Not really much to report…it’s October 1, and thus begins my favorite month of the year! There’s a chill in the air, creepy Halloween decorations are up, fall colors are starting to show and you can see pumpkins virtually everywhere! Notice I didn’t mention anything about pumpkin spice. It’s just not my thing. Close call when we grocery shopped at Aldi in Canton, MI! I almost grabbed pumpkin spiced hard cider! Ooops…In other random news, the old “Tilted Kilt” spot in that strip mall is still vacant. I played a few trivia games there in late 2015 and early 2016.
Speaking of trivia, I’ll be doing a “name that tune” game Tuesday, a trivia game Wednesday in Ann Arbor and possibly a game Thursday, too. Thursday is TBD as of now. My living room may be invaded by a couple of nerdboys that evening and if so, I’ll escape to a trivia game!
In other exciting news, my six-day fall vacation starts next Thursday! We’ll be embarking on yet another Lake Huron adventure, with stops in Harrisville, MI and Tawas City, MI. I won’t be able to post too many blogs when I’m up there unless I step into a WiFi hot spot, but I will try to check in with this site when I can! Did you know Harrisville is Michigan’s sixth smallest city by population (not including villages, etc. not incorporated as cities)? For inquiring minds, Angelus Lake in Oakland County is Michigan’s smallest city.
One stop we want to make “Up North” is at Wiltse’s in Oscoda. This restaurant/brewpub is famous for its homemade chicken dumpling soup! What better stick-to-your-ribs dinner on a chilly fall evening?
The cabin we like to rent in Rogers City was not available this time. This will be an excuse to check out the cabin in Harrisville instead! Always an adventure…
