Small Biz Saturday

Road trip to Petoskey’s Gas Light District. I can’t say we added much steam to the economy today. I found a whole wall of SmartWool socks and couldn’t resist a few pairs of those. Other than that, a loverly spinach salad and glass of cab at our fave Mitchell St. Pub and a whole lot of window shopping.

Below is my favorite window of the day. A view of Little Traverse Bay from the top floor of a furniture store we floated through. We need to buy a new couch or two or three (and replace the Landfill Chitchen) but today was not the day.

As luck would have it, today was the holiday parade and here is the Petoskey High Marching Band. Or the tuuuuba section anyway. Didn’t have the cam out when the ‘bones went by. Or the flutes…

Texted a photoooo of the flagship Kilwin’s to the #1 franchise (or one of its employees anyway).

Aaaannnndddd… If you go to Petoskey, you have to visit Symon’s General Store and there is the GG heading up the steps. Yes, he’s wearing his Stormy Kromer gear.

Last but not least, the Mitchell St. Pub TV was tuned in to the U of M / Ohio State feetsball game. We caught the beginning of it while eating lunch and returned to the Houghton Lake Group Home just in time for the last seven minutes, a long ramble on two-tracks through the backwoods in between. I don’t really care about (or understand) feetsball but by the emotional displays in the room and on Twitter, it seemed to be a cliffhanger. And guess what? “We” won. First time in a long time. Bravo. Yes, I just blahgged about a football game.

I think the sun is over the yardarm. G’night! -KW.

    I don’t intend to shop at all today since I’m finished with my holiday gifts. (such as they are!) Love the buildings and the fb win. Hoping for one for my Huskies. 🙂
