It will be a long trip!
I've really liked Ann Arbor the few times I've been there. I love living in the Grand Rapids area (so far at least). Hope you have fun.

We're back. It was good to hear stories about Neville, my father-in-law.

Welcome back, Taxlady!

Sometimes funerals and wakes, while sad, can be a great place to reconnect and share stories.

Hey. I miss this place also. New job is going well. A bit of a commute. I have a great route through the backwoods which is nice this time of year. You can't get rid of me that easy. I'll be back....

Good to "see" you Rock. I sure hope we don't get rid of you. Glad to read that the new job is going well.

We are getting ready to head to Va Beach to visit another of Mrs Hoot's sisters.
This particular sister, I have known for nigh on to 30 years. Met her and her husband at Rendezvous. Met Mrs Hoot on the occasion of their 25th wedding anniversary. Bonita invited me and the boys to play some music for their celebration. Her birthday is today..July 4. They won't be going to the family reunion as they own a small diner and will need to be open on the weekend. See y'all when we get back!
