Dance Hall Days, Love

Thanks to Past Perfect, historic preservation consultants, I tracked down the above article, written during the construction of the little bungalow in 1910 and published in the local paper. This article confirms that the little bungie is not a kit house, but rather constructed and planned by a local builder.

While this is very cool, perhaps what is most cool is the description of the second floor, "...the second story is left entire, to be used as a gymnasium, dance hall, or anything else that the owners may desire." Take your baby by the hand indeed!

Imported From Detroit

So, it's not often that this Joo speaks of football or cars, but a car company aired a commercial during the Bowl of Supers that deserves kudos. Chrysler's homage to the D, as these Joos affectionately refer to Detroit, made this Joo all shivery.

Those who know these Joos know that the Joos love Detroit in all its squalor, which is why they have chosen the D for the first annual Jooapalooza next weekend.

So, bravo Chrysler! Detroit needed the publicity (and you probably did too).

The brainchild of Joos' Addiction (to hardware), the first annual Jooapalooza is scheduled for next weekend. Jooapalooza attendees can expect a tour of Pewabic Pottery in Detroit, shopping for hardware for the little bungie that could, and much, much more. Sorry, folks. Jooapalooza is open to nursing Joos and their nursing babies only. And, yes, I'm still nursing M. STOP ASKING ME THAT. WHY IS EVERYONE SO OBSESSED WITH MY BOOBS?
