We would like for her to be able to spell her name before age 10! But thanks for the suggestion.

I might have failed to mention this but this new G-daughter, like all my grand children have my charming good looks!

Hello Thread Killers,

Oh the Mackinac Bridge is a lovely bridge but the winds going across can be challenging at times. They have drivers they can call when they have a "timid" driver. They call these drivers "Timies". The can drive semis, RV's, regular cars, motorcycles, and anything you can come up with. Even a Prius!

A driver just approaches one of the check in centers and ask for a Timie and someone is called. Vehicles have been "blown" off the bridge so be aware of it.

You cannot access Mackinaw Island any way but with a boat, ferry, or swimming across. Yes, there are vehicles there but unless you need an ambulance or firetruck, you will never see one. The horses that draw the carriages are taken over by ferry every season. It's interesting. A new horse is tied to two old horses to get them across. It apparently is not their favorite ride.

The island is beautiful, they have a old fort at the top, a path you can ride your bike on all the way around the Island. The Grand Hotel is beautiful, you have to pay to go on the porch and take a picture, but it is lovely. A lot of the hotels do NOT have AC since they keep the island original. Just in case you want to stay.

HELLO NAVY! Meet up in August 2017. Already have one planned with another thread group so may or may not make this one. I could come teach classes on "SAVING THE THREAD"!

LOLT The Girl

Congratulations on the Granddaughter.
Maybe someday she will grow up to be a human cannon ball .

Bring her to the symposium, we can toss her around and get her use to flying.

When we were there you did not have to pay to go on the porch. I enjoyed going through the hotel as we had seen the movie Somewhere through time with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour. It was still the same.

We went across the bridge on motorcycles. The asphalt lane was closed so we had to drive on the expanded metal deck.

No worries going across the bridge. If the winds are high they close the bridge.

The only vehicle in my recollection that went off the bridge was a little car driven by someone who didn't understand the overhead illuminated speed limits. The higher the wind the slower the posted speed limit. I have driven cars, a semi, a C class and an A class over the Might Mac and had no problems at all. Has there been others go over?

You realize how high it is when you are crossing over and notice the 1000 foot lake freighter below you looks only about an inch long.

The freighter looks smaller when you are looking at it through the expanded metal deck from the seat of a motorcycle. And the holes in the deck look to be about one foot square!

Sorry pop, thanks for getting us back on track. Seems we've gone across the wrong bridge and lost our since of mission. Guess it's back to the important things like planning the Thread Killer Symposium, firing cannons and killing this thread!

Maybe at the symposium I can jump my motorcycle on a ramp and see if I can go further or farther ( don't know which is correct ) than the person who gets shot out of the cannon.

Volunteers to ride shotgun being accepted.

Now this is how to kill a thread. . . . . Mindless rambling.

Mindless Rambling? Isn't that like wrapping your own Easter eggs or hiding your own Christmas presents?
