everything you ever wanted to know about nothing at all...

It's a one track town, just brown, & a breeze too..
Grand Haven's a great place to be in the summer time. There's anything you could ever need, especially if you like to be near the lake. I wonder what it would've been like to grow up here. If I grew up here I'd probably be one of those people that never goes to the beach. If it weren't for Christie, I'd probably be one of those people even though I've only lived here for a year & a half. It's got golf, tennis, hikin' trails, biking trails, beaches, rivers, bayous & of course the great big lake.
Waltz was a great place to grow up, though. I wouldn't have had it any other way. It's hard to be rude to people in a town like Waltz, as everybody knows who you are. I don't remember ever feeling unsafe about anything, except for the occasional tornado warning, the neighbor's doberman pincher or the time I heard that the gypsies were in town. Looking back, I don't think there's anything really scary about gypsies other than a house minus your valuable belongings.
You had to manufacture your own fun in Waltz, although there were very few things that were off limits. My own little world consisted of that small stretch of drive on Waltz Rd from Bell Rd down to Bud's party store. Come to think of it, I don't remember that they even sold beer at Bud's, so could it be considered a party store? I don't remember cigarettes or lottery tickets being sold there, either. They did sell three of my vices, however; baseball cards, faygo cream soda & combos. Most of my contributions to Wayne County's fledgling economy as a young lad went to Bud's. I went there just about every day in the summer, I'm sure the cashiers got sick of seeing me. The baseball field was the other place where I spent most of my time in the summer, however there were usually only 3 or 4 of us playing. It didn't matter, there were some epic games that went down on that little field.
Anyway, enough rambling for today. Enjoy some pictures of my fire pit's first outing from a couple of weeks ago, taken by Christie of course.
