Hike to Miners Falls

We hiked a one mile round trip trail into the cool autumn world of the northern mixed hardwood forest in the UP of Michigan. At the end of the trail were 77 steps leading down to the viewing platform at the falls where Miners River cascades some 60 feet over a sandstone outcrop. Note the big stick that Jerry carries. And he says he is not afraid to use it on knuckleheads and bears! Jerry hiked halfway to the falls and stood guard for us.

Unexpected Visitors at Work

The most amazing thing happened today at work.

A few days ago, they came and took our copy machine away because we are getting a new one. (Ok, that’s not the amazing part… duh.) Anyway, if a customer wants just one copy of one page, we can do it on our fax machine. So today, a lady came in wanting to copy the 1902 marriage certificate of her grandparents, Emily Larson and Eric Rhodman. As I was watching it inch its way out of the fax machine, I saw the signatures of the two people who signed as their witnesses: Mr. A.G. Anderson and Mrs. A.G. Anderson. Yes, it was clearly Grandma's and Grandpa’s. I’d recognize those signatures anywhere. What a treat to run into Grandma and Grandpa in the middle of an otherwise uneventful workday!
