Blog to return on topic later this week...Just flew back from a long weekend in Grand Rapids Michigan, home of Gerald Ford and known once for its furniture, more lately for its Amway.....a corporate entity that seems to own the majority of the town or, at least, have its name on many of its edifices. What isn't named after Ford (airport, major highways, etc., etc.) seems to be the province of Amway (including the hotel in which we stayed and were feted at a family wedding for one of the Szabo clan nieces).
The so-called rapids are pictured to the left. Apparently, when the weather turns wet, the water rises and, indeed, it flows very rapidly and has been known to flood both sides of downtown. Mercifully, while overcast, there was no rain while we were there.
This first and likely only trip to Grand Rapids was fun, but it's now time to get back to the work of beading and blogging about it.
There is news on the show front.....stay tuned!
This blog is where Thea Fine, Beading Design meets Fine WordCrafters (my writing/editing activities). I hope you find it a happy collision of my two artful worlds.
