First off, Happy Birthday to my lady Leigh. Her 30th.

02. She’s a great sister to like 17 or 18 McKolay siblings.
03. She’s a good daughter to proud parents.
04. She’s a good friend to like 3000 people in Traverse City.
05. She can pour the stiffest of drinks, at high altitudes.
06. She knows about rocks and geothermal issues.
07. She can “cut a rug” when she has to.

10. She’ll hike any trail, regardless of terrain or condition.
11. She’s just about done with a big ass college degree.

14. She’s “evolved.”
15. She’s got a good head of hair.
16. She’s got a big laugh and let’s it fly all the time.

18. She’s got a good, strong, responsible work ethic.
19. She’s generous with her loot.
20. She’s a ‘leftist’ as it gets, so take that, you conservative warhogs.

We are heading up to Mackinac Island for the day. No reservations. No plans. No rules. Forecast of heavy rain. No big whup. We are going anyway. Heck yes. Been waiting for this one for some time.

A small but potent collection of type-on-door images. I can’t wait to get an office of my own, someday. And a glass door. I already have a fella in mind to do the work I’ll need done on it. (Via AceJet170.)

Happy Day. Hope it was fun. Oh, and thanks Leigh for the soda last year when Aaron Chad and I came up to the top for drinks. I forgot to thank you then.
