Allen, Michigan Invited Me To Play In The Snow
I was born in Michigan.
And like The President, I need to prove that I was born in Michigan and not Kenya.
I sent a request to the Michigan Department of Vital Records (I’m sure they have plenty of Non-Vital Records too.) But because they neglected to ask on the form, I didn’t send any official identification to prove that I was in fact who I think I might be.
The Michigan Department of Vital Records sent me a nice letter asking if I please could fax (!) a photocopy of something official… which I did.
I called today to see that I was in the system, and while I was on hold, the dulcet tones of Tim Allen invited me to play in the snow of Pure Michigan.
Tim Allen was born in Michigan.
The Department of Vital Records “music on hold” was this commercial…
I was born in Allen, Michigan. I like Tim Allen. I like the Sarah Dippity of this post.
There is plenty of snow in Michigan. Some people are still posting photos of the ice and snow beauty of Ultra Northern Michigan.
Me? I wouldn’t go near the snow.
Unless Tim Allen paid me.
I have some clients who chose to live in Michgan for their retirement. They had no family there; they just loved it – even with all the snow. Sensible people move further south, or even out of the country.
So true: Amazing to me that people actually prefer to live in AK or MI. It is beautiful and being retired means you don’t HAVE to go out in the grey slush. But I do prefer to avoid the heat rather than the cold.
