Okay Rich would like to add:
Consumers (where Dunhams was..it's a shoe store for now)
Ben Franklin (next to Dentons.. where the the Secretary of State is)
Tastee Freeze (Where Dans Donuts is)
Vachois (Sp?) where Sefa's is-was
A & W Drive In (Where Red Apple is)
How about Grape Ape Video Escape? or the Grand Illusion?
McPherson State Bank.. the first drive thru bank in Howell was over where Work First is now..off of Lucy Rd.
The Lakeside Bar..(where J.J.'s was. Right up the street from where Rich grew up on Meadowview)
When there was NO McDonalds instead of 30 or whatever we have now.

I have a 1975 Livingston County phone book that we got a hold of... it's a riot for both of us. I lived in Brighton from 1975-1985 and came back in 1991 so I remember some of that stuff. We've talked about the Strohs at the Brighton Mall and we actually met camped out to get tickets at the Music Box over there. I got some clothes at Pixieland and Rich was a model for Pomeroys.
The weird thing was that he never came out to Brighton and we never went any farther than Rollerama (although I usually skated at Lakeview).It seemed so far to go to Howell. I remember when the Brighton Meijer was built and it was so small!
It's cool to have all those cool things to remember!

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
