I turn 40 this Tuesday and that sucks. But hey, that's life and we can't turn back the clock. In celebration of this milestone my wife did a wonderful thing. With the assistance of Norland and Arn she planned a weekend retreat over in one of my favourite places...The West Side of MI. The trip included 1st class accommodations and a guided trip on the Muskegon with Jeff Stuhan. Then entire event had unfolded without my knowledge and came as a complete and utter surprise. The fun and games started at the US customs when she stone faced told the border guard we were heading to Kalamazoo, MI. For the next 4 hrs she had me 100% dazed and confused as to where we would end up.
Life is a funny thing. I guess I'm getting wise in my old years but I am finally coming to the realization that we all too often measure our successes through accomplishments and material things when its really about the people, places, and experiences that grace our existence. To my wife of nearly 15 years I say "thank-you and I love you!" To the two sh*t rats Norland and Arn who helped her pull it all off I tip my gay fishing visor! ;0) For both being useless POS you guys are alright!
I was tempted to bore you all with the play by play but opted for a pictorial story of the trip. I'll save the play by play for the next road trip...
