The Great Lakes Gazette

The Great Lakes Gazette is a blog that I read regularly.  With so many Michiganders reading my blog, I believe that you might get some real enjoyment out of this blog

Great Lakes Gazette

Kath travels all over Michigan, often off the beaten path, makes many stops and has some really interesting places and people to tell you about.  She’ll tell you where to find a certain food or she’ll report on the Michigan State Fair , an institution that is in danger of disappearing.  There may even be something happening close to where you live, only you don’t know about it…

Ok, I am packing away the megaphone – go and read 🙂

Sky

We have some interesting skies here in Michigan.  I wish I knew how to take GOOD pictures of the sky.

This morning as I was messing around with my vacancy/no vacancy sign for the umpteenth time, I saw this:

the sky across Sis' field

Although it looked pretty dark and scary for a few minutes, the clouds went away and the sky is now a brilliant, lazy blue.
It rained hard last night. That’s how we like it. It is perfect for sleeping and in the morning everything has a fresh, clean new face and the guests can go and enjoy the beach or the dunes or the shops or, or, or…  🙂

And this evening this is what I saw in the north western sky

Oh look there’s a light on in cottage 7’s kitchen 😉

Holy Buckets !

I thought I should share a little tid-bid with you that will make you fall off your chairs, drop your jaws, scratch your heads and make you go “whaaaaa?”

Do you remember Sue McNeal from yesterday at Fusion? Yes you do.
Who can forget the one that had that weird looking sweet and sour meal in front of her! The one that sat next to Hallie Christian.
Sue and I have the same maiden name 😯   That is shocking, in more than one way, because ‘Scheunemann’ isn’t exactly a common name.  It is also strange that she was born in Frankfort, MI and my father, the one who gave me that name, was born in Frankfurt, Germany.
Another interesting thing is the story of the first Christmas tree in Frankfort, MI and how it came here and who brought it here…
It was brought here on a ship from Chicago by Captain Scheunemann.

That’s all I wanted to say 🙂
