We have returned from our week-long trip up north to visit our daughter for Thanksgiving. We had the traditional turkey and trimmings on Sunday afternoon with her and several of her college buds. Then we took a side trip to Michigan to visit yet another Presidential library/museum, the Gerald Ford museum in Grand Rapids.
At the Ford Museum we enjoyed a personal tour by the curator, Don Holloway, who is a friend of a relative. It was wonderful! We even got to see some of items not currently on public display, e.g. a football from Okla. State U. and a fur coat Ford wore on a trip to the USSR. Thanks Mr. Holloway!
The foliage and scenery in Michigan was postcard perfect. After Grand Rapids, we went "up north," crossed the Mackinac bridge, and drove thru the U.P. (upper peninsula). On Thanksgiving Thursday the restaurant and art museums we planned to visit were closed, so our daughter fixed salmon and risotto, then we went to a movie. Just like the Pilgrims. --KT
