The Tridge

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Earlier this week I encountered this picture of “The Tridge” a three way foot bridge in Midland Michigan and it intrigued me. I had never seen or heard of it before and really wanted to experience it in person. the_tridge

Once I had a rough idea of where it was located, plans were made to see it Saturday, 4/11. Cool. When Friday rolled around, an ice cold splash of reality washed over me. I was spent. After stepping back and assessing where I was at, I had to come to accept that I was neither physically or financially able to take on such a frivolous trip at this time. ūüė¶ So I let it go.

This morning I did my usual routine of jogging and swimming at the RAC and was planning a chill day of chores and R&R when the darndest thing happened. I asked my older brother why my younger brother had to be dropped off so early from spending the night. He advised that he and my younger brothers had an Eagle Scout ceremony to attend in Bay City and had to get ready. My head snapped up. Bay City is next to Midland. The wheels started turning and opportunity knocked. I was quick to answer. I made a quick call to my parents and worked out a few details. I would tag along as a passenger to Bay City and borrow a vehicle to scoot over to Midland.

I don’t know why this worked out, but I am so glad it did!

Thanks for reading!

Snow Day


No. I’m not digging my car out – yet.

Taylor is buried in snow today! I caught a chest cold from shoveling last night and boy does it hurt! *wheeze* *throb* *hack*After assessing my condition this morning, I called off from work and am now “pampering” myself with steaming hot showers, cups of tea with lemon and honey, and a jar of Vick’s. Reminder: Do not use Vick’s close to your eyes. May cause irritation and watering.

Drive safely and stay warm everyone!
