I’m sittin’ in a McDonalds in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, writing this.
It’s a cheery 54 degrees and a chilly all-day rain set in just as I walked into this joint.
Not to worry, it’s supposed to top out at about 62 degrees by days end.
If you’re thinking that’s about 25 degrees below my ideal, you’re so right!
Yet, because we’ve decided to move back up here, I’ll have to get used to it again.
This decision has been brewing since we lost our youngest son, Walker, some years back.
Most members of our immediate family already live in MI.
As do our 4 Grandkids.
Oh yeah, number 5, is on the way!
Plus, MI is also closer to my Mom in Kentucky.
When I post this and leave here, I’m going over to Marshall, MI, and look at apartments.
We’ve decided we don’t intend to own another house.
On the other hand, for years I’ve sworn I’d never live again in cold a*s Michigan…And here I sit.
If you live long enough, stuff happens, and conditions change, don’t they?
For the next week, or so, things will probably be a little quite for me.
But, not to worry, I’ll be back in full voice soon.
Oh, BTW, on the subject of ‘Seen It All’,
When I walked into this particular McDonald’s, I was hailed by cheery ‘Hellos’ until I responded…
Yup, they’ve a ‘Greeter’… a la Walmart.
OK, now I guess I’ve sorta seen it all, and in all candor, I’ve tried just about everything I could, at least once…
Talk to you next time.
