It’s been a great Memorial Day weekend for me, so far, and there is still another day to go! On Friday, I was invited on a boat cruise on the Detroit River. The weather was perfect and the company even better. Most of my family was able to hop aboard for the two-hour cruise. Despite all the great food and drink from the Portofino Restaurant on board, we even had the J.W. Wescott Tug Boat - an actual floating post office - deliver pizza! There were at least 40 pizzas delivered to us just as we passed under the Ambassador Bridge. Thankfully no pizzas were damaged or lost in the deep water below as the tug docked to our deck.
The very next evening I was at a family wedding at the beautiful Colony Club in downtown Detroit. The Colony Club is located between the Fox Theatre and the Town Pump in Detroit’s Theatre District. The club has some interesting history. Matter of fact, just today I heard George Clooney had spent some time at the Colony Club prior to shooting a scene there for his movie The Ides of March.
We all know that Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer. My pool is open and ready. Matter of fact, today I took the plunge…if that’s what you want to call it. Joyce doesn’t “plunge” into anything. But I DID descend the stairs into the clear waters. Quite refreshing. Now I am waiting for the grandchildren to join me!
Just before my tradition of viewing the Memorial Day Concert on the Lawn at the Capitol in D.C. , I decided to gas up my car and then make a quick run to the grocery store for a couple of items.
I quickly ran through the store just scurrying the outer aisles. After reaching the register and paying for my few items, the clerk asked me if I preferred my milk in a bag. I told her I preferred it in a glass! I made her day!
Have a safe Memorial Day and take a minute to remember our fallen heroes who have given us the freedom we cherish.
