    I was twelve when I first heard “Yesterday”. For some reason it was again on my mind—yesterday. I think I will spin a few Beatles’ records today. A new remixed version of “Revolver” arrives Saturday.

    The Big Lake, as we affectionately call Lake Michigan, noting that Lake Superior is superior in size, serves up many wonders of weather, such as that roll cloud, and water spouts, and it is surfable, if the winds are right. Did you know that they trained pilots, in WWII, how to land on aircraft carriers on the Big Lake? They’ve actually found a number of planes which didn’t stick the landing on the bottom of the Big Lake.

    It’s a beautiful Fall day here in Michigan, today. 74 degrees, full sun, leaves skittering around in the breeze and gusts up to 22 mph. Most the trees have dropped their leaves, though some stubborn oaks sugar maples still cling to theirs. It’s going to be a beautiful evening to sit on the front porch with a bourbon and a cigar and watch the sun set in hazy glory.

      Enjoy those brief moments while you can. I spent a late Feb through July in the burg of Alma, the middle of the mitten as it is sometimes called and I don’t recall any temps over maybe mid 70s. In July the snow was still trying to slowly melt from the 20′ mountains formed in grocery store parking lots, as it waited in dire anticipation of the arrival of more snow and ice to add to its glory. Most of the men have facial hair, fat yoga pants wearing hippos are every where, pretty women are as scarce as survivors of the Titanic and alcohol breath and bad teeth are the true face of the place.

      Please realize that I’m not attacking Michigan or anyone in it. Just reporting what I remember of my visit to the place.

        Jack, didn’t take it as an attack on Michigan. At least you were in Alma, rather than say Flint, or Detroit. You can find the mix of fat yoga wearing hippos, etc., in just about any locale nowadays, and pretty gals at times seem scarcer, I agree. Snow’s coming. In fact, it’s snowing right now up in the Keweenaw, the Calumet area. Time to tune up the snow shovel, I guess.
