Thoughts and wishes from the ‘man-cave’ of Mr. BoyleHappy Birthday America! Also, I need to wish a very happy birthday to two of the most important people in my life. Today, my daughter Alexa is 23 and Cassie “The Dog” Boyle is 15. Life would be pretty boring without these two, especially Cassie.

The following is another “Have Fun or Get Out of the Way” column by award-winning writers Don Leighton and Mike Granlund and their alter egos, Lance Boyle and Billy Pirkola, which runs occasionally in the Superior Telegram.
Happy Birthday America! Also, I need to wish a very happy birthday to two of the most important people in my life. Today, my daughter Alexa is 23 and Cassie “The Dog” Boyle is 15. Life would be pretty boring without these two, especially Cassie.
Attend the Fourth of July parade this weekend. Once again, Lance and Billy and their weather predicting abilities have a 100 percent accuracy rate. The weather for the parade will be ideal — warm and partly cloudy. Make sure you wave to the grand marshall, Alex Wizbicki. He will appreciate it.
• Lance’s new best friend in the whole world is Autumn Krueger. She is a junior at UWS and is majoring in forensic chemistry. She hails from White Lake, Wis., population 375, and works at the customer service counter at Menard’s. She epitomizes what customer service is; she has a sense of humor, is knowledgeable, is helpful and enjoys her job. Working with the public takes special skills. She has them all, and the prediction is for great things for this young lady. She has two sisters, Spring and April, and her grandmother is June. I wonder if there is a May or August or Summer in her family.
• Mrs. Lance and her father are recovering nicely from surgeries during the past couple of weeks. There will be more about Mrs. Lance and her hospital and swing bed roommate, Rosemary Rose. Lance “Florence Nightingale” calls her Rose Rose.
• Lance omitted a very important team from SHS in an article about this year’s state entrant, the boy’s golf team. The 1993 team advanced to state with members Dan Walker, Joel Gotelaere, Ryan Sauter, Andy Dickenson and Brad Paine. Thanks to Coach Larry Cole for pointing this out. Congratulations guys!
• Loyal reader, Mark Duffy, spotted the intentional error in Wednesday’s article. Fraser Shipyards is not spelled Frazier. Great job Mark! You win nothing but your name will be in the drawing for the “Trip That Doesn’t Exist.”
• That’s it from Lance’s man-cave keyboard. Thanks for letting me tend to some unfinished business. Enjoy a safe and happy Fourth of July and remember what it stands for. Without freedom, what are we?
