Red Cherries, White Legs & Blue Angels
Ahhhh, summer has officially begun for those of us stuck in Northern Michigan. Especially now that our large week long fiasco called The National Cherry Festival has started. For one week, hoards of thousands of tourists descend upon our town to clog up our roads, litter our great lakes, and leave their fudge stained finger prints on everything. A little bitter you may ask? Yes, because while I have grown up here my entire life and have been one of those few who work and make this town run.....WHY do I have to be the one to pay the price?! All I want to do is drive 5 minutes away to buy some damn diapers (which turns into a 45 minute slug race because SILLY ME, a parade just ended.) AAAAAHHHHHH!
