Time to head home. We bought a map and took back roads all the way home - very enjoyable. Ate lunch in Lake City at the Hometown Cafe.
Their front windows are painted with decorative snowmen. Waiting for our food, all of a sudden I noticed the theme of the snowmen and it cracked me up. The MSU snowman is skating along proudly and competently and smiling. Check out the Michigan snowman - he's very unsure of himself, he has weak ankles, and he's in danger of a fall. The look on his face is exactly the way we feel today! We got a good chuckle out of these paintings. The waitress said that they are done by "some lady" in town. She's a crackerjack, whoever she may be.
