An unusual funny friday

For this edition of ff, I want to share a little story.

One of Craig's customers recently retired from the State of Michigan, Dept. of Transportation. And apparently, because of his many years of service, they wanted to formally recognize him for that. So, what they do here in Michigan, (I don't know if other states do this) they name a rest area for them. So he gets his name on the sign on the highway, and a picture and plaque in side the building. And the rest area he got was just outside of Saugatuck, where we camped over the 4th of July weekend. So, of course I had to stop and get a pic. And here it is.....

And you may wonder, what's so funny about that?

Well, first of all, they had a ceremony, at the rest area, with speakers, refreshments and such. And second, this is a building where people stop on their travels to relieve themselves! Would you call that an honor? Have a plaque with your picture in a building where people go potty? I think that's pretty funny! And while I took the picture, someone came out of the potty, and saw me doing this, and all of a sudden was interested in who the person was! Thought he was someone famous! tee hee. I think I would rather have had a gold watch!

Have a great weekend!


  1. LOL That is funny. So he's one of Craig's customers? Has he discussed it? Like, does he sound proud??? lol

  2. It reminds me of reading that a group in CA is attempting to name a sewerage treatment plant after Dear Leader.
