I’m STILL obsessing over the grinding thing. I can’t help it. And I FIRMLY BELIEVE that something needs to be done about this. The only controllable place I can think of is during Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. The parents need to step up and open their mouths. Because I can’t truly believe that I’m the only parent in my area, who has kids doing the Bar Mitzvah circuit, who finds grinding to be unacceptable. If I am…then shame on them. I hope they don’t have their children coming to them next year, announcing their pregnancies. Just sayin’
Also. Because I must be PMS’ing. I’m really pissed about this one budget cut in Michigan. From what I understand, one of the cuts is lawn care alongside the roads.
SERIOUSLY?? And this seems so…trivial. But it’s really not.
OK. Fine. We are in a major economic crisis in Michigan. Everything to do with the automotive industry is worse than suffering. Which is having severe snowball ramifications in every aspect of Michigan living. Let’s call it like it is. For Michigan…this is more like a depression. But does our beautiful state have to LOOK depressed?
Can’t people somehow, find it in their hearts, to take their little push mowers…and do it themselves. Mow the medians.
It’s called PRIDE, people.
Somehow. Through a good deed that you do. Something will happen to pay you back.
An hour out of your busy weekend.
Michigan needs to look attractive.
Because all we have left, in our pitiful state (in more ways than one) is our looks…and tourism.
We rely, during sporty type months, on tourism.
Michigan was blessed with being surrounded by those HOMES…the five great lakes. Because of that, we are a tourist destination. Not a hotspot, exactly. But a family destination.
We want tourist revenue. Say YES to Michigan.
Not I DON’T THINK SO.
So, my fellow Michiganders. Find out. Please. For the sake of our beautiful state. What YOU can do to help. Where you can go, with your mower.
And one day. Our great state will pay it forward.
And Michigan. Will somehow, someway, say THANK YOU.
