Football Saturday in Ann Arbor

Yes, it is Homecoming at the University of Michigan, but MJ would rather do the Kiwanis Thrift Shop, coffee and a walk around town than attend the game.

The Place to Be on Saturday Morning in Ann Arbor


 MJ checks her size. Look at all the cool boots and do you think any of them are the same color!!

Nope, too big.

These would have been perfect for the party!

She finds clothes, though and some potatoes, a Red Cross bag, a pink purse and a bottle of something lurid green.

And you must check out the book selection. It's usually hard to get by all the people perusing them.

Then it's off to meet a friend of Billie's for coffee.

A big man about town in Ann Arbor welcomes them to come share his table.

Turns out to be that Craig guy.

And the Hunky Dory person.

There is a fairy door at the coffeehouse.

And a fairy window.

 On the way to the library to see their fairy door, they spy these great quotes laid into the walkway.
MJ likes the quote, but she likes to travel, too.
Is there a hostess in Paris?

MJ is racking her brain to figure out which it would be.

And go she will.

Ann Arbor is a city of readers. One often sees people
reading as they walk.

The library's fairy door in the children's dept.

And the fairy building.

Yoga at a museum about early Ann Arbor.

She's heard Chuck's smoke shop is a great place to hang out
and chat as the owner is so cool and welcoming.

Chuck is always glad to meet new people.

That nice big guy buys her a polish sausage and takes her
 to the block at Angel Hall, a favorite place to eat and watch
the passing it's all the people going to the game.

It is a BIG polish sausage.

A sea of Maize and Blue...everyone wears the colors.
