Well it seems plans are made to be changed. So we are at the Wayne County Fair Grounds in Belleville, MI. We signed up for a week, here we have full hookups for the Motor home and we feel at HOME. We had a conference with the Hospital staff this morning. Things are better but not as good as they could be. For sure John is more active, waves a finger or hand when I go in the room and makes eye contact.
He watches TV, loves the sports channel. Anyone who knows Johnny knows he is a walking sports almanac. That is a Harris trait. Even Sherry knows sports, it is part of the Harris DNA.
I seldom go in the room more than once a day. If I am there and someone tries to talk to me, they have to raise their voices too much, etc. I stay out to avoid causing more hassle than necessary.
But I am learning things up here in the North though. You know those mountains of snow I have been talking about? Yeah the ones they load onto dump trucks and take to outlying places. Or on the far end of a parking lot where it has been pushed with snow plows. Well all the trash dirt and rocks that have been picked up stay right there after the snow melts. Amazing how littered the highways and roads are now that most of the snow is gone. The snow melts and the trash etc just settles where it was piled.
Pot holes are expected, and hopefully fixed after every spring thaw.
It would be wonderful if this place could claim the top-spot for autos it once held in the world. It is funny to me, that this area, bordering on Canada offers grits with your breakfast. That is from the influence of the southern folk that came to Detroit to build cars. This is an amazing area, a mixture of ALL the southern states along with the original Michiganders.
You will notice the Car of The Day is the Studebaker. Shirl and Jim had a great collection of Studebakers.
This was Jim & Shirl’s prize as they drove around town.
Thanks for coming by the log.

And the Studebaker design remembered most:
If you are ever in South Bend, Visit the Stud museum there, it is the best auto museum I ever visited.
