My wife Kim and I live on a 16 acre farm in Solon Township in Kent County.
We are trying to get a beef operation going, but make some money with our egg business.
I love to restore old wooden motor boats. (DO YOU HAVE ONE THAT'S BEEN IN A BARN FOR YEARS?)
I love to fly radio control airplanes and the ones with strings that we all had as kids! Anyone have some of those lying around?
My best buck is a rather small eight point, but it is hanging in my office.
My best fish was a King Salmon I fought for 45 minutes on the lake. But it got away.
I grew up in Chicago and remain a dedicated Cubs and Bears fan.
There are local chapters in West Michigan called RAVE.
RAVE stands for Relief after violent encounter. These are wonderful, kind and caring people who provide free and confidential service to the survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
They also work with homeless people.
The RAVE-Ionia/Montcalm Chapter is going to host a pancake and bacon breakfast on Saturday, October 20th at 8am. The breakfast is being hosted by Applebees in Ionia at 3039 Commerce Lane.
Breakfast is only $5.00.
If you have a chance I hope you will attend and support these wonderful people and the good works they do!
One more note.. just in case, here is the RAVE hotline in case you need help......
