Vol XV #282 - Meggen's Monday
Vol XV #284 - A Picture Postcard Afternoon

Ft1-5-16

This afternoon we will be in the Big City By the Bay, so the Leland Report is being posted early.  Back in 2001 when I started the LR, it was usually was posted in the am as it was a good morning email to my family.  Hard to believe that 15 years will have passed since March 30 2001.  I have been interviewed by Interlochen Radio, the Record-Eagle, 9&10 News (Jack O’Malley), Detroit Free Press.  I’m sure most of them believed I would never still be doing this in 2002 let alone 2016.  I think back to those days when I walked up Sugar Loaf, climbed down to from the Clay Cliffs and all the other unique Leelanau destinations, unfortunately I can’t physically revisit most of them today, but the memories are great.

Every morning when I open TLR, my heart smiles and breaks a little. I am very happy living where I do, but I miss Michigan and my lake, and your pictures let me be there if even for a fleeting moment. Thank you!!

Keith, your efforts have always been appreciated, and they always will be. I like to think I’m the biggest fan of the Leland/Biscuit Reports, but I’m in a very long line that has formed over these 15 years. You keep posting, we’ll keep loving/learning/smiling/laughing/admiring/dreaming/etc.
