If you are going to turn 50 (we all have to, no turning back) how to do it?  If you are like Mike you head to the Northwoods and have a perfect day.  You start it out with a homemade card from your wife, a lick from the dog and a trip to Paul Bunyans to be serenaded by the Paul Bunyan wait staff.  Follow that up with a beautiful day fishing for bluegills (and anything that bites)   Dinner of steak and onions made by Ruth.   Few more licks from Carmella the dog.  4 layer cake sitting on a screened in porch.  Followed by Sweet Homemade Grape wine and Ruth’s pecan fudge.  That is how you turn 50.

Happy 50th Mike
