YAY, it’s Wednesday again. Beware of flying Deplorians appearing out of nowhere if you venture out today. Better yet, just stay in and enjoy another almost exciting ESN style Serendipitous Frisbee Photo Prompt, sponsored as always by Marilyn. If you’ve been paying attention, and chances are you haven’t, I’ve dedicated the last few weekly photo prompt posts to my annual September baseball trips I took from 2009-2013. Today is Part IV which brings us to 2012’s jaunt to beautiful downtown Detroit Rock City!
In my forty years on this spinning ball of rock in the sky, I have never set foot in any other country other than my homeland, the U. S. of A. There’s a pretty good chance that will not change when my number comes up like Buster’s often does. But thanks to my Detroit trip, and a second-day side journey to the shores of Lake Huron, I can at least say I have SEEN a foreign country… even if it is just our 51st state, Canada.
That land with the trees way off in the distance there… yep, according to the map I used to find my way to the lake (So I didn’t get lost like when I tried to find Lake Erie on my Cleveland trip), that terra firma belongs to Canada, or maybe The Queen. I may or may not have waved to my Canadian neighbors, I can’t remember. But given that Detroit is always in a yearly battle with my own hometown of St. Louis for the coveted title of Most Dangerous City in America… I probably didn’t let my guard down enough to send my greetings across the only dotted and dashed lined international border I’ve ever been this close to.
And before anyone reports me to the Mounties for being snarky because of the funny spelling in the title, “kannada” comes from one of my readers’ best loved, real, honest to goodness search terms that I featured in last year’s Sandy Awards.
Well, I’ll try to do better next time when I try to find a non-baseball pic from my final trip… which will take us to the new home of the Bowling Hall of Fame… Arlington, Texas! See ya then… and if you ever visit the coast of Lake Huron, don’t go after Labor Day like I did unless you bring some Depends…
