“MLive Guy” Turns 50 – Self Inflicted “Payback”

February 27th, 2014 by

weather channel 2“Happy 50th Birthday to me!”  (Sarcasm)

After 7 years of surpring local folks with slightly embarrassing photos that friends and co-workers have sent to MLive on their birthdays; it’s only fair that I do it to myself, as I turn “the big 5-0.”

This is the closest I have to a “weather channel photo,” from Hurricaine Gustav’s effects on Drew County, a few years ago.

This seems like a good time to say thanks for your support, your loyalty, and for agreeing that “what I think is newsworthy, is what you think is newsworthy.”
