Accosted in Mecosta

We had a great time in Mecosta--a village just slightly bigger than Mt. Misbegot.  One marked (pun intended) difference being live local radio happening there--a phenomenon these days! Mark Ray is responsible for a popular Sunday morning show called Local Talent Round-up. It airs from 8 to 10 am on True Country 106.3 WSCG. Tune in if you get the chance...talent from all over Michigan.

Mark and his wife Alice (who co-ordinates the Mecosta Music on the River concert series) were our hosts,


and completely responsible for our dining at Michigan's renowned "Maxfield's" restaurant, where we feasted on...

VEGETARIAN ALERT! Our vegan friends and PETA members should turn away. 
The next two pictures and accompanying text contain graphic depictions of amphibian carnage.

...Frog Legs!Yummy!and we liked em!
They taste, as you may or may not have heard, like chicken, only with a lighter flavor...not a bit pond-ish!



Yeah, we know...more info than you needed, probably...just keepin' it real for our street cred.

End vegetarian alert

Anyway, we had a lot of fun playing in the park--so much so that Mom and Dad had a hard time getting us into the car afterwards.  A wonderful audience who came out just hours after a prodigious downpour, sat amid very moist grass (hardy folk!), and sang along and laughed a bunch (or was that croaking?)

Here's what we looked like 'way back then...


Next time we appear on the river, it'll be a benefit for amphibian amputees.
