Just stuff

I just noticed that it's been over 6 weeks since I posted a Blog.  It's not that I've been to busy, it's just that we haven't done that much since we got back to Michigan.

We ended June at the kids house, I had to drive the grandson back and forth to Driver Training class for a week, then we had two days back at the park before we were back at the kids to House/Pet sit for 8 days while they went north to a family reunion week over the fourth of July.  It was during that heat wave so we had free air conditioning for the whole time.  

This is the little girl that we were taking care of while House sitting

An aerial  view of our park, we're the little red squiggly line near the lower center.

Lighthouse Village Resort, Homer Michigan, 780 membership sites and 10 Coast to Coast sites. 

About 10 days to ourselves at the park doing this and that, cleaning stuff,cutting the grass, working on the garden, fixing things breaking things and watching Tiger Baseball, we're in first place.  Then it was back to the kids house to again House/Pet sit for 9 days while they were of in the Boston area for a little road trip.  They hit Niagara Falls, West Pointe Academy, Salem, Mystic and Boston Massachusetts. They went to a Red Sox game, hugged the Green Monster, did a Segway tour of Boston, went whale watching and a ton more things that I can't think of.

We spotted this one in a Walmart's in Battle Creek, Michigan I was really hoping that it had a For Sale sign on it since it looks like it still has a lot of life left in it.

I tried to explain to them that Cathy and I are the retired ones with a motor home and that we're the ones that should be doing all the running around and that they should stay home and go to work everyday.  But since it was the two hottest parts of the summer so far the free A/C made up for it.

Down by the dock

Hopefully next week we'll get over to the Lake Michigan side to tour a garden we've been wanting to see for a couple of years , if we do you'll probably hear about it.

Gee, I was beginning to think you were dead. My one regret of our time in Michigan was not getting to meet you. And we probably just missed you at Coney Island's. We really enjoyed our time in Michigan - it is a really nice state...and the weather was wonderful, at least up north. We are still eating cherries from Traverse City and I'm hanging on to my cherry wine for as long as possible.

That photo of the old motorhome sure was weird.
