Floyd, after all these years I have to confess I kept your phony ID because in a dark bar I could pass for you. Remember they didn't have pictures on the IDs back then. I guess I owe you one...
So Sunday I'm sitting on the grass watching my 10 year old nephew play socker and among the crowd of young parents walking around was this lady walking towards me with a freaking faded 'Tomahawk Wisconsin' t-shirt on.
Until then I thought I was the only person in the SF Bay Area that ever heard of our beloved town.
Turns out her grandparents are from Merrill and passed on to her their cottage on Silver Lake...only a short distance from Road Lake. Her husband and kids go up there every summer for 2 or 3 weeks vacation.
Their last names are Stillman. No relation to anyone around Tomahawk. Her husband and family are from Canada. I didn't get the grandparents name.
On Saturday I was wearing my old 'North For The Forth' t-shirt.
If I would have been wearing it Sunday it would have been some cosmic event to have bumped into this lady. Heart attack city !!!
What a coincydinky! I need a drink! That was way too freaky when I saw her walking towards me.
NOBODY knows about Tomahawk, Wisconsin around here!!! NOBODY knows about Wisconsin around here !!! Heck, when I tell someone I'm from Wisconsin they go into their stupid Fargo routine...wrong state, dude.
What do you all think...should I be worried ???
Serious comments only...
