Year 2 – July 26, 2013 Summer
Aahh – summer. I may have complained about a few things living in Michigan, but summer (or fall or even spring) is not one of them. Summer in Michigan is, in my humble opinion, as close to bliss as one can get. If you don’t believe me, ask Tim Allen in his Pure Michigan skits. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oHe6GRo7Dg) his voice just perfect and every time I hear one of his Pure Michigan voice over, I just feel like there is no place like Michigan.
Summer days in Michigan are just perfect. Sure, we occasionally have to put up with some high temperatures but they are far and in between. Most of the time, the weather is just perfect enough to lay on the beach, swim in one of the great lakes surrounding it, camp in one of the many beautifully maintained state campgrounds or a simple staycation in your backyard, fire up to the good old grill and have yourself a simple potato chips, ice cold coca cola and a hotdog with all its dressing. This is indeed, Pure Michigan.
