Here’s the deal: I’m going to start writing (looks like I’ve already started!) without having any idea whatsoever what I’m going to write about. Consider it an exercise wherein I take a few minutes and share a bit (a tiny fraction, really) of what’s going on in my mind. I’ll try my best to keep it clean.
A while back, I posted a piece on the Emerald Ash Borer, the creepy little invasive insect that’s killing ash trees around the country. The EAB has decimated ash trees here in Michigan, and it’s so depressing to drive down the road and see so many dead trees…they’re everywhere.
Time is short today, so this is gonna be quick. ‘96 Tears‘ by Question Mark & The Mysterians from Bay City, Michigan, is not a song about summer. But it is a song for summer. It’s a top-down, windows down, radio cranked up kind of song. It’s a perfect song. It may be the perfect song.
Oh my Lord these friggin’ roads…… As if to add insult to injury after what has been a historically dreadful winter here in Michigan, the ice and snow has melted away from our roads to reveal a natural disaster on a scale we haven’t seen around here since, well, ever. I’m talking about the potholes.
