1992 printing. My favorite description of SISU is in that book. Very informational and moving rendition of that time.

By Y.F. from Eagle Harbor on Saturday, September 6, 2003 - 10:16 am:

To A2,Royal Oak,Mi,
