"I'LL BET'CHA DIDN'T KNOW THERE WERE AIRCRAFT CARRIERS ON THE GREAT LAKES DURING WW2~~~"I DID NOT KNOW IT, EITHER", BUT I'LL BET'CHA ALL THOSE "MICHIGANDERS" KNEW AND DID NOT TELL US !!~~LOL". The United States had two aircraft carriers operating in Lake Michigan during WW-II. It was an ideal place for new pilots and Carrier crew members to practice operations from a carrier. They didn't have to worry about being sunk by the subs that patrolled just off both of our coasts. Both ships were converted from side wheeler cruise ships operating in the Great lakes at the time. They were converted in less than two months! They didn't have elevators or hanger storage below so pilots started and ended each day at land bases. CLICK~~>
"Just a quick update from Bernie and Sandy Weller. "We left Deer Creek on Friday May 3rd. We spent the night outside Savannah Georgia and toured Savannah the next day. Beautiful city. Drove to the Ocean Sands Resort in Myrtle Beach and checked in and spent the week at Myrtle Beach. Had a great time there. Drove to Charleston West Virginia and spent the night on our way home and got home on Mother's Day in time to stop and see the grandkids before we went home. Have been working for the past four days doing yard work and planting flowers. Beautiful weather here this week in MI and we still have tons to do here. Will leave next Tues. for NY to see Grandkids there and Sandy to have some dental work done from her son, Marc, the Dentist. Hopefully we can stay and visit through Memorial Day. Bernie played golf in his Mon. night league and did not fare so well. Oh well. His game I am sure will get better. Love to all at Deer Creek and everywhere else that Deer Creekers live.."

RON AND MARILYN RUECKL~~~"For those of you who were aware of Ron's loss of voice, we now have some answers. He has a growth on one of his vocal chords. Dr. Garvin will biopsy June 12. Hopefully it is benign and can be removed. This should allow his speaking ability to improve. He is not to use his voice for two weeks after surgery. Anyone available to teach us sign language??? Otherwise things are going good. We finally have warm breezes and green yards.Hope all of you are doing as well. Marilyn and Ron too." RUSS SAYS~~~"RON, WE'RE ALL KEEPING YOU IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!"
UPDATE RON RUECKL & MARILYN.
Russ also says~ "Marilyn~~You do not need "Sign Language" to give Ron what he wants~~~~~ Just have "Everything handy" that you even "think" he may WANT or NEED~~ He can "Point at it !!! LOL" "If you need any more advice from me, just let me know !! LOL !" " Just take good care of our "Leader and Friend" ~~~"And we all know you will !!!"
"THIS IS THE MOST UNBELIEVEABLE THING I"VE HEARD !!!!~~~~~"Nidal Malik Hasan, the U.S. Army major accused of killing 13 and injuring 32 more in a mass shooting at Fort Hood in Texas on Nov. 5, 2009, has been receiving salary payments totaling $278,000 in the three-and-a-half years since being arrested, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reported Tuesday." I agree he has not been tried and found guilty, yet~~~But "Just "Suspend" his salary and give it to him if he's found innocent !!!WHICH IS VERY UNLIKELY~~"I HOPE !" I bet'cha they would not continue "Mine or Your salary" while we sat in jail, eating free food and paying no rent !!!"
THE TIME "RUSS" COOKED A RATTLESNAKE
THIS "STORY" BEGINS WITH A PICTURE THAT TONI AND PAUL BADZIK SENT TO RUSS FOR THIS PAGE~~~ IT IS A GREAT PICTURE AND A "BIG OL" SNAKE" , BUT IT, LIKE A LOTTA STORIES" REMINDED RUSS OF ANOTHER~~~ HERE'S BOTH THE STORIES~~"TRUE STORIES, TOO !!
One big Rattle snake Thanks Paul & Toni Badzik for this one !!
This has got to be the biggest rattler on record.
Pat Long and his son in a blind to hunt hogs near Midway, Texas when this guy poked his head in! Pat's son shot the snake... it's 9'6" long... with 22 rattles, the head more than five inches wide, the fangs 2.5" long. Anybody going for a walk in the woods this weekend? Share with your friends and see who has good snake stories! (From Bruce Gietzen at News Channel 25 in Waco )
"That's That's bigger than the one a guy brought in to me from hunting. He stopped by the bar/package store that I owned, to show it to us~~By the way, it was killed near Carthage, Texas, not too far from Midway. It was draped across the hood of his 1958 Chevrolet, from center of tire, to center of tire !! Esitmate 6.5 feet +. Someone in the group looking at it asked~~"What'r we gonna do with it? I said~~~ "let's eat it,~~ We had lots of cookouts at the bar, cooking whatever someone had killed, or caught. I turned to a customer , that I knew "Would not touch it, and said, "Cal, i'll skin it if you'll hold it for me" . Surprisingly , Cal said "OK" !! So I skinned it and announced we would cook it at 7 pm that evening. Had a "Huge crowd" as we always did when the guys would bring their wives back, and we cooked. SO we grilled it and ate every bite of it~~ !!By the way, the skin stretched and nailed to a 1' X 12' board covered the board !! "
Russ says~~"I've seen some big snakes~~But not a rattler, that big !!"
THS SNAKE, LIKE THE ONE IN "RUSS STORY" IS WHAT IS COMMONLY KNOWN AS A "TIMBER RATTLER", NOT UNLIKE THE REGULAR RATTLERS, DARKER IN COLOR AND FOUND MOSTLY IN WOODS, NOT DESERT AREAS.
