Lazy Monday before the 4th in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor Town.

T'was the day before the 4th of July and all through Ypsilanti / Ann Arbor,  not a.....Aw, cripes. I can't think of a good rhyme! It was Monday before the 4th...and many folk in Ypsi and Ann Arbor were just totally hanging out enjoying the beautiful day! There we go.

On Monday, the day before the 4th of July, Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti were workin' it, but in a relaxed kind of way. Dig? Over at HopCat on Maynard Street in downtown Ann Arbor, the place was bustling. The kids are out of school and mom and pop took the day off, and by the looks of it, families decided to down some suds and get some grub. No, the kids didn't down the suds, of course! But I think mom and dad did!

Over on the Diag on the central campus of the University of Michigan, folks, young and old, were just hanging out and doing their own thing. Some were skateboarding, some were playing Frisbee, some were reading and a guy named Mitchell Bowling was putting on a heck of a show twirling these, what he called, flower sticks They kinda looked like batons, but with white flower looking things on the ends. Very cool. This guy was twirling these flower sticks like a drum major!

Over in Ypsilanti, residents had the same idea! People were hangin' out relaxing and have a good time in Riverside Park and Sidetrack Bar and Grill in Ypsilanti's Depot Town was packed, particularly, their beautiful outdoor seating areas.

Yes, there is something to be said for staying at home and avoiding that dreadful U.S. 23 mad dash for Up North!
