That hotel would be a beautiful home--I can almost see it on HGTV.

I wish I could afford it. It would make a lovely theater, with costume shop, restaurant, scene shop and lots and lots of storage. I want it.

The Pond looks much different in the Winter, doesn't it?

I'd do a bed and breakfast but instead of breakfast, it'd be dinner. I'm not a morning person and I don't like cooking breakfast.

It would make a great theatre, too.

Ha! I bought my first condom in mens room of the "Pink Hotel". It was a bar and apartments at the time and was still pink. It was originally the railroad hotel and later a brothel.

The brothel thing was just a rumor, I think.

Martin

..and yes I'm sure the plain old ducks and canadian "honker" geese feel like the poor cousins when the swans arrive. Who wouldn't?

OMG I laughed so hard when I read Martin's fond memory of the Pink Hotel. Your first condom?? What about your second condom??

BTW glad you used a condom. LMAO!

At least I got up with a laugh this AM.

Great pics of Brighton

Martin

Oh I didn't USE that condom LMAO. We were like 13 and rode our BMX bikes into town. We just thought we were cool to have a condom in our wallets. LOL.

Wow, I remember when I was a child living in Brighton, my parents used to go to the Pink Hotel, while it was still a bar. Then in my early 20's, Kelly Services was located there. I thought they were going to tear that building down, but glad to see they haven't.

me and janey could do breakfast! I am SUCH a morning person it makes others gag...cuz i'm so "damned perky" to quote a more than a few that have regretted sharing a hotel room with me....when I have to be somewhere at 10...but I'm up at like 6 am.... they get upset...even when I bring gifts like lots of coffee and donuts...and i am polite enough to wait until 9 to arouse them...
janey and i have thought often of starting a bed and breakfast...

Lisa

You and Janey do breakfast, I'll do dinner and damn guests are on their own for lunch!

Martin

Well there is only like 5 places for lunch on that block alone, that isn't a problem Lis.

we just got back from a weekend in saugatuck where every room had a "theme" ours was tuscany...had books on italy on the shelves, 3 videos in the room, roman holiday, 3 coins in a fountain, and under the tuscan sun...it was way cool... there is a thought... to set it apart..

Martin

Believe it or not Sandi Brighton already has a motel (Ok, not a B&B) with themed rooms. And you guys drove all that way! Silly Sis in Law... ;)

sandi

ok...so i didn't mention the fire places, the jacuzzi for 2, the robes, the bath salts, the stereo with romantic cd's the 2 bottles of wine available in the room, along with breakfast - fruit, yogurt, muffins, coffee, juice, cereal... tea, hot cocoa... without ever leaving the room! what can I say...it was a romantic getaway weekend.. for our 5th anniversary...

Lisa

Brighton vs. Sagutuck. Gee, that's a tough choice!

  • 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. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
