I've joined a group on facebook that talks about being from Escanaba (my hometown) and what it was like. I've enjoyed many aspects of it but none more than seeing the old pictures from even before my time there. Here are two recently posted ones where the streets aren't even paved yet circa 1900. The Ogden Ave one is across the street from where I grew up and some of these homes are still there (as is my childhood home built in the late 1800's). The other picture is part of the main street downtown and while it doesn't look like
that now I knew exactly where it was when I looked at it. Pretty interesting to one from this pretty little town
in the U.P. of Michgan.
It was just another Saturday for us with a mishmash of activities. First we helped Matt and Sara move kitchen and closet stuff into Matt's place. A visit with Penny (our granddog) and Leo the cat included. Then on downtown where we stopped for a glass of wine after walking around and on for Thai food. We ended our day at an electronic music happening where we were probably the oldest people there. That was great spot for people watching and made us realize we're just not "with" the latest fashion trends but "oh well" that is just fine with us!
