Overheard and Shout Outs: April 5, 2019


Are there tidbits of conversations you’ve heard while standing in line at the grocery store, serving a table or walking down the sidewalk that make you smile, cringe or laugh out loud?

“When you took my salad out of your fridge, did that smell go away?”

About the Pig:
“Your aisles are so wide I thought I’d lost weight.”

“Gotta charge the Shark.”

“Shapewear – for my love handles.”


Is there someone or something that deserves a pat on the back or a slap on the wrist?

Hearty thanks to the folks who greet me by name when I check in at the Northern Door Y and remain patient while I wrestle with my gym bag to get my tag out. You’re the best!

To Jorrie, Vaughn and Don at the Last Stop service station in Ellison Bay: Thanks for helping me out this last winter. I had car trouble, wanted to cry and Don said, “There’s no crying in baseball.”

A slap on the wrist to the driver who was tailgating me from Baileys Harbor to Sister Bay, even though I was driving 60 in a 55 zone. Either pass me or slow down.
