Frances and I visited our dearest friends, Annette and Ralph Stento, in Detroit. We visited The Henry Ford and attended the second game of the 2012 season for the RedSox at Detroit. Got to say that we had a great time at The Henry Ford. Excellent museum of Americana….. They also have a tour of the Rouge. The Rouge is the factory Henry Ford built which at one time employed 100,000 people. Today it has a state of the art plant that manufactures Ford F-150 trucks. It is amazing how those trucks are being put together. Frances found the perfect color car for her:
The next day we attended the baseball game at Comerica Park for the second game of the season for the Boston RedSox.
This was a very painful game to watch. As a team, the RedSox did not show up to play and I was surrounded by Tiger fans! We were seated on the sixth row next to the Tigers dugout. Excellent seats thanks to the efforts of the Stentos to get us tickets. But, there was no reason to cheer on my team as they stunk! We lost 0-10. On the other hand, the Tigers are poised to have a great season.
Outside the miserable loss in the baseball game, we had a great time and were very happy to spend time with our friends in a new place.
