I'm not really sure what kind of fish this is. In fact, I don't have the slightest idea. I do know they were quite popular in the Late 60's and early 70's. They were often seen after a large catch of "Square Grouper." Some of you may not be familiar with that term. Suffice it to say, Cheech and Chong's favorite fish was the Square Grouper.

This particular fish sits (stands) outside an art center. The eagle, a fish, and a totem pole are very special to the Native Americans in this part of the country. You see the three displayed prominently in their art. The totem poles feature many different birds and bears, as well.

Nothing says Autumn more than a painted fish. This week we will be featuring some painted fish that inhabit this part of the country. Why do people paint fish? I haven't a clue. In Fort Lauderdale they paint walls, here, they paint fish. There must be some primordial urge in artists to paint, well, anything.

I saw this contraption on Mackinac Island. There are no motorized vehicles on the island. As such, I would assume it is used for delivering water or possibly it may be a fire engine. Maybe it is used to deliver some other liquid;Vodka, perhaps. Any guesses?

I'm sitting in the new FTLDP staff car trying to decide on where to take a leisurely drive to. Yes, the Yugo is no more. The new staff car will have to undergo several changes before it can be displayed to the public-at-large. So here I sit, thinking I could take spin over to Versailles and visit my friend Ciel. Or maybe New York, lots of blogging friends there. Then it hits me, why put anymore miles on the car than I have to. So, I park the car and stroll over to Bishop Antiques. A perfect afternoon for a walk!

Labor Day has passed. The kids are back in school. Time for all the kayaks to be tucked into their bunks for a well deserved rest. Speaking of which, the staff and I will be incognito for a few days. Seems we have located a possible replacement for the FTLDP staff car and will be entering into serious negotiations to acquire it. Since this will demand our full attention, we beg your indulgence and will be back soon.

You ever have one of those days? You're taking a nice leisurely walk like you do every day, and then you notice it. Yesterday it was a house, today it is a roof. What happened to the rest of it? Did it sink or vanish? I'll be taking a new route tomorrow. Some things are better left a mystery.

Bill's Farm Market, Petoskey, Michigan. Has been a family farm for over one hundred years. From the number of people shopping here, it should easily survive another hundred years.Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
