All's quiet on the home front.



Cara: "Hey Mom, I am hanging out at one of your favorite place in Detroit. It not to hot today so I figured I head over to Belle Isle Park. Hold on there are some Biker passing by."


Mrs. Dotson: "Hey, I thought you would be back by now. It seems like forever since me and your father seen you. Honey,  you travel to much. How in the world does Curtis deal with that?"

 

Cara: " Hey just does Mom. He understand the nature of the beast and that is what I do. I over by the casino, your favorite spot."


Mrs. Dotson: "Don't change the subject. You travel more than me and your father when we worked for Mattel. I'm just saying you have to find time to enjoy life and smell the roses Cara. No man is his own island. Hold on for a minute, I'm making me a wonderful cup of peach tea."

Cara: "We are fine Mom. I'm going to be seeing him real soon. Unlike back in the day, we have internet and Skype we can always see and talk to each other. What up anyway?  How's Dad."


Mrs. Dotson: "We won't even talk about him."
Cara: "Oh, he's running things?"


Mrs. Dotson: "Yes, if that what you call it, hee, hee. We have the grandkids over and right now all is quiet on the home front."

Cara: "What??  I'm surprise usually Beauty barking all over the place. Especially with Tommy and Nikki being together."


Mrs. Dotson: "We won't even talk about her either."


Cara: "Dang, there is a long line at the aquarium. I wanted to go in there before I headed over to the flower conservatory.  How did you end up with the kids?"

Mrs. Dotson: "Alan and Madison slowed down enough from work to take a couple of days off.  You know something you should be doing."

Cara: "I  will, I will. When I do, just so know I will be with Curtis most of the time."
Mrs. Dotson: "Promises, promises."


Cara. At least the Belle Isle Flower Conservatory is not crowded yet. I can see why you and dad got married here. It's just gorgeous. I hope the city can hold on to all it assets. It would be a shame sell it off and then privatize it, all for the mighty dollar."

 
Mrs. Dotson: "Make sure you take a picture for your dad please, he will be so tickled to see all the gorgeous flowers. I do believe that what started all his gardening. I found that spot when I was doing a photo shoot, I can't remember which campaign right now but it was perfect and I feel in love with it. I knew it was the perfect place to get married."


Cara; "It really is.  I love the pond. I will have to take a few pics and email them to dad. You know what that is what I will do. Well I won't keep you any longer. I know if everyone is down for the count your going to enjoy it."

Mrs. Dotson: " You got that right. I will talk with you soon. Be safe Cara, I love you. Remember what I said. You need to take time and smell the roses and stop all that traveling."


Cara: "I will Mom. I'm won't keep you any longer. Tell Dad I said hello and give my nieces and nephew a kiss for me. I love you."





With all the bad press Detroit is getting, I will share some of the great places to visit.  I do miss my family, favorite hangouts and great places to eat but I don't miss the snow. lol 

Have a great week everybody!

  2. At least with Cara traveling, she's still making an effort to actually see the places she visits. It's not like she's working the entire time. But I'm sure Curtis and her family do miss her.

  3. I think the kids are "dogging" Beauty! She is going to need a few days of peace and quiet! Maybe a doggie retreat! I like seeing Detroit too! I have never been. It said that so many city are selling off their landmarks for need capital.

    1. Beauty is very good with small kids but Tommy and Nikki well that a different thing. They have a lot of energy and I think Beauty, being a show dogs tries to contain them too. They can be all over place.

    1. Belle is truly a gem in Detroit! It's a great summertime hangout, you just bring your picnic basket and a blanket, pic a spot and chill the rest of the day. On a good day you can walk around, talk with people, get some of their bbq and do it all over again in another spot! We won't even talk about the entertainment you can witness.

  5. Living in Michigan, I can commiserate, the snow sucks... and yes, Detroit does have some lovely places. It would really be wonderful if they could clean up the entire town... it could be so nice!

    1. I really do want it turn around. The news just puts out the bad, but there are a lot of cities struggling too. Quiet as kept there is another story brewing in the city on how this "investor" want turn a prime location into a entertainment hud but it will displaced the jails and the courts? I'm looking into it.
