|Can you believe it's spring?|
Sissy was moving and had asked my help with cleaning her former apartment so that she could turn in the keys. We also had a nice visit and I got to meet the man in her life, finally!
|Mr. Wonderful with my Sissy. Doesn't she look happy?|
He's very nice, and awfully good to her!
The weekend following my little jaunt to Green Bay, I headed out once again. My brother, who lives in Traverse City, MI, had offered me an extra ticket he had to see his daughter, my niece, in her high school's production of "Phantom of the Opera". Mr. Trucker was SUPPOSED to be coming home for the weekend, but early Thursday, I found out that he wouldn't be making it (no surprises there!), so on Friday morning, I headed out for Traverse City. It was a beautiful day for the drive and I've gotten so comfortable driving across the Mackinac Bridge, that I actually took a picture with my cellphone AS I was crossing it:
|World Headquarters of Roth Shirt Co.|
|I think we can all relate.|
|Saw these in a shop window. They give new meaning|
to the name "Ugg"!
|The rare and elusive one-stringed guitar!|
|This is the cat that Sassy always said looked ticked off|
because she ran into a wall so many times she smashed her face.
Sunday was the performance, which was excellent! I love Phantom and never tire of seeing it.
|My brother, Odd Bod, and his two youngest offspring. I can't believe|
how they've grown!
|My niece-in-law & nephew. Isn't she teeny and|
After leaving Michigan to return to Wisconsin, we kind of lost track of the happenings in Petoskey. So imagine my surprise as I drove through there last week, to see nothing other than this:
|Could it be? It's been nearly three full years, but up there|
behind that green fencing...
I called Mr. Trucker and said "Guess what's still there?" and he immediately answered: "The Petoskey Hole"!
Apparently it's still hung up in the courts so no action has been taken. It's such a shame, because it's the most prominent corner in town, right across from the waterfront.

While I was enjoying myself in Traverse City, Sissy was snowmobiling with Mr. Wonderful in Munising, Michigan, which is about as far north as you can go before falling off the edge of the earth.
|That's my Sissy in there somewhere...|
According to Sissy, half the animals live in the house with the family, including this cute little guy:

|Doesn't she look natural holding him? I think it's time she|
gave me grandchildren, although I hope they'll look more like her.
