Service by Bear


I remember seeing this funny little bear when I was a kid. The family went ‘up north’ as we still call it today, frequently for snowmobiling weekends with other families and friends. Great memories from the late sixties and onward. I searched Google for the original company, it seems to have gone away but there are plenty of other places with the same name. Nothing lasts forever does it…


I must admit that content for the new pages is hard to come by. Why? It’s self inflicted. Many of my regular visitors are aware that I am going through a major life change right now. Because of that, I am not actively taking new photos or video at the moment, that will resume when I manage to get some personal issues out the way and get myself back up north where I belong. Born and raised in the north, a Yank I’ll always be.

I haven’t got much to say either, just taking it one hour at a time. I hope you’ll stick around friends!

  1. Take care and enjoyed seeing your post. Before too long you’ll see things here and there that will create a spark of inspiration. Best wishes ~

    1. It is Latin, it means “if you seek a pleasant peninsula, look around you”. Lower Michigan is of course a peninsula, the upper portion of the state connects to Minnesota, the bottom of the lower peninsula to Ohio and Illinois. The lakes separate Michigan from your beautiful country. ❤️

  2. Like Sue said … ‘we’re not going anywhere’. Take your time … I find it hard to write too, those times when my mind is full of something else, that I don’t want to share on a public blog.

  3. There was one of these in my neighborhood when I was growing up. It has been gone for quite some time but I still remember the sign because I would always look for it whenever I went out on family trips. Thank you for the unexpected nostalgic post!
