ive done some trips up to port huron with rescue dogs the last couple months. ive lived in michigan my whole life and have seen that stretch of the coast- along the st clair river. it is absolutely awesome!
the soo is a really nice town.
funny story time!
went on a roadtrip with a friend on our motorcycles into the U.P. stopped in the soo for the night. got a bite to eat at a local pub/restaurant. afterwards we were sittin outside have a cigarette when i said,"i wonder if theres a meeting in this town tonight?"
a cop was driving by so my friend shouted out to him. i was wondering why.
cop pulls up and he asks him if he knew where there was an AA meeting.
"follow me."
he turned his lights on and blew through town pretty quick! guided us to an alley parking lot where there were a couple people standing outside smoking-yup!AA meeting.
we go over to his car and the cop says,"ive been a cop for a long time. thats the first time someone asked me where an AA meeting was-you deserved the escort."
walked up and greeted those standing outside. an old fart says," ive been to meetings all over. thats the first time ive seen a cop show up BEFORE the meeting started."

Love the joey video. I recognize the the song in the background, too; just can't think of the name of it.

Why don't blue whales go to opening screenings of doco's about them?

Because they never get invited.
