Out and About – Week of November 26th

I can’t remember a Thanksgiving with such nice weather, as the one we just experienced. It was perfect weather for those who traveled, which in years past, hasn’t been quite as nice.

Out and About – Week of October 22nd

Christmas is only about two months away. It isn’t too hard to find Christmas items in many of the stores already. Thanksgiving is next month, and Halloween is next week. Why can’t we just take one day of celebration, or one holiday, at a time? Things have become so commercialized lately. I wouldn’t be surprised if fireworks don’t go on …

Out and About – Week of October 15th

This fall has been picture-perfect when it comes to fall colors. We had the privilege of traveling up to St. Ignace a couple of weeks ago, and the colors were fantastic, not only up north, but also around this part of Michigan also. I can only imagine what the colors are like out east. This year’s color tour was timed …
