I thought I'd blog about my state today as it's kind of interesting. This all started the other day when I was sitting on the toilet perusing a Reader's Digest. I read about something being invented in MI. I can't remember what it was now of course to share it with you. I live in Michigan for those of you that didn't know, or haven't figured it out by now. It's made up of 2 peninsulas. The upper peninsula or 'Da UP' is anyting north of the Mackinac Bridge. I live in the lower part, making me a troll.
We've got Hell and Paradise in MI. You can go from one to another in a day and see which you like best!
There was an old guy in my town...yes my very own town, named Tommy Durden. Now when I knew Tommy (he's pretty dead now I think), he would sit in one of the local bars and drink himself silly. He'd then get people to buy him beers if he would belly flop across the bar's wood floor. I'm sure he got splinters in his belly, but he also got free beer which was his goal in life. This isn't the interesting thing about Tommy though. I'm sure you've all heard of Elvis Presley and maybe even one of his hit songs 'Heartbreak Hotel'. Well, Tommy Durden wrote (co-wrote if you read Wikipedia) that song. Yep, my own Michigan hometown, drunk out of his mind, belly floppin Tommy.
I don't want to overstimulate you so this is enough for now. I'll share more neat stuff another day. Besides, the best thing about Michigan is the weather. Right now the sky is a gorgeous blue with just a few puffy white clouds scattered around, and the rocking chair on my front porch is calling me.
Why yes, I do believe
