Sliding Down the State

Here we are DownState for the month of October.

First of all, Dick worked at the Visitor Center from 9 to 12 - he logged 70 visitors, including a former Belleville student and Kelvin.

Then we were off to Ann Arbor for the football season. It was a lovely day for a drive, and it went fast - trips always go faster when you take naps :).

We pulled into the Valley Ranch around 5:30 p.m., and the door was locked. We had thought that it was going to be unlocked with the keys on the table. The woman in the office didn't know anything about it, so Dick made some phone calls and got it all straightened out and the woman let us in! Whew. It seems that painters had been doing some touch-ups and they were supposed to leave the door unlocked when they left, but instead they locked it.

Luckily, we have the same apartment we had last year, so it almost feels like home.

Moved in, grabbed a burger at McDonald's, did some grocery shopping at Meijer, put everything away and collapsed to watch the debate. The debate was a little ho-hum, or maybe we were just tired.
