    Thanks to all for your concerns about me. I have not posted for quite some time and apologize for that. We have just listed our home for sale and are looking for a home with a little more acreage with a quieter surrounding. I did shut down the website because my ISP will be changing and there is much to do. Right now I expect to be offline until about the end of November. I will post my new contact information here when it is available to me.

    Glad to hear all is well, and have fun with the move :rolleyes: (I used to move every 2 years or so - work related - hated that)
    See you when you back up and running.

  4. Phew! I was wondering what would happen to the recently acquired Annie here. Wayne, just think about a lefty stainless 12” radius when things settle down, if you would, please.... all the best in the transition.

    I remember back when Gull Lake was the hottest vacation property in Minne. Good luck with your real estate ventures.

    Glad to hear you're OK, Wayne.

    Ben Franklin said, "Two moves equals one fire." After moving from a house we lived in for 25 years, I can well understand that quote. Good luck on the house and move.

    Thanks for keeping in touch, Wayne.

    A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to pass through Brainerd and made a quick stop at Mission Lake. I had t been there since 1979, but recognized pretty much everything I saw.

    I would have looked you up, but it was a flying trip if there ever was one, just on overnighter and a very quick visit with a cousin whom, coincidentally, lives just off of Gull Lake.

    I told my wife the next time we sell our house, it goes with everything in it or we're burning it down.
