Dirt road pigeon

This road I was on today was so secluded, that I drove up on a pigeon sleeping in the middle of it. I rolled my window down to take a photo and as I passed it, it flew away.

This was from the annual Father Fred Foundation Garage Sale Fundraiser on Saturday. A great event for a great cause.

This is a man who spends a lot of time helping others while working for a local non-profit organization. So it's way more than befitting that his two kids and him are the recipient of a home from Habitat for Humanity. As we were standing on a small hill overlooking the house that would soon be his home, he said, "God is good Keith, God is good."

These buffalo were grazing today next to a soccer field I was taking pictures at.

Hobby Shop

A good chunk of my money and time were spent on these same balsa-wood gliders (the simple ones toward the window, not that complex monster bi-plane) when I was a kid. They're still making them so they must still be popular.

State Hospital

This woman was a nurse at the old Traverse City State Hospital. There was a reunion the other day for former employees and a tour of the hospital was one of the items on the itinerary. It was amazing to hear how vividly they could remember stories from their time working there. I took many photos so I'll post more later. The room in this photo was the old kitchen and the woman in the photo used to load food into carts to take back for the patients.
