Becker and I would like to thank all of you that have helped make the Bergland Bay Bar one of the best in the UP. Maybe even in the whole fricken world. I want to personally thank all the locals that excepted me even though I was nothing more than a FIB who came to your town and married the best looking single Lady (well any Lady) in your town. I did marry her because of her heart and not because of her looks though. All the Fishermen, Snowmobilers and tourists that we have met and over the years and became life long friends with. All of you have a place in our hearts and we could never begin to thank you enough. But Thank You.

The torch as officially been passed. Shelly and Les are running the Bay Bar as the new owners. Congrats you two. They through a nice Party for Becker and I at the bar last night. Thank you to everyone that showed up.

I am off to Iron Mountain in the morning with Becker to get started on the second to last week of her treatments. Yep she has only 9 more sessions to go. I am going to spend the week with her and I’ll be back on Friday.

As you have me working today writing this post I may take off a few days and not post anything. Don’t worry the posts and trail reports will continue. I’m just going to practice doing nothing for a few days…………..to be continued.


Retirement: It’s nice to get out of the rat race, but you have to learn to get along with less cheese.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles. (and condoms) 

An old geezer, who had been a retired farmer for a long time, became very bored and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: Dr. Geezer’s clinic. “Get your treatment for $500, if not cured get back $1,000.”

Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know anything about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get an easy $1,000.

So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic

This is what happened.

Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?”

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”

Dr. Young:  “Aagh! This is gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young gets annoyed and leaves in a haste. He’s angry now, and spends the next few days trying to figure out a way to recover his money. He returns to Dr. Geezer’s office once he thinks of a clever plan…

Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Dr. Young: “Oh no you don’t. That is Gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young, after having lost $1000 total, leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak. I can hardly see!”

Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so… Here’s your $1000 back.”

Dr. Young: “But this is only $500…”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”

Moral of story — Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an old “Geezer “
