Remember when I used to write here every day or almost? Ah, those were good times… I’m seeing a lot of LJ posts that go something like that these days, so maybe it’s not just me. Well, in my case, maybe it is.
Anyway… I have just learned that of the Seven Wonders of the U.P. (that’s Upper Peninsula of Michigan), I’ve only seen four of them—Tahquamenon Falls, Brockway Mountain, Lake of the Clouds, and Pictured Rocks. Maybe the days between Blissfest and the Hiawatha music festival will be devoted to seeing the other three, Bond Falls, Agate Falls, and Kitch-Iti-Kipi. (You can see photos of the seven at the link above.)
Funny thing is, I always thought staring out across Lake Superior was one of the wonders, along with the Manitou Paymen Highbanks northwest of St. Ignace. I may have to make my own list with photos.
“Golden Girls” aimed to show “that when people mature, they add layers,” she told The New York Times in 1985. “They don’t turn into other creatures.

Y’know, I think she’s right. I’m old enough now that this really strikes me. (Only I think I’ve a young man living inside me. Y’know.)
