Things I miss about Michigan...

I was raised in Michigan and no longer live there. I never thought I would miss ANYTHING from there but now that I'm older (and wiser) I find myself looking back and longing for a few things..... 1) Kogel's meats: especially their Vienna Weiners and pickled bologna 2) Sunset at 10PM in the summer! 3) all the LAKES!!!! 4) Thunderstorms 5) My gramma's house 6) Pickin' berries "up north" at my other grandma's 7) NO chiggers!!!! or Ticks!!! 8) the small town "cheese" that tastes SO GOOD!! Colby that LOOKS and tastes like COLBY! 9) "Hadly Hills" (small out of the way place where we kids could ROAM in the "wild", use to be a cave there but someone shot it up and it collapsed just before we moved back in .... 1970 something... 10) the OLD cool looking houses 11) small family farms 12) deer hunting in the winter, trudging through snow and stepping in small creeks where you get soaked and have to go home and drink hot chocolate while you sit with your bare feet up in front of the stove 13) SNOW -but I hear there is not too much there now a days :( 14) The schools! GASP! Did I just say that??? lol! I will deny it if anyone tells! 15) going UP NORTH! 16) living on a 'mitten' 17) being an hour ahead of "everyone" hehehe 18) being on the far FAR FAR end of the New Madrid fault (instead of being smack dab on it) 19) the not so humid humidity (much less than down here in the south) 20) the people who talk fast and in an interesting accent 21) the get it done NOW attitude (not like down here where the attitude is "we'll git 'raund to et" 22) gardening seemed so much easier up there!! 23) smelt dippin' 24) pan fry perch for breakfast 25) did I mention all the LAKES??? 26) Bob Seger 27) the Great LAKES! 28) The Lighthouse cheeseburgers! 29) handymen! (are there still handymen around there???) 30) white birch trees! Sadly all these wonderful things cannot lure me back to MI because there is one con that prevents it: my evil stepmother. 'nough said about that.


  1. I can think of a few things I miss but also lots of stuff I don't miss about MI... property taxes, winter snow, and such. Did I mention winter snow?

    We'd sure like another installment on "Hello Ladies & Gentlemen".



  2. Hi Sportsman! Yes you did mention snow! :)

    and I'm working on it! lol! Thanks for stopping by today!


anyone can now comment but I will still monitor them so that the site does not get a bunch of spam on it.
