Hi, I'm Pam Roberts the work-a-holic (yes, I finally admit it). I consider myself lucky because in this economy I have not one but two jobs - and I love them both! When I'm not at 107MUS, I work at Mercy Hospital in Surgery as a Circulating RN. There's not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for the opportunity I was given to go back to college. I'm living proof that you're NEVER too old to make a fresh start. Just get off your butt, stop playing the blame game, quit comlaining and DO IT! Life's passing you by my friend... After getting divorced I moved into a horse farm in North Muskegon (Dalton Twp.) which is where Rick and I live now. A half-century ago I was born, raised, and graduated in Fremont, MI where my folks (Al & Helen Zuwerink) still live. I took off for CMU for a year in 1979, wasn't crazy about college, so I traveled Europe for a month then fell into radio accidently! I finally went back to college a few years ago, and now I can't imagine not finishing my BSN and finally my Masters which I'll start on this coming Fall. Hobby-wise, we like to ride horses, Harley's, we're getting back into boating, and our "kids" are chihuahuas named Peanut and Brittle. That's my life in a nutshell. I don't know how long you've been with us here at the Moose, but I can tell you that after 22 years together, Mark and I still have a great time with you guys every morning - including Saturdays! We appreciate that you make us part of your day whether you listen on your radio, online, or on your smartphone via IHeart radio. Hope you enjoy our many online and on air contests (open to ALL Country Club Members) and drop me a line when you get a chance email@example.com or you can friend me on Facebook, and take the time to friend us at 107MUS the Moose at the same time! Hey, did I also mention that Mark and I get together with Andy O'Riley every weekday morning from 11-Noon for "The Lake Effect" a one hour local talkshow on AM 1090? Well we do, so check us out there, too!
We all have kids right? Some have 2 legs, ours just so happen to have 4!
Two of our babies, Dollar and Blue, found a new home in 2011 (yes, they went to the same family)...We were blessed beyond belief to have them and are thrilled that the their new family loves them as much as we always will.
Here they are in some of my favorite shots:
This is "Dollar" shown here by my friends
Matt Kempf and his wife, Lisa:
Isn't she beautiful? By far the greatest horse I've ever had. And here are a couple
more of my favorites of Dollar-baby in the pasture, and with my sister, Connie and "Blue:"
...With my sister, Connie...
Now for "Camelot" our Gypsy Vanner stud, who has been growing like mad! This is a 2-yo pic, he just turned 3 on June 9th, 2011 (and he is for sale):
"Blue" was Camo's best friend...With Blue and Dollar gone, we'll see how long we get to enjoy Camo...
Of course, the horses weren't the only 4-legged critters at the farm...Where would we have been without the barn cats who both passed away and are burried at the farm by their favorite creek they moused at...
This was "Mrs. Biggs":
...and is was Ebby (short for Ebony):
People always ask "Where do you live?"
Well...Right Here! (That's my mom on the right)
This is the 100-year-old Barn which we renovated:
This is a couple pasture shots (we have 4 pastures and 2 12'x24' run-in shelters):
And this is looking out the back of the house across the pasture towards the West where Rick's burning brush, and where we get to watch the sunset every evening from the hot tub!:
...And that's a pretty good overview of my world. We've been blessed to say the least and work hard to keep it up and hopefully sell it this coming spring so we can move on to something smaller - maybe something on water, who knows?!!!
Back to the babies...
This is Peanut:
And, here's "Brittle" Peanut's girlfriend:
So that completes our happy family...For a while at least!
Are you tired of blurry pictures yet??? No?
Ok, there's always more...
Fun with Mom & Dad on our "Father's Day" fishing charter (mom's pointing to the one she caught all by herself!) with Love It Charter Captains Bruce and Brian Cleveland:
...Summer kayaking (that's the nose of my kayak!):
Me, snowshoeing at PJ Hoffmaster State Park on Lake Michigan:
And of course those special times I get to spend with my sweetie...
More pics to come from our upcoming Florida Keys trip in 2012!!!
