ANOTHER ROAD TRIP

It was a trip Linda and I had talked about for a long time and we finally set a date and went.  Traverse City was the destination - and we had a great time.  We headed out on Tuesday morning at 8:30am and arrived in Traverse City 7 1/2 hours later - we stopped at a few (read lots) of places on the way like the first picture - a thrift store.  I saw some bamboo ski poles that I picked up on the way home - we use them for walking sticks for the river when we fish - they float when not in use and are light enough that they are easy to use.  It was a great 3 days and a great place to spend some time.  their downtown was full of all sorts of quaint little stores with a lot of unique items - a lot of it was very pricey for my taste but nice to look at.
The last picture is of one of Linda's purchases for John - it is a talking skull - it sings "I ain't got no body" - get it?    We played it for all the cars we passed and who passed us.  We did not play it for the customs agent who gave us no trouble at all when we explained we had been over in the States for 54 hours.  The colors were not as vibrant as ours are this week but they are further south so their time is coming.
We hit the Turtle Creek casino - I walked in with my $40 ready to play and I walked out with $40 from a great machine.  Linda played $42 and lost it all.  I think we were in there for all of 1/2 hour.  Big gamblers we are.
It is a trip I would do again in a heartbeat.  We had fun.
