November in Michigan?

Most days I explore Grand Rapids from behind the wind shield of my car as I head down the express way to work. My favorite view is of the fisherman in their waders during the wee hours of the morning. Taking advantage of a few days off and this freak weather, I found the the spot where the action is.. Some day I hope to know the feeling of standing in the frigged forceful current while protected by rubber pants. Maybe I will even try fishing but supervision and a life jacket will be a must. A bonus to the day was the dancing blue barrel held in place by gravity and mysterious forces. At first I was concerned by the close proximity to a few of the fisherman. What if some rogue current releases its hold and the barrel were to fly into the air becoming a deadly projectile. Yes I do worry to much because after my 2 hour stroll the barrel was still being harassed by the waterfall.
City bookstores are the best. Housed in buildings of architectural significance while people walk by the windows with clear destinations in mind that require dress clothes. Sophistication and scholarly intellect fill the air. Even the soup sold at the small cafe is mature, with names like curry lentil and Tuscan tomato. I've had both which made me wonder at what point had I grown up enough to eat soup with vegetables in it I couldn't identify. All the while pondering how healthy it must be and wishing I knew the fiber content... Wow I feel dorky and boring...Oh well.

What 14 year olds dress up as.

Totally 80's...

Trashia and I went to an 80's party last night. For those of you who know how big my hair was in the 80's ( as I recall you reminded me of it on my last visit) I know it doesn't even come close. Today's hair spray just can't do the job : ) If you get a chance to dance all night to 80's hits I highly recommend it.

Rocks, rocks, and more rocks.

The hats are on : )

Lets put it to a vote..... who do you think is having the most fun?

The gnome of Gary Ernest Smith's Golden field

Grandpa's gnome was feeling photogenic last night. Also Merland and Gwenavier showed up at the Celtic restaurant where we ate dinner last night. It was a day filled with magical appearances. Today we are going to explore the art of Prescott and probably some old treasures too. Aunt Sandy is always up for a treasure hunt. I'll report what we find.
