Oscoda, Michigan... Did I hear you say huh?

Yep that's what I get when I say Oscoda, Michigan is my 2nd favorite place to live.  Being an Air Force Brat I lived in many states, but this one stood out as the most beautiful.  Now I was a kid I'm not sure how I'd like it as an adult.  I've threaten to vacation there one day, but hasn't happened yet.  I remember swimming in Lake Huron, running in the woods, climbing trees, picking wild raspberries, fishing in the AuSable River, catching frogs, playing with garter snakes, collecting multicolored leaves in the fall, ice skating, sledding, snowball fights, just to name a few of my favorite things.

The other day a miraculous thing happened.  I found out someone I've known for about 8 months lived and went to high school in Oscoda, Michigan.  I was dumbfounded.  I never thought I'd ever meet another single living human being that had been there.  I was reading her Facebook info and it said "High School Oscoda Michigan."  I knew it couldn't be a joke, because no one could be that random.

I sent her a FB note asking if she really went to Oscoda High School.  The good news is yes she has and now I have someone to reminisce about Oscoda with.  The bad news she wasn't even born when I was there.  Man, I'm getting old.  I was there from 1968-1972.  She was there from 1990-1992.  She was born in 1975.
