    How are you doing picking up work in the TC area? I currently live in Buffalo, NY moving back to Kingsley this summer. I plow in the winter and cut grass in the summer.

    thanks

    Yep. My family has been here a long time. Grew up on the Old Mission Peninsula.

    So that building that your last name was relation to you.

    My parents did the lighthouse keeping thing on Old Mission Pen back in Oct. We ran up for the day to see them. Didn't have time to give you a call, sorry.

    That building is part of an old cherry processing plant built by Buff Kroupa who recently passed on this past fall. Not sure of the relation but distant. Originally, there were many Kroupa's in the area. My family arrived here about 1851.

    That's great your parents were able to stay at the lighthouse. Fall would be a good time since there would be fewer a-holes from downstate roaming about the property. J/K.:D

    I grew up in Manton in the 70's/80's. Traverse City was the nearest place that had a Meijers
    and a mall to shop at. I remeber seeing Star Wars in Traverse City and President Ford in the
    Cherry parade..
