Feeling the Vibe in Motown :o)

Wow, what a great day today. First and foremost, was meeting Mark. He is such a great guy, and we had an awesome time connecting with him today.

We started out by going and having breakfast and getting caught up on his "plans". You will have to visit him at Stars Like Grains Of Sand in My Pocket to figure out what is up, because I am not spilling any beans here :o)

Then we headed to the Detroit Science Institute for the Star Trek Experience. We did the flight simulator, and that was so much fun, it was in an actual pilot flight simulator, and it was fun to do, and fun to watch as it did its barrel rolls. I am glad to announce there were no girly screams from any of the three of us.

Then, since we had a few hours before our Star Trek Movie IMAX Experience, we headed out in search of a location for some cool amber beverages. We found that location at the Majestic, and had a fabulous afternoon. We chatted and laughed, and got to know Mark. I can confidently say that I have made a new lifelong friend. As Beth said, he is a Peach :o)

Then it was to back to the Science Institute for the IMAX movie - IT WAS AWESOME. It was also so much fun to watch Mark as he experienced the nuances of the new movie to the history of the series. We all loved it.

Then it was off to Mexican Town for an excellent meal.

All in all, a great day with my Wifey and new bud, Mark. We are looking forward to seeing Mark again this morning and going to the Astoria (spelling?) bakery. Then it is down to Monroe to see some old friends.

Hope you are rolling into your weekend with style, I know we are :o)
