What do I miss most, besides the people, from Mi Wuk Village? The KETTLE CORN! Mike Laurance, chief Kettle Corn Cooker, lives just down Lama Hisum from where we lived and getting his Kettle Corn was fairly easy when we lived there.

SEND ME SOME. PLEASE.
Today………..I got the call that a Priority Mailing Box had been delivered to my mailbox and I should go rescue it right away. So……….
…..out the front door and up Hopwood for a block……….
Then, at the end of the street, I cut across the vacant lot to Shepherds Pie Drive.
Then, the bank of mail boxes.
Aha, inside our box is a key for the larger box below:
Inside…..could it be???
Return trip home, back to Hopwood….

After nearly 8 months:
Aha! Russ and I are enjoying our first mouthfuls of Mi Wuk Kettle Corn this year. Thank you Mike Laurance for the ‘corn’ and thank you Gregory Oliver for packaging and sending it to us here in Boise. You guys make a great team. It’s totally appreciated for sure. There’s not another that’s comparable in my humble estimation! Thank you again.
