A beautiful day in 'The D'

I don't know why people don't like Detroit. If you get passed all the murders, corrupt politicians... it's a beautiful city!!

We are SO blessed that the travel department moved a Passport Agency to our fine city, because God knows I've known about this trip to Austria for 1.5 years, and I just now decided to get Phyllis her passport! So we went down there, did i mention, you're supposed to have an appointment? I decided, I'd just try. Got there, SHOT DOWN, but the guy was super nice, and told us to use these phones then he told Phyllis for us to come here, oh yeah, he gave us an appointment and we were out of there in 30 minutes! THANK YOU JESUS!! So we will have her passport next week!!

Before we could go anywhere, Phyllis had to pee, so we stopped at Starbucks, got a drink too!

We drove around, I said want to go to 'the market'? We walked around Eastern Market, went in a few shops, went to Rocky Peanut which is so AWESOME! Bulk candy and nuts like when you were a kid! Though it's not fancy like the website shows. Phyllis's first time there so I made her take a picture. All we got were those dinner mints that are turquoise, pink, and yellow!

Then of course, our favorite place, ROMA'S!! For lunch! I had a big salad, soup, and walnut cake, Phyllis had half lasagne, half spagetti, soup, and tiramisu! And of course, brought home leftovers! I made her take a picture, she said she wouldn't smile because she had food in her teeth! But then started laughing!!

Near the end of the market!! what a beautiful day! We had so much fun!!

We decided we want to live here!

I'm so glad we don't have to mess with passports any longer! Our daughter Laura got hers last summer for our family vacation but then got married in Nov and has to change it over! Oh well, not my problem-Tee Hee!

I'm sure Phyllis is so happy you mentioned she had to go pee ;) ... I love the metro area of Detroit. It's just getting there through the vacant mansions and slums that's the killer part. Thanks for the memories in pictures. Oooompa!
