Hello Metro family and friends! I hope your spring is going well. With the pandemic still ongoing, hopefully you are like me and seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Margaret and I got vaccinated, and are feeling better about getting out of the Metro HQ and going out and enjoying a retiree's life.

In February, Margaret and I took a nice day trip to Mackinac City to see the blue ice that had formed on Lake Huron. As we walked out on the frozen lake, we saw some pretty amazing ice formations. It was a nice trip, but we were disappointed that our Ponderosa Steak House in West Branch, Michigan had closed up. I don't think there are any more in the state, and I will miss the wings and Texas Toast.

In March, I hopped in my automobile and took a solo car trip down to Florida to meet my brothers at Steve's place. It was a great week, and we had a lot of fun enjoying the weather, gambling, watching preseason baseball, America roadside attractions, laughing it up with my bros, and of course, the grouper sandwiches.

I am looking forward to the 10th annual McCarty Metro film contest which will take place from May 20-31. That means you will have a full week, and 2 weekends to film. I hope you all consider making a film this year. If you want to get a little bit of a 'heads up' on the competition, here is a link back to the film project page information before the the specific rules come out on May 20.

After a year off because of COVID, Gull Lake XXXVII is back on the schedule for May 26-28. Kelly and Steve are in the field of 12 players. Ben Toner is first alternate. Hoping for good weather and good times with some old friends that I have known for 40 years.

With summer on the doorstep, it also means travel time. Remember, if you have any vacation plans, remember to submit some of your good times you had with a quick article and pictures for the Metro. Margaret and I are preparing for a trip out to Oregon to see Chris, Amanda, Alexa, and Cooper. We couldn't go last year because of COVID, and video chats just can't replace a hug. Of course there will be full reports and pictures right here in an upcoming edition of the McCarty Metro.

My Final Thought I wish to leave you is a video of professional wrestler Marc Mero (AKA Johnny B. Badd) who is talking about his mom in a Mother's Day speech in front of students. This Mother's Day and Father's Day, make sure to thank your parents for all the love they gave and all the sacrifices they made to help shape you into the person you are today. If they are no longer with us, remember them fondly for the special people they were.

If you still receive both of these calls, you are the luckiest person in the world!

Happy Mother's Day, and Happy Father's Day!
