Going home is a trip

I’m in Grand Rapids for a long-overdue visit with my mother.

I haven’t been here in years, but there’s an odd familiarity with the people here, even though I don’t know a soul. Western Michigan is home to a lot of people with Dutch ancestry, so blonde hair is everywhere. And, brrr, it’s cold!

Mom lives in an apartment, but I’m going to drive by the old home place (now in what would best be described as a “bad” neighborhood). I’ll have some thoughts and a picture or two when I get back (if anybody cares).


  1. Look forward to the pics. You should come a little east and a touch north while there, for a visit to Toronto.

  2. I’ll be looking forward to both.

    hey, good luck up there.

    i thought dick de vos said he single handedly rebuilt that city?

    and one more comment you better not let your mom see…

    i’ve always a had a thing for blondes…especially when the carpet matched the drapes.

  4. tdc, you are a trip. LOL.
