Re: Run, unclemick! (unclemick checks in on page 8!!!)

Just got home from work and checked the board first thing, so good to know you are none the worse for wear!

I was on an elevator with an elderly gentleman at the hospital last week and we nurses in the back were doing the Hi, how are ya? Have a good day thing. He turned to look at us and said, rather shortly: Any day you get up and you're not in the obituaries is a good day! *We all just sort of smiled and nodded politely. As he exited the elevator his parting shot was: *I cheated the Devil out of another one, heh, heh, heh!

Glad you did too, Uncle Mick ( and the family).

Judy

Unclemick - welcome back. I look forward to any and all stories. Why St. Joe? Did you just keep driving like the old settlers - look out over a valley and say this is the place?

Also, just for curiosity sake I gotsta know....is mick2 word play for McCormick? (I saw a picture of a guy by that name walking through fish camp wreckage on Hwy 11 ...)

I've been cleaning up the garage and my old files...well you don't have to do that for a while...

Sorry to say one of my memories of the area was the somewhat incredible flooding produced by the Missouri River in the late 1980's
Similar to my 1 experience in the area. In June 1984 I flew to KC to participate
in the Bike Across Kansas. I left my stuff at my friends parents house in NW
Kansas City. The ride was great, but halfway through the whole house
flooded to about floor+1 foot, leaving everything smelling of raw sewage.

Hey, unclemick, glad to see you landed safely.* *Sorry to hear about the fish camp.* *That's got to be tough.

I just found and read an interesting research project from some Yale grad student about Lake Catherine:

Lake [St.] Catherine

Sounds like a very cool place.

Re: Run, unclemick! (unclemick checks in on page 8!!!)

Great to hear you and yours are OK, uncle. I figured you had more than enough sense to clear out well ahead of the trouble. Let us know how things are in "Missourah".

Fascinating paper, even a photo of UncleMick's donut shop cronies!* (ok, okay:* bait shop)* and now I know what a fish camp looks like.* I had pictured uncle mick in some sort of creepy deep dark bayou shack, alligators, deliverance music, you know...

Glad you're OK, unclemick!

Glad to hear from you....even though we really knew you left early and were too smart to wait the storm out.

Re: Run, unclemick! (unclemick checks in on page 8!!!)

Interesting article - for a Yale person - I knew all the people/places shown in the pictures.

Alas - like Hayne boulevard camps(after 1998 hurricane) - I suspect rebuilding will not be permited - historical memory now.

Lola's stuffed crabs are now in the Gulf of Mexico - along with our frigerator.

We're going to take the day off and putz around St. Joe.

Hmmm - I just counted - 5 Jimmy Buffett shirts(Aloha?) - 5 shorts and two pair Dickies coveralls summer weight.

Heh, heh, heh, heh, - DUH? - when does winter come to Missouri?

I'm so glad to hear from you UncleMick! It is amazing how someone you've never met can make you worry so. I do hope that you get settled in ok in Missouri.

I also hope that your S.O. will be able to rebuild her chunky jewlery collection ~ ha!

UncleM: data on St. Joe, including climate data: http://www.city-data.com/city/St.-Joseph-Missouri.html

Starts getting into the 40s in November.

St. Joe, birthplace of Walter Cronkite and Eminem.

Looks like a pretty nice area to live. Gonna be a temperature adjustment though. Fairly cold during the winter compared to what he has been use to. A complete change of seasons might be nice tho. Don't get much of that in the deep south.

Uncle Mick: I spent some time on GoogleEarth investigating St. Joe. I believe I've found two possible donut shops for you. I'm currently trying to appraise the quality of the Bismarks and other jelly-filled products.

I also have a used piece of junk snowblower to help you begin the new accumulation phase in Missouri--if you want it. Sometimes all it takes to start a new pile is one item. For septic, you're on your own.

Re: Run, unclemick! (unclemick checks in on page 8!!!)

Do you know what it means, to miss New Orleans..?? Glad you made it UncleMick. Hope you like St. Joe. You traded a hurricane every so often for months of snow and cold weather. Oh well, if you're retired and got the moola, why not?

How about a little blow-by-blow on Katrina? Anything you want to share? Did you escape on Sunday or wait till it actually hit??

Re: Run, unclemick! (unclemick checks in on page 8!!!)

Hey unclemick,

While I don't have much info on St. Joe, if you've ever thought about the great metro St. Louis area, I could give you the low down on my backyard

Good luck on finding a new place.

--Peter
