Nami decides to spend hers taking a bath, using a new Shower Tempo as a shower with Chopper and unknown to her, Sanji and Brook looking on. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew has decided to go fishing. Luffy knocks out one fish but it just attracts a bigger one, and that fish attracts an even bigger eel.
I love it here, bright sun or dreary clouds. When I was a kid, rainy days on Bois Blanc were known as Monopoly Days, because we would hunker down in our rental cottage, near a blazing fireplace and in the light of a nearby kerosene lantern, and play that particular game.
Now, I tend to read by the light of an electric lamp, or watch videos. For the intervening years have brought electricity to Bois Blanc, not to mention running water replacing pumps and indoor toilets replacing outhouses.
And yet the place is much the same as it was a half century ago: One is named Chuck Maki. The library is small: The other half Shutter island reaction as a museum, with mementos from Island years gone by: I was in there at the request of a woman overseeing the place.
It is open for four hours a day, three days a week through July and August. The woman came up empty on workers, and so I received the call, and agreed to work.
He reminisced for a while, and we compared notes of people he might have known versus those I have known. The Pines, as the municipality is known, was where I stayed in the few summers I visited here as a child.
Maki had not, for instance, known Earl and Miriam Hoover, the king and queen of the Island -- owners of many acres in and near the Pines. Hoover, former head of the Hoover Vacuum Co.
I was, in fact, perusing a biography of Mr. Hoover when Maki entered the library, which was why I asked if he had known the old gent.
I did; we rented a place from Mr. Hoover for two summers when I was quite young. It was situated right next to the main Hoover cottage, a large structure that is the centerpiece of an Island estate that now includes four residential dwellings and a tennis court on beautifully landscaped acreage.
I remember him well: He seemed to enjoy life. My brother Bob and his wife Gussie and I are always looking for possible rental buildings for future summer visits, and that particular one will soon be coming on the rental market.
And so we imposed on a woman who manages the property, and she guided us through it. I don't recall ever being in the front portion of the structure before.
I imagine I might have been invited in the back door -- to the kitchen -- when I was a boy, to beg cookies freshly baked by Ethel, who with husband Maxie worked for the Hoovers for years. They might have been the lone black couple on the Island back then.
I encountered Ethel once again years later, inwhen my wife Susan and I visited Bois Blanc as part of a round-the-country trip we were taking. We stayed a couple of nights in the Pines Hotel -- which was an arson victim four years later -- and visited places and people I remembered from childhood.
One stop was at the Hoovers' place. Susan and I were greeted at the front door by Ethel.The Red Bull Illume Image Quest showcases the globe's very best action and adventure sports images and honors the photographers behind them.
