A Yooper Funeral


We have sad news. Deb Baker's dad passed away. He was trying to lever a tractor wheel out of the back of his pickup when the tool slipped and he flew backwards, hitting his head. After surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain, he slipped away.
He went out while he was doing what he loved the most, which was puttering around at his camp (That's what we call our hunting places). Deb's dad was the ultimate Yooper - hunting, fishing, growing vegetables, and tending his apple orchard.

Deb says I have a lot of him in me.
Grandma Johnson's going to wear her best hat for the funeral on Saturday. We'll send him off the right way and I'll be back to posting later next week.
