Note to Sarah Grace

I've tried 5 times to comment on your blog post about My Space and Facebook and your blog will not give me a word verification or let me post without it. Frustrating. I'm giving up. So sorry. I even tried from two different computers and wrote quite a long comment.

Vintage Diner at the Ford Museum

I love old diners and this one inside the Henry Ford museum is a winner! It reminds me of all the old diners I used to love that are disappearing from our American landscape now. All chrome and polish! Wonderful! It was moved here from Massachusetts and reconstructed.

We're currently having a snowstorm. Biker Buddy (otherwise known as
Mountain Man) and I went cross coutnry skiing at Balduck Park, which
is near where we live in Detroit. It was snowing very hard, but it
doesn't show in the pictures.

At the Belle Isle Conservatory

Poetry class tonight. This is from our Saturday visit to the
conservatory. BB and I both took a "sick day" yesterday and stayed
home. I was exhausted from being awake all night and he is still
recovering from a bad fall when the Lake Wall collapsed.
