Just Some More Weekend Photos...From The Goofball

Just some more of my weekend photos. Some may be a little *goofball* so prepare yourselves! This is the Bed and Breakfast in Wyandot, Michigan that was our home away from home. We can not wait to go back in the Spring. Gerry and Vicki were phenomenal! They are two of the dearest people and made us feel so welcome. We had great fellow guests so the conversation was lively. Their home is just lovely...
Another of the 4 pretty guest rooms. Our room...we had a small sitting area, huge bathroom and a powder room. A little fireplace, A bottle of sherry and crystal glasses, nice window views, television and a DVD player. We also had a BIG walk in shower AND a claw foot tub! Now that was Heaven! While we were at dinner (at Portofino's On The Lake and oh wow! Was it delicious!) our bed was turned down, the fireplace turned on and dark chocolates were resting on our pillows. Here are a few more pictures from The Henry Ford Museum Any school child in the 50s and early 60s will remember class rooms like this as well as the chalkboard instructions! "Okay and cover!" Uh huh. This was going to save us from nuclear annihilation!
Abraham Lincoln's rocker from Ford's Theater. Anyone as old as I am remembers gas station rest rooms like this...and gas stations with full service too. "Wash your windows Ma'am? Check your oil?" I loved this letter from Clyde Barrow to Henry Ford. " business hasn't been strictly legal..." And if you have to ask who Clyde Barrow NOT tell me. I am already feeling my age today! The limousine in which JFK was assassinated. The Montgomery, Alabama transit bus in which Rosa Parks made her courageous stand. Oh yes, the original weinermobile. "Oh I wish I was an Oscar Mayer...."Okay, so these neon signs take me back a few years. I KNOW I am old! Loved this actual diner...and yes you young whippersnappers! I have eaten in such places!! Quit reminding me how old I am! And no, I did not KNOW Thomas A. Edison in person...ha ha. You are SO funny! It was such a sweet weekend and Bill and I really enjoyed getting away together. Thank you for sharing our weekend with us through these pictures...goofball and otherwise!

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I think this is going to be fun! Your B&B looks like the same age/style as the one we stayed in in Seattle; early 1900 Craftsman. Our decor was a bit more masculine though. Maybe I will post those pix sometime.

Amazing photos! What a wonderful weekend. I remember when McDonald hamburgers were 15cents (1977):-}

Andi said...

The B&B is beautiful. Sounds like you had a great birthday weekend.

I love that you take wonderful "goofball" pictures. That's just the kind I I think you're really cool!!! And I know who all the people you mentioned are...even Clyde. I have a friend with a dog named Bonnie!

Thanks for the trip! Loved the photo of the cafe with bar stools ... now, that looks familiar. What a serene B&B you had.

Sheila said...

What a great B & B.
I'm glad you had such a good time, and the waether looks perfect. I like museums etc, and obviously you do too.

Valerie said...

sounds like you had a wonderful time, and i had no idea that the Ford museum had that many different things in 'em like Lincoln's rocker and JFK's limo? who knew!

Melissa said...

The bed and breakfast looks gorgeous! Love the woodwork in the house, and the bathtub, how pretty!

The Ford Museum photos were also great.

I'm glad you had a great weekend.

So glad you liked Michigan. When we moved to the Ann Arbor area from California I was really surprised at the beauty of Michigan. Too bad the winters aren't a couple of months shorter!

"My business hasn't been strictly legal"...that's just funny coming from him.

Randey and I have been saying that we're going to spend a weekend at a B&B in Granbury. This is one of those things we just keep putting off...need to stop doing that, huh?

By the way, my youngest - Jacob - LOVED the old McDonald's sign. He was fascinated (and I was getting pretty offended about all his talk of how "old" and "funny" the Hamburger guy looked. Geez. The kid has no tact, that's for sure).
