I thought I would take a little halftime walk around the neighborhood and snap a few photos for you because it’s such a beautiful day here in the Land of Oz. And Michigan is doing well enough against Notre Dame that I don’t think I’ll jinx anything by wandering away for a few minutes.
So, my street deadends at Oz Park. I’ve already shown you a bit of the park, including Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and the playground. It’s a lovely park.The street is quite nice, too. If I squint, I think it looks a bit like Paris. We live on the east side of the street, mostly condos and townhouses, and then the west side of the street has more single family detached homes with alarming price tags.
Then, at the other end of the street is a busy intersection with lots of interesting shops, restaurants and hospital buildings. This particular property, of course, is not improving the neighborhood substantially. This is John Barleycorn’s Pub and somehow a rogue group of insurrectionists have set up shop there. Every Fall Saturday, it’s a real scene.
