Safe travels

I’m eagerly anticipating the Labor Day weekend. We’ve had some really nice summer days recently, and it looks like it will continue for a while yet.

Also got the house ready for a mystery guest (not to me, but to you — my reading audience). Actually, it’s an old co-worker so we should have a good time remembering all the laffs we had and roaming the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula.

BTW, if you’re in the area and looking for something to do. Labor Day Monday typically marks the Mackinac Bridge walk on the other side of the Upper Peninsula. To get people off their duffs, Portage Health System and the cities of Hancock and Houghton are having a bridge walk of their own — over our very own Portage Lake Lift Bridge.

Registration starts at 8 a.m. Monday at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts at Michigan Tech University. They’re expecting a few hundred people, and I hope to be there.
