Camping Out in the Cold? Just say Wii!

We stopped by Target on the way home to return something (and look for something to buy that we really didn' need) when we came aross these dedicated souls waiting to get their hands on the Nintendo Wii set to come out Sunday. I heard on the radio that Nintendo was able to produce enough units to meet most demands. I'm guessing that Genessee county is not going to be one of those hot spots that will run out. But what do I know, anyway.

The Wii seems like a pretty nifty little unit. I haven't purchased a new gaming console in quite some time, but if I were to count up my pennies and go out to purchase one today, I'm thinking the Wii would be the way to go. The system has an interesting new interactive remote control that is designed to make you 'feel' like you're a part of the game. But, they have 'retro' controllers that are available as well. That's nice. Plus, Wii is backward-compatible with older Nintendo system games. You can even but all of the classics, now available on DVD.

So, we'll see how the Wii frenzy pans out today. I hope they leave one for me!!

Walking through the Bronner's Christmas Tree Forest

Spending time in Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland is always a good time. Jennie and I have never been here as a couple (as best we can remember.) The store is a good primer for the upcoming holiday season. I think I am offically in the Christmas mood!

We decided to take our impromptu Frankenmuth trip after spending some time at Birch Run.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like....

One Word to Describe (and it's NOT Wolf!)

I have been officially scared by a store. If you'd have asked me before yesterday whether this was possible, I would have answered with a resounding NO! But this business located at an outlet mall has everything...literally! From trains, to lighthouses, to dragons and wolves. This store is really your one-stop shop for everything, um........
tacky. Take this 3D bust of a wolf on a dark-green velvet-matted frame! Only $299

If you'd like the address, please contact me.
