Smugglers Cove continues to intrigue us. First the driveway area was redone. Then picnic tables suddenly appeared. Shortly thereafter the possibility of food trucks that had been floating about locally for a few days became a reality and since then a treasure trove of trucks have been delivering the eats with some making regular appearances much to the delight of the citizenry.
And now after pouring a cement slab, a structure has appeared.
Folks are abuzz as speculations regarding the possibility of the latest culinary incarnation at the Hess Lake Eatery site becoming a near future reality have caused theorists to thrive on social media as well as in other social (distanced of course) settings.
Well done folks. Carry on and keep us guessing The ongoing mystery has helped create a little diversion to this part of the world...a rare and valuable commodity these days.
Tuesday is the Primary Election.
For pity’s sake vote.
Particularly those of you who find it necessary to share any and all of your personal opinions on social media because if you do that and don’t vote your words have even less credibility than they did before.
Vote because it’s the right thing to do. Because it matters. You might think one vote doesn’t matter but it does. It matters because in casting your ballot you show how much this country truly means to you
Vote because you care. And care enough to pay a little attention to who and what you’re voting for. If you haven’t had time to do the research ask someone you trust about the issue and/or candidates.You don’t have to follow their opinion, but listen to it and make up your own mind.
Vote because you want to tell your children and grandchildren that you did and let them know what a valuable possession a vote is.
We at N3 World Headquarters love farmers markets so it has been a delight to see the Newaygo FM getting the Friday afternoon action in Brooks Park. It’s a pleasant way to spend a summer day in an inviting setting. From meats to peaches to tomatoes to soap to even a barn quilt, each week has resulted in a few items heading back to N3WH.
But as I said we really like farm markets and thus, tend to be less than faithful to any particular venue.
The Muskegon Farmers Market is sprawling and Saturday a visit there proved to be a pleasant diversion on a gorgeous and barely August morning. The usual collection of musicians and other sidewalk entertainers weren’t out and about at the time we were there and I’m not sure how much of the extra curricular activity that always seems to surround the market will be experienced during this oddest of all years we find ourselves in.
But over near Carmen’s Cafe (our first time back to a Muskegon favorite) a vehicle that looked to be a one time fire truck provided ample entertainment in and of itself. We were particularly intrigued by the model of a T-Rex devouring a smaller member of his species in the center of the hood with an angel in the foreground.
And if you want to view something that is close to drop dead guaranteed to bring a good chuckle check out a youtube video called “News Anchor Loses It." You won’t be disappointed.
Be well, good readers. Stay in touch, treat each other with kindness and…
For the love of liberty, vote.
