Hey Guys....

Gee, i'll bet y'all prolly figured that i dropped clean off the face of the earth.....

But actually, no such luck!!! haha!!!

Short answer, it's just been a really crazy year now.... had lots and lots of big changes here, and hadta just prioritize a bit.

But all is well now...the Airstream is tucked safely away in a building in Temperance, Mich, as is the 77 Continental tow car... Hasn't moved since i put 'er away in November of last year, but i'm sure all will be well when it's time to unearth her.

Sorry i missed ya at the Metro Detroit Annual Rally... and it would figure i logged in just a few days too late for the Mackinaw City event.

Anyways, i promise to keep in closer contact from here on in!!! haha!!!

Hey to everyone.... Lou, Buck, Ralph, everybody!!!

We'll see y'all soon.... Happy Halloween...

Scott.....

When it is my time, I want to go peacefully,
And in my sleep.....Just like my Grandfather....
Not screaming, kicking and in a state of panic,
like the other passengers in his car were......

Saturday morning and Steph and Dave were out in their kayaks bright and early, then walking Dixie with Brad and Koa, playing with Sam, some stayed at the campgrounds and some went off to the island. Rain threatened, then tried to start now and then, but kept giving up, and all in all it was not a bad day be out at all.

"Auntie" Laura is a real animal lover and I suspect she would have a farm full of pets if she had the room.

Isnt that the Truth! I love dogs! Poor Orie in that picture looks so sad!

The Grand Hotel is pictured first. The island was really bustling. The Sea Biscuit is owned by a friend of Jess' and Grady's. Nice looking establishment.

It was so picturesque I was having a ball walking around shooting pictures. One could easily find plenty to do for a week at the least. The ship lines have a pass that would make it attractive for commuting.

Don't you love this ornament? Each individual ornament was as detailed and cool as the next, all hung from a pink feather boa tree.

There were so many buggies and carts and wagons, from the posh Grand Hotel ones to the utility variety. Word of caution: Watch where you step! And that wasn't rain water at the curb afterall!

I tried walking over to the Grand Hotel before and after lunch but I was not making good enough time by foot, or was it because I was stopping so often? I recommend hiring a buggy or renting or bringing your bike to cover more of the island than the main street and there is soo much more to the island then the small part pictured here. There are natural areas, the fort, the butterfly house, just to name a few.

The second picture is the post office. I saw two different sets of brides and grooms. But the really funny sight was seeing a half dozen bridesmaids hiking up their long gowns and walking through the well manured streets...sorry no pic of that either.

We met for lunch at the Chippewa Hotel in the Pink Pony. I had the gargonzola side salad and the french onion soup and it was delicious and more than ample. Everyone's entrees looked yummier than the last! Had I not run out of room and time I would have gotten some Mackinaw fudge or ice cream to nosh on, or perhaps the caramel corn.

From the deadpan on the driver and the entreating look and angle of the little girl on the front seat, I wondered if the driver wasn't silent like the palace guards.

I loved the quaint yellow corner hotel with porch, fence, lattice and beautiful flowers. Then the second wedding couple. Do they look pensive?

Thanks Jess. He's my wonderman! Seems the doctors and staff are amazed. Tried to impact us with the seriousness of forestalling treatment as we reponded we only thought it was pneumonia, which they said should not be minimized on its own right. Seems we have minimal medical history but the prognosis is definitely in and we have been unequivocally declared "old" for a fact and must make amends and be duly concerned. I take it that means availing ourselves of many services to come. Oh Nelly, it's been unleashed now. Anyway he sounds good, looks great and looking forward to coming home. He's bored out of his mind. Now me I like hospitals and being served... He got strawberry shortcake in bed tonight while I'm eating nuked smok-y-links alone. We gets what we gets. Morale of the story, be prudent and live to the full, and DON"T get OLD kids.

Last posts for the rally...bet you thought I'd never give up the filabuster. I will post a link to the rest of our trip when I get that done. Yeah, knew you could hardly wait with that suspense.

Now a few miscellaneous shots before heading out.
