JUN 22, 17 .. FLINT, MICHIGAN and NEIGHBORING CITIES and ENVIRONS.

Will any one of you, who is able to do so, please oh please will you tell me: 

Where Oh Where Does The Time Go? 

I just now put up a Post here (June 8th) and here it is, June the 22nd. 

Flint, Michigan, seems to get somewhat of a negative-rap. I am here to tell all of you, and yes, to show all of you, that it isn't exactly fair. 

CROSSROADS VILLAGE.

WELCOME TO CROSSROADS VILLAGE.



CROSSROADS VILLAGE HAS (this is how I view it Sports Fans) four (4) major attractions.

I. THE GENESSE BELLE PADDLE WHEEL BOAT.



In years past, I have ridden the GENESEE BELLE out on its lovely lake. Fun and pure joy. I did not have the time to ride her this visit.



II. THE HUCKLEBERRY RAILROAD.



In years past, I have ridden the HUCKLEBERRY RAILROAD around its loop. There is an old Steam Engine and a newer Diesel Engine (see above). More fun and pure joy. I did not have the time to ride him this visit.




The Red Caboose is, in and of itself, a tourist attraction.

III. CROSSROADS VILLAGE.





In years past, I have walked the Village. It takes a lot of walking and I (wisely) chose not to exert myself or my legs or my healing left hip. These photos I was able to snap by driving and walking just a few feet.







IV. THE CHARLES W. PARKER CAROUSEL. 

I had never ridden the (over one hundred years) old carousel and I was determined to do it this visit.



Dawn, a wonderful lady at the entrance booth into the Village, could see that neither Agnes (a life member of Crossroads Village) nor I could walk long distances. 

The give-away was our canes and walker. Dawn told me to drive back around to the Genesse Belle's Boat Dock and that the carousel was very closeby. 

We did as Dawn suggested and the carousel was indeed very close.



Below is a photo of a special, very small, carousel, for very young children.



"Let us all guess Captain!" 

"We are about to see a lot of photos of the carousel and its horses?"
















Below are photos of 'my' horse, of 'my' mighty steed!





The horses each have their own individual names.

His name? 

Look closely at him in the above photos.

What else could his name possibly be?



The carousel is well worth a quality visit.





On the very left side of the below photo, next to the carousel, you can see one of the other Crossroads Village rides.





It sure was fun. In fact it sure was a lot of fun.

Lets all of us go for a little ride up-state on I-75 to Pinconning, Michigan.

ATTENTION ON DECK! 

LISTEN UP MATES!

I, your Captain, do not drive for hours to get homemade chicken noodle soup and a tuna sandwich.




I have selected the four different ice cream flavors and now my Kitchen Sink (above and below) is being prepared.




These photos do not do it justice. It actually is larger than it appears in the photos.







Captain! You didn't? 

You couldn't possibly have eaten the whole sundae all by yourself.






Today's Rhetorical Question: 

Why would a seemingly sensible, normal man, drive for hours to wreck his health eating all of the above ice cream sundae?

I am now finished eating anything ever again.

Burp. 


BOB EVANS.

Grandpa's breakfast. You expect this from a senior citizen.



And mine? My breakfast?

Go up 23 or 24 photos. I have now stopped eating. 

Yes, I am serious.
