We spent Sunday and Monday nights with Phil Wrzesenski, his lovely wife Shannon and their two boys. Joel originally met Phil online at Seth Godin’s Triiibes. Earlier this year Joel designed the jacket for Phil’s book, Hiring and The Potter’s Wheel. In addition to being an author, Phil owns and runs the Toyhouse in Jackson Michigan. Shannon is from my hometown, San Diego California; so we had something in common from the start. Phil also plays guitar and harmonica. So Joel was able to play music again for the fourth night in a row.
Quick Update: Toronto to Michigan
We spent yesterday on the road from Ottawa to Toronto. Today we leave for Michigan. Back Stateside. Joel had lots of fun last night getting to play music with fellow FAWMers Debs and Errol. I got some great video and pictures but don’t have time to post them right now. Watch for them soon.
We’ll be meeting Phil W. in Michigan today and staying at his place for a couple of nights. So I’ll have time to post some pictures and update you all.
Leaving Michigan. Entering Canada.
Two short videos shot Monday, October 11th: leaving Charlie Cheney’s place in Fremont, Michigan, and crossing the huge bridge over the St. Clair River from Port Huron, Michigan to Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.
Sunday in Michigan: The Playground and Garden
Today we had a day off from driving. We were kindly hosted by Charlie Cheney and his family in Fremont. Charlie is the creator of Indie Band Manager.
First thing we did this Sunday morning was attend the local meeting at the Kingdom Hall. We met a lot of very friendly people who wondered if we were just visiting or moving in. Fiona made friends with some little girls about her age.
I then took Fiona to the playground at the local elementary school. She was able to play with other little kids and we had a lot of fun. She did say the maze was too easy. Later Charlie took us to where he grew his garden this year and also we drove up to Echo Camp.
Enjoy our pictures!
