More North Woods wildlife

They say healthy whoopee lasts well into the seventies and even eighties, and isn't this septuagenarian a walking billboard for that happy fact, even for a denizen of the Upper Michigan wilderness, where men are men and women are women and sparks fly when the twain meet?

The photo was taken yesterday at the Lake Superior Day celebration in Ontonagon, Michigan, better known in my whodunits as Porcupine City. The woman had just debarked the schooner Madeline, where I perched on the ship's stern with my camera.

You can bet money that I will work the sentiment on this T-shirt into a mystery novel -- if somebody hasn't copyrighted the phrase.

Meanwhile: You go, girl!
