Random Pictures and Stuff

The Survival Flight helicopter at work. It was sitting on a landing pad right by the bus stop! I sure am glad it wasn't getting ready to take off!

My dad and his girlfriend, Peggy in Connecticut for my nephews wedding. My nephews wife's parents live about a mile from the Atlantic ocean!

As you come around a curve in I-75 this is the first glimpse of the Mackinaw Bridge while you are still several miles away from it.

This is I-275, which is a freeway that was notorious for terrible head-on collisions. Seems like at least once a week you were hearing about one! Then they put this barrier up all along it last year and that pretty much stopped them. Now if they could only do something about idiot drivers who go 95 mpr and weave in and out of traffic!

Awww, that's a sweet photo of your dad!

Yep, idiot's all over down here too. I love it when "they" pass me, and then we end up at the same stop sign. :)

Hope you have a wonderful day, buddy!

I agree with Sally--always brings a smile to my face when the idiot that weaves in and out of traffic and goes over the speed limit, ends up at the same stop light I end up at. Nice pics--love the Mackinaw Bridge. Did you know that you can see it (briefly) from the hill by Sea Shell City? the kids always had a contest to see who could spot the bridge first.

We used to vacation around Mackinaw when I was a kid. Love that area. BTW, they put up a bunch of those types of barriers around here and they seem to work also. I guess you bounce off them when you hit them rather than go in the other lane.
