there is nothing better on a Hot August Night than to take a night swim in the ULBC pool. The pool is only 4 feet deep. It is great for swimming classes and fun time activities. Or just a lounge in the pool in the evening. The pool is my favorite place to be at camp next to tent city. I never swam in League Lake as I preferred the pool. I did use the lake for rowing. This was a great camp.
This is the property of Big Lodge on Big Bass Lake . How many people know about this place ? I’ve never heard of it so help me out with any comment about it .
this is Sam my beagle dog. He was a great dog with a ferocious appetite. When he was done with his Bowl of dog food and tried for our second dogs food. Buff lightly growled to deter him. Sam was very affectionate but his appetite finally did him in. The veterinarian told us that he found rat poison in some food and ate it. I really love this dog and this hurt a lot. Even buff our second dog missed him. Sam wasn’t with us long but he will be remembered forever.
my grandmother enjoyed old things and was heartbroken when the old Cottage was torn down. It had been her home since coming from Lithuania. My aunt couldn’t wait to move into the new Cottage. My grandmother missed her old kitchen and so did I. She slept on the second floor among bats. These bats are not Louisville Sluggers. It is hard to understand grandmothers. Aside from her kitchen argument everything else about the new Cottage was much better. The bed was sure softer . But to my grandmother that first cabin was her only true home . She never came to accept the new one .
The bigger of these two lakes is Alice Lake . The smaller is Heart Lake . My friend Ed Hawks lives at Alice Lake but will be moving to Big Bass Lake. Does anyone know how Alice Lake got its name?/
Nothing is better to beat the hot Florida sun than a cold glass of water . Tyler had just competed in the obstacle course behind the Bradenton Boys Club . I devised the course and it was very difficult . The boys were timed on about 5 different obstacles . Tyler was very good at this . The best time to have this activity was early morning . Even then the sun was quite hot . The obstacle course was a great physical fitness program .
a few years ago I was walking on noreika Road and all of a sudden I was enveloped buy a Giant Shadow which at first I thought was an airplane. As I glanced up I saw a majestic Eagle overhead. Its wingspan was magnificent. It almost reminded me of the prehistoric pterodactyl. Ben Franklin once said that he wanted the turkey as our national symbol instead of the eagle. I’m glad he lost that vote. Instead we have a lot of turkeys serving in Washington presently.
in May of 2011 a catastrophic F5 tornado took out half the city of Joplin Missouri. The Joplin Boys Club where I had worked in the late 1970s was spared. What has happened since that time? How is the community doing on rebuilding? The major networks covered the tornado greatly but they haven’t been back a whole lot since. So how has Joplin weathered the storm? Leave us a comment and let us know.
I graduated from Wabash High School in 1966 and at that time the building was about 40 years old. Today this High School still stands which amazes me. At our last reunion last year some of my fellow classmates said the building has undergone some renovation. To me the biggest renovation Was the removal of the forest behind the high school. I used to run my two dogs in that Forest and it will be missed . They put a baseball field in its place. I have many fond memories of my time in Wabash including the high school. But Time Marches On. I wish all the best for my fellow classmates and I hope the great community of Wabash continues to grow and prosper .
the salesian Boys Club of Columbus Ohio had 8 bowling alleys! It was located in an old Knights of Columbus building. In addition to the bowling alleys they had a full size pool, a gymnasium with overhead running track, 3 games rooms, and a large arts and crafts area. But the bowling alley made this club unique. The Bowling Center was in use often. The club also had a fully-equipped health center. The Club was located in downtown Columbus right next to Grant Hospital.
