So Then ....

Last Thursday (oh mah holy hell, I haven't posted in a looooong time) at the last minute, Don got Detroit Tiger tickets from his boss. It was a day game so we made the best of our day in Detroit, since the Tigers SUCKED the wind out of the game in the third inning.


Thanks Brandon Inge for doing your part!


So then ...

We walked back to our super cool parking space ascloseasthis to Comerica Park, (never have recieving a parking ticket there before) .... only to find a $30 frickin' ticket. Yes, that's my Black G-6 the one with the ticket on it!.


So then ...

In my Nancy way, I took a buncha pics showing there is no warnings about parking and I'll send them in with my $30 check.

So then ...

We headed over to Tiger Stadium, the historical, original home of the Detroit Tigers as I have know it all my life. It's being demolished, destroyed, pulverized, even though it could be developed into a landmark park / ball fields for kids to play in. Nope a big ugly vacant parcel of land is just what Detroit has decided it should be. George Clooney saved it for a couple days by requesting a film crew be able to use it. Of cour$e Detroit $aid $ure.


So then ...

We headed to the Better Made Potato Chip factory on Gratiot because ... hell why not? Neither of us had been there and Don has been jonesing for chips. We got a quick shot of the chips coming off the conveyor belt ...

... then decided to take a pic in front of the building and its sign.

Just as I posed and Don took aim,
Momma and her kids pulled up, right in front of me.
She couldn't care less that we were trying to be all touristy and take a pic.



So then ...

We decided to go fishing.
When we got back to Don's house,
his son Cheyne and Cheyne's friend Rich were waiting for us.

Fishing, always a great way to end the day.

Cheyne and Rich serenading (?) with "I'm On A Boat" ... poses included,

... a few perch caught, (TYVM Cheyne) ... a perfect sunset,


... and a beautiful moon to call it a night.



So then ...

This weekend ... to be continued.

What a great weekend!!!!

I don't know how you could ever leave that boat?? It would be so hard for me!

(Sorry about the parking ticket.......but it WAS a really close spot!!)

Just think of it this way...that $30 will be put to good use to clean up the city, offer services to the residents and visitors, and finance new projects like what will replace Tiger Stadium.

Or....

Pay for some overpriced chauffer to drive Martha Reeves around...pay for another over priced chauffer to drive Monica Conyers' son to school...further identify the "lack" of proper accounting practices within the Detroit Public Schools...

I could go on and on. No wonder the city is such a sh!thole.

Glad you had such a good time. LOL at Michael and the Detroit City Council.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, Nancy. Fishing and watching the sun set sounds like a great way to end the day.

Better Mades! Yum. I loved that old Tiger Stadium and I, a Connecticut native, even saw a game there.

Can't wait for the next installment...
