This quote is by Storm Jameson. It was on a card our neighbors Risa and Bruce gave us before we parted ways and it really nails it.
There is only one minute in which you are alive, this minute, here and now
The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.
Which is exactly what it is - a miracle and unrepeatable.
HOLA. Today is Day 4 of "Lauren and Steve's Excellent Adventure" or "Holy Cow I Live in a Trailer"!!!!
The furniture has been moved into storage. We then moved into the trailer while we finished up our Toledo-related activities. Let me just say this to all of you - - if you, at this point in your lives, own 7 different kinds of serving spoons and a service for 16 when there are only 4 or less of you - - GET RID OF IT! You cannot imagine how frustrating it can be when you discover how much unused and duplicate stuff you have. Know what I am saying? PURGE NOW before it's too late. Ok that's my advice.
Last Wednesday night we had a party with Steve's family which gave us a chance to say goodbye to all of them. It
was a really great time and we appreciated everyone coming out to send us off.
On Saturday, we had a Klott family reunion up at our cottage in Gladwin. That, too, was a nice party and they even had a cake for us
For now, we are in Gladwin until Tuesday and then head to the UP - - specifically Newbery, the moose capital of Michigan. If anyone has anything they think would be particularly interesting for us to see while we are in the UP, please let us know. Neither of us have been there since we were kids and then our memories are very faint. At this point we plan to see the Soo Locks, Whitefish Point, PIctured Rocks, Copper Harbor, Tahquamenon Falls, Porcupine Mountains, and of course, the Mystery Spot in St. Ignace (how can you NOT stop at the Mystery Spot?). Thanks everyone.We're on our way to find So-Crates (get it? That's how Bill and Ted pronounced Socrates' name in the movie). Oh Well.
