Its coming - Boing! Boing!

This morning finds me just North of Detroit, miles from home, where I am enjoying a very nice visit with my daughter and her family. The arrival of Spring just will not wait until I get settled back at home. Here it comes bouncing in and nothing can stop it - Boing! Boing! Boing! So I am setting in a hotel room working on a laptop trying to change my blog theme from St Patrick's Day to Spring and hoping to pull it off without all of the accumulated files and assets from my desk top machine. Actually I think it came out as I had planned it, or at least a close facsimile.

I have stated many times that I am a foodie. For several years I have been interested in touring a group of shops operated in Ann Arbor Michigan. Zingerman's which started as a small Delicatessen has now grown to include a coffee shop, coffee company, creamery, bake shop, cooking schools, and a rather eclectic full service restaurant. After repeatedly twisting her arm over the years I was able to persuade my daughter to accompany me on a visit to the place. It then became the focal point for this visit. Yesterday she, her two young men, and I jumped into the car and were off on our adventure. We visited the full complex and earned our "Food Tour" free T-shirt awards.

It was a fun time for all except when I stupidly ran out of gas on the way back. If you ever have a day free in that area I recommend you check it out. I have to run now, I have another long and busy day ahead.

It was great having you dad! Sorry I didn't get to say goodbye, thank you for understanding. You really would not have wanted to see me anyway! I just pray you don't get sick too.
