Cindy – That is amazing. Do you have more pictures?
Mark – I think he and Nolan took them down to Detroit and sold them. This matches a story that Nolan told
Mark – That would be a lot of fish to can, though I’m sure Gramma probably snatched a few.
Mark – I have never seen this photo before. I found it in the bottom of a box of miscellaneous stuff that was fairly recent.
Cindy – I remember her canning suckers after we speared a bunch of them.
Cindy – Would you retell some of Nolan’s stories about the family in your “Notes” section of facebook? I would like to hear some of them, and maybe some of the grandchildren would like to hear them, too.
Cindy – Thank you for sharing this photo.
Mark – Nolan’s stories are mostly about him, but every now and again you catch a nugget like this one about our Grandparents, uncles and Aunts. It is possible that he may have given me this picture when Megan and I went to visit him during muzzle loading season three years ago. She might remember…by the way, talking to Nolan is much like talking to Clint Eastwood’s character in “Gran Torino”. Makes for vibrant and sometimes hilarious conversation, with a lot of “I can’t believe he said that” later.
Mandy – very cool!
David – I think the photo was in the 70’s… look how old grandpa looks in the picture. the salmon plants started in the early 70′ s.
Mark- Thank You Aunt Mary for the nugget of family history behind this photo.

David – in the story I heard there was about twice as many fish. That’s Nolan for you.
Mark – From what Julie says she heard from Gramma, There were several occasions, so all of the above could be valid.
