Exciting New Board Game – Where’s Hoffa?

Yes Parker Brothers and Martin Handford, of Where’s Waldo? fame, have introduced the latest board game to satisfy the insatiable appetites of Americans that love a challenge.

The game is based on a drawing by Martin Handford of a beach near one of the last places Jimmy Hoffa was seen.   It features the western shore of Lake St. Clair near Roseville, Michigan.

Players take turns looking for Jimmy until a ten second hourglass is empty.

Can you see Hoffa in this picture?

Maybe not because this is a mock-up of the real game.  You will have to buy the real one.

Good luck!

The Road To A Legacy

This post is about my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great-grandfather, Reuben Dye.  He settled in the Flint Township area of Michigan back in 1843 so he wasn’t that old but he was really great.

dye_roadThe reason he was so great is he was ahead of his time.  He was one of the first of about eight settlers in that Michigan area.  He had a farm and a road that eventually became Dye Road.  This was 50 years before gas buggies were invented.

Eventually Flint, the town to the east, became the automotive capital of the world.. So whether he was forward thinking or just plain lucky, I will never know. But what I do know is he is dead but his legacy lives on via that well-traveled road in Michigan.
