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 children..duck 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. "...my business hasn't been strictly legal..." And if you have to ask who Clyde Barrow is...well...do 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!
