As I mentioned in my last post my son-in-law Brad was already looking for somewhere for us to go next year on our vacation. The good news is he found a place! We reserved it for a few weeks later than we normally go because it was already booked through July! It's on Houghton Lake, which is an inland lake in the middle of the state a little north of center. It's the largest inland lake in the state. We used to vacation there when the kids were very small. The best part is there is 100 feet of beach for the boys to play on!
It looks like a great place, and we are excited but now I'm going to forget about it because it's more than a year away!
Last Monday I took my car in for an oil change and tire rotation. I've only had it since the end of February, but it already has 5700 miles on it! Well, we did take it on two trips, to South Carolina and up north. Even though there are Chevy dealers closer to my house I took it to the dealer where I purchased it because the first oil change is on them and it didn't cost me anything. Plus I got a free car wash! Gotta get those bargains when you can, right?
This was the display at the side of one of the stores in Mackinaw City I saw last week. It was so pretty with the blue stones and the flower yard decorations.
This was a house under construction in downtown Plymouth.
It's not uncommon to see construction equipment hanging from cranes at construction sites to keep people from stealing it but I've never seen a bunch of ladders hanging like this before!
Yesterday we were sitting at our kitchen table when we heard a crash outside on our deck.
A wind gust had grabbed the umbrella, and the force shattered our glass table! The umbrella was laying on the ground next to the deck.
Of course, it's safety glass so it shattered into a trillion little pieces! It took us over an hour to clean it all up! There was glass in the cracks on the deck and on the lawn in front!
Thank goodness we were not sitting there at the time or we could have been seriously cut!
I never really liked that table and I can't say I'm sorry it's gone! It was such a pain to keep clean and it really was too big for that space. I was contemplating selling it anyway. Now I don't have to bother!
I bought two cheap little side tables to use for the rest of the summer. I like it much better!
That's it for me for now.
Until the next time stay safe and well my friends!
