You Might Live In Michigan, If . . . 
If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 18 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping the food will swim by.
If you're proud your region makes the national news 96 nights each year because Pelston is the coldest spot in the nation.
If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March.
If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the year.
If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there.
If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead.
If you have worn shorts and a coat at the same time.
If your town has an equal number of bars and churches.
If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number.

You know you're a true MICHIGANIAN when.............
"Vacation" means going up north on I-75.

  1. The Rev. Billy Graham tells of a time early in his career when he arrived in a small town to preach a sermon. Wanting to mail a letter, he asked a young boy where the post office was.

    When the boy told him, Rev. Graham thanked him and said, “If you’ll come to the Baptist church this evening, you can hear me telling everyone how to get to Heaven.”

    “I don’t think I’ll be there,” the boy said. “You don’t even know your way to the post office.”
