Bill finds a kindred spirit
who also has white hair on his face
in Bonita's dog!

Choisser Street in Eldorado, Illinois. - Note that Larry is not the only one on this trip - to get photographed in front of arches! Bill and his college buddy Bill Rauwolf - in front of Bill Rauwolf's house in Mattoon, Illinois. Bill and Bill. Larry with Bill. We're now in Michigan! This is John Shepherd. - We will be vacationing with him and - his partner John Litrenta for several days.
Kicking back with coffee, our first morning at John and John's. John and John welcomed us with a big breakfast. - Here we are with John Litrenta. The main room of their house has large south-facing windows - so the room is very bright. We intended our first day to be one of relaxation - after nine days on the road. - Bill is following the plan! On the morning of our first day traveling with John and John - we come to the Mackinac Bridge which - connects the two peninsulas of Michigan.
We take a break to check out the bridge. - We still haven't crossed it; this is taken from the south side. It was 90 degrees out, so we didn't feel like getting - very close to each other for these photos! Could John be telling us why people - on that side call people on this side 'trolls'? - (Because they live under the bridge!) Crossing the Mackinac Bridge going north. - (They pronounce it Mackinaw, by the way.) Two things you gotta eat if you go to - the Upper Peninsula are smoked fish and pasties. - We first stopped at a country store to attack this fish.
