After saying my goodbyes to my co-workers and riding Scarlett back to Batavia to retrieve Milli the URV and the trailer, we then moved east on US94 towards Brownstown, Michigan.
The drive was quite boring and I found Michigan's roads to be in quite the bad condition. The trailer made quite the racket as it encountered holes/patches and cracks on the highway and surface streets!
Hard to believe, but it was worse than the streets in Illinois!
Still I got to my sister-in-law's place with no real issues and got fed a late dinner and we stayed up late chatting and catching up with both her and her husband Andy along with my nephew Greg.
Monday was work most of the day though I did take a ride during lunch to introduce Laura, my SIL, to the joys of being a monkey in the sidecar. We rode a short distance to the township of Grosse Ile which is an island on the Detroit River.
Canada is visible from the eastern shore of Grosse Ile and Laura told me that rum-runners used to sneak booze from Canada into the US along this part of the border!

Monday evening after a sumptuous dinner, I rode with Greg, their son to a violin/music recital. Greg has grown to be taller than his father, I remember as a small boy, playing with my two sons.....
Last, in terms of High School.....who knows what the future holds
Andy, Greg and Laura
After the recital, Greg and I rode home in Scarlett once more. It was lightly raining at times but no big deal.
