Looking forward to some sleep on the plane my brother in law and sister in law kept Julie and I up until 1:00 am last night. All good times thou.

Jun 9, 2017 - Day 1: Depart DTW for AMS

We left Carey and Jeff's house around 6:41 p.m. and arrived at Detroit Metro Airport at 7:20 p.m. Special thanks to Carey's aunt and uncle for driving us to the airport so we did not have to park our car at the airport. Our flight boarded at 9:45 and we took off promptly at 10:30. The flight was long but good. We only slept a few hours which was broken up. I played a few games on the monitor and read the first half of Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli. Rich and I also reviewed the itinerary and confirmation number for a smooth check-in.

Apr 18, 2017 - Detroit to Auckland, New Zealand

We were picked up by Diane from Airport Bus & Limo at 3 pm and arrived at Detroit Metro Airport with plenty of time to spare before our United Airlines regional jet departed at 5:50 p.m. and arriving twenty-five minutes early in Houston. Had time to check out the Centurion Lounge, very disappointing in decor and food. There was a problem with a part resulting in our Air New Zealand flight leaving 2.5 hours late at 12:45 a.m.. We upgraded to bulkhead seats, Row 47 A 7 B which allowed us to completely stretch out and elevate our legs and we...

May 15, 2016 - Detroit, MI

It is Saturday night and we are in Dearborn, MI, but this may not get sent out until Sunday or Monday, no internet for the past several days. We had planned on getting to Mt. Vernon, KY on Wednesday, but came up about 80 miles short and a good thing that was. We were late leaving Atlanta due to our satellite antenna refusing to lay down. I think Jean put the hex on it fighting with the Direct TV num-nuts. Seems like it somehow got out of sink and needed to be recalibrated. It took a couple of hours to reach someone who could help walk us...

Jan 2, 2016 - Getting de-iced!

Today we flew to Detroit as an overnight stopover to get to Hawaii. It was snowing lightly as we we being driven to the airport so we got to experience snow one last time. The check in process at the airport was a bit of an ordeal. Instead of taking our bags at the check in counter, we had to lug them through the entire process of security screening and customs! The lines were huge and when we finally got to the part where they stamp your book, I discovered they only had four people working at the desks for I reckon about 1000 people...

Sep 1, 2014 - Leaving Detroit, MI The Adventure Starts

While on I-94 leaving Detroit we saw Uncle Joe Biden's motorcade coming into Detroit. After such a great thrill (too much excitement for one day) we had to slow down and take our time getting to Gas City, Indiana. (I say this jokingly because in the thirty some years at the City of Troy, I was on at least three security details for President Bush). Now, we are in no hurry and 205 miles was just fine for the first day of our trip to Kansas. We were to the Mar-Brook Campground alongside I-69 by 3 pm. Settled in, and relaxed the rest of the...

Aug 10, 2014 - Going Home

When I went up for breakfast the morning the ship had already docked in Seattle. They had warned us that it would take time to complete the paperwork and other preparations before anyone could disembark. I saw lots of equipment being set up near our cabin. Apparently, we would all be disembarking on Deck 4 near our cabin. When I got back from breakfast, there were huge lines filling all of the hallways on Deck 4. As with most cruise lines, passengers who wanted to carry their own luggage could get off first. Even though disembarkation...

Jul 20, 2014 - Owen For Dinner

Caught up on housekeeping this morning before starting dinner. Owen came at four and spent the evening with us. Such a treat. He doesn't get many days off. Spencer taught me how to transfer pictures to a new file and then burn them on a CD. I am not the best pupil but eventually I caught on and that project was finished by 10 p.m. I am very proud of myself. Spencer is just glad that it's done. My last doctor's appointment is tomorrow at 4. Hurray! I am anxious to start getting test results.

Jul 5, 2014 - Baseball Detroit style

Four hour drive from Cincinnati to Detroit. Did not have a lot of time to spend touring the city, but did enjoy the stadium. It is one of the better I've been to over the years; about 30 or so to date. There was a good view of the field from any seat, a well designed promenade and access to the various food & drink vendors, though no bargains to be found; hot dogs - $5, a beer - $9, a bag a nuts - $4.50. There was also good team history exhibits throughout the stadium. After the game drove 4 hours to Pittsburgh for the next stadium & game...

Sep 2, 2013 - Belleville, MI (Detroit area) 9-2 to 9-9-5

Detroit area gave us a chance to go to the Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. We spent a full day at each. The Ford Museum has everything from mid 1800's farm equipment, household furnishings, railroad cars and antique to present auto's. Step into the sights, sounds and sensations of 300 years of American life at Greenfield Village --a historical presentation of an old village. Many original buildings from Fords childhood home, Edison's workshop, Noah Webster's home and many more. We took a train, trolly, Model T and rode the 1912...

Aug 13, 2013 - Chicago To Detroit

No rain, not much construction, normal traffic - that all added up to a decent trip back to Detroit. I dropped Colin off at The Monarch at 11:15 before heading to Spencer's. I got here in time for us to have dinner together . Tomorrow starts a busy week for both of us. I will stay until Owen has his grand opening and then head south.
