Last week I wrote about personal encounters with U.S. Presidents. I received so many responses that I am writing them in a three part series. This is part two. Marcy Lage, a former Greenville resident who lives in Arizona, was a college student working at a hotel in Des Moines. John Kennedy stayed there. When he left the hotel, the staff stood around in the lobby. He came over to her, shook her hand and said, “You did a very good job.” Marcy says, “He was so darn good looking, sun bleached hair and very tan. He was casual and friendly. I have never seen a photo of him that was able to portray how handsome he was. My whole life, I have pretty much told everyone I have ever met, ‘I shook hands with Kennedy!’”
A recent Associated Press article tweaked my thinking about camping in the Upper Peninsula. And yes, it included various outdoor activities that can be done in the winter as well as summer. I have a good friend who lives in the U.P., and he particularly enjoys the fishing and hunting there. He and his family do many other activities there as well, but most of those aren’t in the winter time. Fact is they’re living down in the Lower Peninsula right now!
