Petra had to return for a 3rd and even 4th time to the wonderful and exciting city of Flint, Michigan to get her medical records filled out properly for USCIS (immigration). If you ever have the opportunity to go to Michigan Health Specialists in Flint — don’t. What we had to deal with at that building with each visit was so completely ridiculously unprofessional, that I briefly considered whether or not we were in a nuthouse instead of a medical facility. The upside to this latest setback in a long marathon of patience and determination testing, was that we got to visit with my parents once again.
Any of you who have visited my folks house know how comforting, warm, peaceful and inviting their house is. Especially if you came to our wedding. Anyway, we had a great time with them making dinner, drinking wine, discussing quantum physics and playing brain teaser wooden puzzles while polishing off an expensive bottle of scotch. We watched the republican national convention just for comedic sake and to raise all our blood pressure about 200 points.
Petra and I also stopped by the Parshalleville Cider Mill (where we had our wedding ceremony) to say hello to the owners, Jack and Sandy Detlef. We bought an apple pie, blackberry spread, mango and habanero salsa and cider to wash it all down. While I was there I also did a 360˚ panorama of both my folks and the cider mill (more to come soon).
We also had lunch in Ann Arbor at Sevas and stopped into the Washington street gallery for a perusal of some of their latest works on display there. We took the Megabus home to Chicago, which is where we are now, writing this post on my phone.
