We used to call that area "Smurf Village" when I was a Domino's driver at age 18. It's full of tiny houses and mostly impassable dirt roads. It's a surreal area of our little community.

HEEYYYYYYY!!!! Whats wrong with Fowlerville? Mean streets HAAAAA! ok, besides the fact I live in Fowlerville, whats wrong with it? I didnt think I was ever going to feel "at home" when we moved here in 99' I had always lived in larger towns n cities. But I have since relaxed and glad we landed here.


I lived by Island Lake when I was a kid. I always remember how close together the houses were..


I lived by Island Lake when I was a youngster. I remember sneaking into the Lakes Drive-Inn. Good memories there... Is that sign still there from the old disco that burnt down?


The Main Event! OHHH! Photo blog opportunity! I'll have to check. I was just out that way last week and I don't remember if I saw it or not. I was too busy concentrating on not passing the entrance to Ritter's Frozen Custard, which is where the Lakes Drive In used to be, among other businesses now.


Oh yeah, at one point in highschool I drove a giant Ford 1970s station wagon. I used to ferry 8 or so friends to the Lakes drive-in and the wagon even had the secret compartment under the floor in the back that we would fill with ice and beer for the double feature.

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
