On our way to Grand Rapids, Michigan, Ruth and I checked out the Route 66 Museum in Pontiac, Illinois. One of its better attractions is Bob Waldmire’s beyond eccentric 1966 school bus. Dreamer-artist-mapmaker Bob was historic 66’s biggest fan and spent his life traveling it.
Ruth and I went to in Grand Rapids to see if the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum lives up to its hype-“America’s most entertaining presidential museum”. It’s not. This is our 4th pm this year. The other three honored Reagan, FDR, and Nixon. There are 13 officially recognized presidential library/ museums in all, and we have only 4 to go-Clinton, Carter, Bush, and Bush.
We’re also here in Michigan to eat as many Traverse City cherries as we possibly can.
