September 26


I live on the outskirts of Grand Rapids Michigan where there is an international art competition happening. There are 1,262 artists from 15 countries competing in 159 areas throughout the city. A friend and I spent the day walking around and looking at many of them.
This one has received a lot of attention. We have our own Loch Ness Monster in our Grand River!

*we couldn't tell what it was made of, but it didn't look like wood when we were closer to it.

I wish I had met you while I lived in South Bend! We used to go through Grand Rapids quite a bit!

You have your own Trojan Nessie. Hope it doesn't open up with little people coming out. :)

Nice outing with your friend today. Thanks for sharing! :)

Wow! What a find! Nice photo of an unusual "nessie" lol Like he rest of the photo too. Nice park.

Remember the poem I posted on one of your posts? Well, you can hear the music to it now, sung by Waylon Jennings, himself. Thanks to Sunny, I now have a playlist on my blog. As I told her, the problem was, I was like a kid back in 1940 turned loose in a candy store with 5 cents - back when 5 cents could buy a lot of candy.

So, you will need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the list to find "The Union Mare and Confederate Gray." Enjoy.
