    My Mini Vacation!

    Went with my mom on a mini vacation up North to the Mackinac Bridge yesterday. For those that have no idea what I'm talking about which is probably pretty much everyone. The Mackinac Bridge is the bridge that connects the lower peninsula of Michigan to the upper peninsula of Michigan. It's a beautiful site, along with the Lake area. Was a nice relaxing night to be away. Thought I'd share pics.

    B-cups got the pound of fudge so hit her up!! It's currently en route her location if you want to intercept

    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Yep fudge.

    I really don't how this fudge thing came to be. I'm a Michigander so I should, but there is this place in the area here called Mackinac Island and you have to take a ferry out there and its this old Victorian Island (Somewhere In Time was filmed there) and there are no cars, etc. Well the big thing is FUDGE. It's everyplace. Like at least 5 stores on every corners its nuts!! Well b-cups has the fudge now

    Nice pics. The bridge is an awesome sight ... from the deck or the water.
    Did you get a chance to work on your Yooper accent?
    If I wanted people to like me I'd be a fireman.

    Then you'll appreciate one of my favorite cartoons from a guy named Guinden: two downstate yuppies go into a pasty shop. The woman asks the waitress
    "Can we see a menu?"
    The waitress answers: "No."

    If you've been there, it's funny.

    I was thinking the same exact thing.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    So I'm heading back up towards fudge land the week of August 15th with the family.

    If anyone is interested, they can hit me up with a pm and we can arrange a fudge transaction.

    Lol.
