THE ODDITIES AND INSPIRATION OF MICHIGAN

Hey all!
I know what you are thinking. ANOTHER VACATION???
Times are good for you, Rob Croxford.
It's true! Things are great.
Even if they weren't great - there is nothing like inexpensive shoes to make life great!
There. I said it!
Anyways, a couple of times a year we like to take a trip to a border city for a little shop-spree.
Usually we go to beautiful Buffalo. But this time, we went to Marvellous Michigan.
We spent 3 days in Birch Run which is near Frankenmuth/Saginaw/Flint.
Then we went up to Mount Pleasant (to the big Soaring Eagle Casino)
Finally we went to the Pontiac area to the Great Lakes Crossing.
Here are some strange and wonderful things that I saw in my week away!

Who says size isn't everything?
You know what they say "the bigger the sign....."

I think these birds are spelling "Buy some more shoes, Rob"





This was crazy - they documented the evolution of the hotel we stayed at from 1959-today!
I LOVE the retro signs in the first two pictures!



I just love me some neon!!


Hello Big Boy.


This was posted in the hotel pool.
It is both amusing and cool. 


Yes, that is one gallon of chilli.
Another reason I do not want to go hunting! 
I am just dying to learn to be fancy....
......like Nancy.


Peanut butter chocolate fudge cake.
NOW THAT IS INSPIRING!!





This sign was great. I thought it was quite clever!


The new merchandiser at Target is super gay!
I like how each of these men is described...
though I have no idea if bootcut is an insult or not??
(Thanks David for that joke!)
