No 21st floor this time.

Nope. Because we’re staying on the 23rd floor. Great – better’n last time. But the views really are wonderful, the food is delicious, and we had fun spending money last night.

We arrived in Detroit around 3 p.m., and partied until around 10. Fun! Here’s the pictorial:

What's this cool little building remind you of?

The Thriller actually talked about going to the game because the Tigers were playing the White Sox. Um, no.

So today, we eat (yay, it’s free) and see some other sights besides the ones in the casino. We may leave this afternoon for home, or tomorrow morning. It’s good to not have to decide.

Happy Monday!

Fink (and Thriller, hangin’) out.

  1. Hey Wackjob! No, seriously, I feel ya, babe. Did you feel the building swaying a bit when you went to bed?? hehehe.

    Love your pics! The first one reminds me of Time Square, NY!

    I’m so glad that you and the Thriller are having such a grand time! All is well at the homestead. Rousseau is having a great time watching Ray do the yard.

    See you tonight….or tomorrow. It is indeed good to not have to decide!

    Big Hugs!

  2. My comments may have been compendious and articulate – but it also helps to spell your words correctly…….TIMES Square!!! *sigh*

    Mave…gone

  3. That building actually reminds me of The Neverending Story. Is that weird? O.o

    • You mean when they’re in “The Nothing,” or whatever that was called? Can’t remember…that was one of my kids’ favorite movies to watch back in the 80s, but it’s been awhile for my reptilian memory..

      • Actually I was thinking the library or book store he ends up reading in. I haven’t seen it in a while, either.

  4. Wait—WAIT!! I got it!! All you have to do when you get on an airplane now is think: 23rd floor of Greektown Casino/Hotel! If you can do the 23rd floor of a hotel with no balcony & take pics out the window, you CAN DO an airplane!! I’ll even send you my Bose noise-canceling headphones so you can borrow them & “tune out” the noise!

    Check my FB profile – there’s a pic of the golf gang :-) We had a nice Friday dinner with my folks, then some of the golf gang + their parents & my parents all had lunch together Sunday (like 18 of us). Good times :-)

    Of course – as we’re driving back to the airport, Bluvox looks out the window of the Hertz rent-a-car on several occasions & “innocently” poses the question: Do you think there’s any corn in Iowa?

    B to the oomR

    • Re your idea: NOoOoOOOOOOooooOOoOoOOO! At least the chances of my hotel crashing to the ground in flames are *slightly* less than those of an airplane. Gotta go with that, sweety. Or…I can hire an anesthesiologist to travel with me and give me Diprivan, like MJ’s doc did for him. Um, yikes. Not so good, either, eh??

      I saw your FB photo — you guys looked great!

  5. The building in the picture reminds me of greentown. I’m wondering how far off I am…

  6. Partied until 10?????? You party animals, you!!
