Horseflies seem to hate hats with a large brim on it. I wear a Tilley hat and they don't bother me. They do a couple orbits around my head and then disappear.

Roc had bad BO so they are naturally attracted to him.

Well yeah, the occasional shower would probably help in that regards.

On the hunt for Bigfoot

Bigfoot Bash VI coming July 16

He said Marc DeWerth, director of the Ohio Bigfoot Conference — the largest one of its kind east of the Mississippi River — is slated to be on scene.

“You come and you listen and you hear what people say,” he said. “Everybody’s got a little different opinion. Whether it proves anything to anybody, I don’t know. But certainly there’s a lot of information out there — a lot more than people realize.”

Even after nearly a decade of research, Shaw said he’s still learning new information about Bigfoot. He said there have been three sightings in the region of a Bigfoot at least 10 feet tall.

“I’ve seen trees broken off you wouldn’t believe,” he said. “I just don’t believe anything else could’ve done it or would have done it. At this point to me it’s not a matter of if — which is where most people are at — to me it’s a matter of where are they? With how many stories I’ve heard, they’ve just got to be here. And they’ve got to be all over the world.”

Rock greats, up-and-comers to take the stage at Rock the Woods

CLINTON TWP. — Rock ’n’ roll music will ring out from the Skyline Event Center July 16 when the first Rock the Woods concert takes center stage from noon until midnight.

“Michigan had a big part of the history of rock ’n’ roll,” said Tim Jenks, chairman of the Economic Development Alliance for Oscoda County. “Some of the biggest bands in rock ’n’ roll came from Michigan, and some of those guys are still playing, and we’ll have them on stage. Two of the players from The Frost — Donnie Hartman and Bobby Rigg — are going to be on stage. The Frost could fill Olympia stadium or Cobo Hall back in the days when the Rolling Stones couldn’t. Rhett Yokum (of the 202 Band) is 22, and he’s one of the emerging stars. You’re going to hear about him someday. He’s a protege of (blues legend) Larry McCray.”

The lineup includes the 202 Band, the Little Band from Alpena, the Donny Hartman Band, the Rocket 88’s, Fat Pocket and the Slick Jimmy Band.

“We’re trying to aim first for the local or regional bands and try to spread it around. I don’t want to do six bands from Alpena either,” Jenks said, noting the plan is for each band to take the stage for roughly two hours.

“It’s just a very interesting mystery,” Shaw said. “We don’t know it all. I think that the different researchers lend a different viewpoint. We’ve got a variety of people who’ve been studying the Bigfoot thing. We’ll have a PowerPoint presentation and a bunch of footprint casts and stuff for people to learn more about Bigfoot. It’s mostly just listening to various speakers talk about various aspects of Bigfoot research. I’m actually talking about the connection with the Bible, which is a big thing to me. I think they’re very clearly described in the Bible — Genesis 25.”

Tomorrow (Wednesday) marks the 80th anniversary of the hottest day ever recorded in Michigan history. On July 13, 1936, the temperature reached 112°F in Mio, Michigan. I think I read somewhere that Goose was fixing a blueberry crumble pie that day.

Only 80 right now - feels great after 95 and humid yesterday. That may be our worst day of the summer.

What was it like that one hot day in 1936? Did you bake in the kitchen or just roast around a fan?

I was still farming back then so was in the field spreading manure behind a pair of gassy Percherons.

I guess that's close enough. I also see that Amiel has his shirt untucked in back, and that's going to be a problem for the Elders.

People soak that Amish stuff up. There's a fairly large community just north of here, probably 5x10 miles of mostly Amish families. On the weekends the tourists swarm the places buying things and just watching them work. They make pretty good bank just being Amish.

As if you'd know. You're afraid to leave your little enclave and find out.

And BTW - I guarantee you there are 10 Walmarts closer to you than there are close to Mio. So tell me more about your elitism.

Nope, I'm sure we've got more canoe liveries, fly shops, campgrounds, camp fires, deer, trout, Amish farms - all those bland things that can't hold a candle when you're measuring quality of life by how many Dollar Palaces and Walmarts you have like Bob does.

I kinda thought this was a satirical thread and that the op was sorta laughing at the innocence of mio dwellers. Looks like the op got a little pissed off at bob. I thought bob was playing along.

It's semi satirical but in a kind way. Bob just gets nasty with those he considers beneath him.

My original point was to be that yes, a lot of the stuff is small town and kind of hokey but people in rural America do have lives and do very well thank you very much. IF you go back through the pictures take note of how many are happy and smiling. They're in the majority not the backward miserable son of bitches that Bobby considers them to be.
