I spent a weekend working at the races, this time in Elk Grove, Illinois. We had a good race, despite not winning. Here’s a couple pictures from the racing.

Then I was back to Grand Rapids for a few more days of nanny/babysitter/home health care aide/gardener/cook/cat wrangler. Catrina's recovery has been quick though, perhaps due to the high quality of care she's gotten, perhaps motivated to get rid of a persistent house guest? Only she knows for sure. Either way, I've enjoyed being here and being helpful.

Still working on learning to aim the camera for those self portraits.

Steak with peppers. Yum! I wish I could take credit for cooking this but the credit belongs to Jeff. 2nd place in the Wii golf championship! Yeah Jeff!

So I’m back on the road. I stopped to visit my friend Ivan but a sudden illness caused that visit to get rescheduled. I ended up in Hart, Michigan, at a nice little city run campground. Finally back in my own bed!

So, for those who are following along on a map, I'll be continuing north, heading into upper Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. I had contemplated a tour of the north shore of Lake Huron (Canadian side), to compliment last year's tour of the north side of Lake Superior, but let's just say the motivation did not materialize.

This week's musical selection is from Wreckless Eric.


I will now resume my regularly scheduled low-earth orbit.

  1. Hey buddy, I adore your pictures/writings. I especially love the one where you were the babysitter! Glad you are okay and enjoying your time. I'm sorry I missed you while you were in MI. Love B.
