..in Frankenmuth, the town that celebrates Christmas all year long.
Yesterday Patti went along with me to take care of some business... and then she invited me along with her family to see the Christmas lights and get some photos in Frankenmuth. Ah yes, and we had dinner together at Sullivan's Black Forest.
Here is a photo I took of the nativity scene near the Silent Night Chapel. My goodness! Is it already the weekend before Christmas??? It seems time is moving way way too fast!
A few days ago I posted my plea for Michigan residents to tell Governor Granholm to sign the Homeowners' Fairness bill - HB-4617S-4. I actually did this on several web sites. I think she is getting our message. I'm not sure if she will pass or veto the bill, but I'm convinced she knows the previously silent majority is speaking out through the Tittabawassee River Voice and our friends at Midland Matters.
Last week my friend Len and I had radio spots running on WSGW, a local radio station, all week long. The clincher was Wednesday, when Len got to have an interview session on the Art Lewis show on WSGW. Len's amazing when it comes to explaining such matters. I think he really got our message across because Thursday and Friday Art Lewis had call-in's all in support of the legislation. Folks this is democracy at work!!!
Len isn't just a 'good time friend' either. Last week he cleaned the snow off my back deck and showed me how to use my snowblower. Yesterday, after yet another snowfall, he stopped by, cleared snow off the deck again and then cleared my whole driveway with the snowblower! It was all nice and clear when Patti & family came over to pick me up!
Tonight Nat & I had a nice long phone conversation. I was telling her how there didn't appear to be anything worth watching on TV, then I checked the listings for 9:00 pm... and ended up watching a really cute little movie on the Hallmark Channel - Meet the Santas, with Crystal Bernard.
Today I'm feeling to have good family and friends.
