My oldest son, officially went to work for me when he was 12 years old. Fast forward to 1999, like me, he has a keen sense in numbers and quickly can analyze the information that the figures generate. Nothing makes him happier than taking a head count and doing a projection of sales for the day. As he approaches the work at hand and prepares for the day, in his mind, there is no doubt that the day will unfold exactly as he plans it.

We started a concession stand business in 1999 that we called

John Henrys.

Matthew had landed us a contract with the National Forest at one of their campgrounds in southern Indiana, on Lake Monroe. On a big lake with a nice beach. We were in complete charge of the beach with concessions and security from Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day. It was heaven 4 months months out of the year

Someone had to be there 24 hours a day to keep the villians and the racoons at a distance. So, we bought a mid size school bus and quickly converted it to a bunk house complete with  2 sets of bunks, TV and an air conditioner. (My other 2 sons joined us on the weekends) We cooked daily on a grill in the shelter area.

From 8pm until 10am, the whole beach belonged to us We usually went swimming until sunset, then watched the sunset from the beach. In the distance across the lake was a resort that had a piano bar from 7pm to 9pm nightly and then a local band would play until midnight.

On moonlit nights, after the boys went to bed, I would dance across the beach to the music as the small waves  lapped across my feet. The mornings were glorious with the sunrise, breakfast and coffee lakeside.

We did this for 2 years and then went into the glazed nut business with a touch of German in our homemade coating for the glaze.

Matthew is now a Chef at the La Becasse, a French restaurant in Maple City, Michigan and a part time entrepreneur on the weekends. CodeBlue appreciates his help in testing our line up of beacons.


Advertise where the eyes are!
