Ann Arbor, MI
My rental this week is a 2015 Tahoe LTZ with 5 miles on the odometer. Interestingly enough, it is the same car and color as the Michigan State Police, which makes for a fun time on the highway…

Camero: A Hate Story 

About every 6 months or so, I like to rent one of these stupid cars. I do so in hopes that it’ll trigger some sort of mid life crisis, maybe. Now that I can actually afford one, maybe, I’ll relive my youth and regain some sense of recklessness. All it actually does is make my claustrophobic.

A fitting description…

I came across, what seems to me, a fitting description for my chosen lifestyle:

”The peculiar dignity of men seen eating alone in restaurants on national holidays”

Stanley Elkin

330 W 42 St NYC

Another fascinating building I was fortunate to see today. Formerly the McGraw Hill Building, this Art Deco masterpiece was designed by American architect, Raymond Hill. 

 Born in Pawtucket RI (yes, Family Guy) Raymond Hill was the quintessential designer of Neo-Gothic and Art Deco building. And I quote, “By the end of his career, Raymond Hood was designing buildings so modern that they foretold the International Style.” For my Chicago people, he also designed the Tribune Tower.

Front entrance to 330 W 42nd

Walking into the lobby, one can almost imagine it in the 30’s - men in fedoras, smoking in the elevator, 3 martini lunches…the good old days.

The Flu

You know what’s worse than the flu? Having the flu on the road. But, the good people at Hilton have accommodated me with water, tea and soup. Taking a bite out of the Big Apple will have to wait….

Til tomorrow - I’m about a block from the Soup Nazi and feel some Mulligatawny will stand me right up.
