Find Beavers – Find Brookies
3 October 2009, 12:32 pm

One thing that the beavers do an excellent job of, is make some wonderful trout habitat.  The water behind the dams are usually teaming with fish, as they swim downstream and are...

What does this look like to you?  Could it be the path back to the barn after grazing all day.  It could be, but it’s not!  This is a genuine southern Michigan deer run.  I f...

Nice trail you have there. Have you seen any rubs/scrapes yet? I have been out quite a bit latley and have seen some does, but all cameras show is movement of the bucks at night. Pre-rut now, but give it a week or so and they should start moving. By the way....Nice Blog.

Priorities and Perspectives
4 November 2009, 12:11 am

As of yet I have not taken my bow in the woods.  I have not spent one minute in a tree stand.  This has been a very unusual year to say the least.  I officially started deer hunting when I was 14 years old.  This  marks my 49th. year for trying to put some venison in the freezer, or put a nice ...

Hunting with Mike: Joe Giarmo A True Friend (RIP)
« Reply #44 on: November 13, 2009, 08:20:35 AM »

Joe Giarmo A True Friend (RIP)
10 November 2009, 2:49 pm

PhotobucketI have not been able to bring myself to do any writing due to the fact that my good friend, and father figure died this past Saturday morning.  Joe Giarmo was 93 years young, but those of us who knew and loved him just could not imagine life without him around.  He was at Fountain-View rehabilitation home after having a small heart attack a couple weeks ago.  He was progressing nicely, except he didn’t want to be there at all.  He even took a short visit to his house the day before he passed away, to see if he could be released to go home the next week.  He went peacefully as his body and heart just were wore out.

Joe was a local legend, as he coached boxers for more than 60 years.  Hundreds and hundreds of boys owe Joe a debt of gratitude for teaching them, not just about boxing, but about life.  Many a young boy Joe took off the street and turned their lives around for the good.  From our former mayor, to CEO”s, to police captains/lieutenants, coaches, union officials, and just plane old working people Joe showed them how to treat people and how to  believe in yourself.  Respect others and respect yourself is what Joe taught.

Joe put Monroe on the map in the 50’s and 60’s with his championship boxing teams.  He had Golden gloves champs, state champs, AAU champs, national champs, Olympic hopefuls, and world champions.  Joe’s trademark “left hook” was the bread and butter punch for many of Joe’s boys.  Many will give honor and tribute to him over these next several days.

The last e-mail Joe ever wrote was to me, his Pal.  He signed it “I love you, Joe.”  He was a man of passion and compassion, and me and my family are so blessed to have known him.  Joe was a faithful Catholic, as is his huge Italian family.  It is kind of ironic though that God surrounded him with many Baptist/Evangelist/Spirit Filled  friends (myself included.)  If you are numbered among us (Protestants) you will know what the sinners prayer is.  Back on Oct. 19th. 2005 my wife and I knelt with Joe in his living room, as he repented of his sins and asked Christ into his heart.  Joe wept with us as he was assured of his home in Heaven.  I am comforted that one day soon I will see Joe again and we will have an eternity to explore the vast reaches of the heavens.

Who would of thought that one simple kid, from the east side of the tracks, could of left such an impact on his community.  You left a legacy of love  Papa Joe, and your memory will be cherished forever.  Till we meet again.  I remain your son, brother, pal, and admirer.

Because He lives

Mike
