Diarrhea and the Motor City

Attendees of the convention (nope, this is not a vacation I'm on!) went on a special tour of the Ford Factory...As an angry owner of a Ford, I was looking all around the place for the comment box...I need to get my list of complaints to the big cheese!
[sigh] I didn't find one...


Instead, as revenge for the shitty Ford I have, I snapped a photo on the sly of the assembly line. Photo taking was prohibited...Rules were meant to be broken, and they owed me this photo...

Next, we went to Greenfield Village, a weird town-museum thingy that Henry Ford built back in the 1930s...what a narcissist...its all the restored houses and businesses from his childhood, and other people and places...
We got to ride in a horse-drawn carriage. These horses are named Marco and Max.
Max almost confused my finger with a carrot. That strange lady in the photo was talking to them like Mr. Ed...some people are sooo weird...


I had an offical Poop Moment, Goofy-ass Stacy will appreciate...It was so cold out, so after the Greenfield tour, they gave us hot apple cider...I had two cups, it was so delish...

We get to the Henry Ford Museum. They had all these special food stations set up, with "whore-dervs"...All of a sudden, I feel it...A case of the runs at the Henry Ford Museum...oh, great...
The food was good, I had plenty of room after two rounds of the runs! The kind where you get out of the stall, and do a 360 back in...

An amusing 1930s singing quartet...

ahhh Mel...horses, illegal photos and crap stories all in one post. I can just call it a day and go back to bed now i think.

my Mum has the strangest love for Fords. I can understand the love of Ford trucks, they make good trucks. But I just don't get the hype over their cars. First she had a mustang(a really old one with the puffy roof deal) then an LTD (sweet hey?) then a Tempo, which i successfully wrote off, and then an escort...(when i'd make fun of it she'd say....but it has a MAZDA engine. like THIS is supposed to impress me. it also explained why the engine was great but things like her lights and stereo would get recalled and her windows would barely roll and the wipers pretty much sucked too) I hated this car,and years later she gave to me free and I bagged on relentlessly delivering pizzas in...now she has a ford Minivan.

I also drive a crappy ass Ford. As soon as I can afford it, I'm getting a new Passat. I can taste it I want one so badly.

Thanks for the poop shout out. It's always nice to know that I'm thought about, even if it is when you're sitting on the shitter. ;-)

LOL! OMG! This reminds me of my trip to Las Vegas. I snapped pictures of everything, whether I was supposed to or not. Spent my entire second day there traveling from one casino rest room to the next. Oh, and the food there, superb.
