I received this in an email the other night, if found please return or call me at the Bar and I will make sure it gets back to the little girl. Thanks, and I’ll buy you dinner if you find it.

Hi Tom,

If anyone finds a black hardcase saddle bag with orange reflective tape and a little girls clothes and iPad mini it is my 6yo daughters. We were on 8E to 3N from Bergland to Houghton. Not sure where if fell off! Thanks for posting!!

Kindest Regards,

Oh what to say about the trails, 8 from Ironwood was horrible and 13 north was the first of ours as usual to get tore up. Tons of sleds in and out of town yesterday, the trail in front of the bar looked like a freeway at times. Conditions did not get real bad in most places from what I heard, after today temps supposed to go down and stay down through next weekend. Some snow is also in the forecast a couple of days. Holiday next Monday so expect a busy weekend. Snow is falling now with 3-7 inches expected between today and tomorrow.


Sal Wallerstein was at the country club for his weekly round of golf. He began his round with an eagle on the first hole and a birdie on the second hole.

On the third hole he had just scored his first ever hole-in-one when his cell phone rang. It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just been in a accident and was in critical condition and in ICU.

The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was and that he’d be there as soon as possible. As he hung up he realized he was leaving what was shaping up to be his best ever round of golf.

He decided to get in a couple of more holes before heading to the hospital. He ended up playing all eighteen, finishing his round shooting a personal best 61, shattering the club record by five strokes and beating his previous best game by more than 10. He was jubilant….

Then he remembered his wife. Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital. He saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about his wife’s condition. The doctor glared at him and shouted, “You went ahead and finished your round of golf didn’t you! I hope you’re proud of yourself!”

“While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself at the country club your wife has been languishing in the ICU! It’s just as well you went ahead and finished that round because it will be more than likely your last!

For the rest of her life she will require round the clock care and you will be her care giver! She will need IV’s; you will have to change her colostomy bag every 3 hours; she will have to be spoon fed 3 times a day and don’t forget the hygiene care.”

The man broke down and sobbed.

The doctor chuckled and said, “I’m just fucking with you. She’s dead. What’d you shoot?”
