Childhood stories of growing up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula during the 1950's.
"You're from the U.P.?" a classmate queried during my very first week away at college. She looked me up and down then threw her ringer. "Do you have indoor plumbing there?"
I was astounded. Was this a serious question? Apparently so, for she was awaiting my reply.
"Well, of course!" I spluttered. "We also have telephones, T.V. and technology!" But I had to wonder: did I look or act as if I just walked out of the backwoods?
