Sarah's Garage Sale

We helped Sarah and Tom Greene with their garage sale. That meant getting out of bed at 5:30 am. Loading tables in the truck and going to Bolton Street to do the deed. The sale was a great success. Sue was given a tread mill which cost about $1500 new but now has a slipping belt which should be relativly easy to fix with $100 parts and my time.
I enjoyed talking to Tom Greene about the book, Flags of our Fathers, that he lent me. I watched Letters from Iwo Jima last week and had seen the movie, Flags of our Father's a while ago. Both movies are excellant. The book seems to be well written and a credit to the popular historian's craft.

Ghosts and Legends of a Fifty-five Foot Bus

Yesterday, I helped Becky and Gene Solgate move out of the apple business on the corner of Vassar Road and M-46. They had a lot of machinery that they had rented to the Tompkins when they bought the business about three years ago. Everything is move now.
Today, I have a Ghosts and Legends tour in Bay City. This is a step-on tour so it will involve the big buses. That is a problem for the roads at Pine Ridge Cemetery. I may have them park outside. All told, it should be a busy day.
I think I will go over to Dunham's sporting goods to see what they have . I also need to take my book on the Fletcher Native American site back to the Bay City Library.

Labor Day 2007

Today was Labor Day. I uploaded the video I took of the Frankenmuth Dam to YouTube. That makes two I have there now. There was over 80 videos about Frankenmuth on the site.
We spent the rest of the afternoon at the pool with Jim and Fran Hayes, John and Nancy Welch and the Sipes. All of us feel that the days at the pool for 2007 are numbered. Of course, it isn't the same now that all the kids but Julie's are grown.
