Out and About – Week of June 2nd

We are now in June, which means that the chances of snow are slim, even though this is Michigan, and we all know what the weather can do in the “Water Wonderland”.

The “Snowbirds” have returned to “Pure Michigan”. A week or so ago, we decided to visit one of our favorite hometown restaurants. Located a stone’s throw away from the Wood Street Dam, it’s been a gathering place for many of the locals for over fifty years.

Out and About – Week of April 21st

Before I fill you in on what’s going on Out and About, I thought I’d better clear something up. I’m now using a cane to get around. Hopefully, it’s only temporary. I’ll be seeing a surgeon next week to see if he can cure what’s bothering my left knee. For once, I have difficulty keeping up with my wife. This …
