That sure was a good idea!

I was slow to drag myself outta the rack this morning and indecisive about going to the farmers market. The GG got up and I asked him what he thought. He said, “Go ahead and go”. (I think he was trying to get rid of me for a while.)

I had two things in mind: shelling peas and swordfish kebabs. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to find either. It’s very very late for shelling peas and the swordfish kebabs often sell out before Saturday. When they’re out, they’re out. GUESS WHAT? I found BOTH! Plus I got lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, and a couple of gorgeous eggplants.

We mobilized and hit the I75 SUV Speedway, driving tandem in the Ninja and Frog Hopper and arrived at Hoton Lake before noon. Best Choice Cherry bratwurst for lunch thanks to JimC and The Beautiful Becky and those were sooooo good that I made a run over there to get some to take north. Probably shouldda got more…

Gorgeous rain storms in the afternoon, then JimC talked us into schlepping up to Grayling to watch the start of the Au Sable Canoe Marathon. This 120-mile race (Grayling to Oscoda) starts at 9:00 PM and runs overnight. 9:00 is a wee bit too close to my bed time for comfort but I went along with it and ended up having a good time although I probably won’t go out of my way to watch it again.

I’ve been told to shut down because there’s a light show across the lake and my screen is keeping people from seeing it. G’night and typos be damned 🐸

    A canoe marathon! I could handle that kind of marathon. The running kind, not so much. 😉
