51. I had an aunt and uncle in Battle Creek, both long since passed.
She was a grade school teacher and he was the manager of a large photographic and electronic store and studio that took pictures of Kellogg's and Post cereals for magazines.

B.C. seems like a nice prosperous place back in the '60s and early '70s, but then, so did Michigan.

I grew up 40 miles north of Muskegon, which is an empty shell. My little tourist and agriculture area (where my Mom lives) and Fremont (where my bachelor uncle lives) haven't been hurt that much. There were fewer tourists this year, but generally enough, and prices for fruit, vegetables and baby food are good.

I just so much want Michigan to come back. I talk up U.S. make cars here in D.C.--everyone seems to like my gently used Taurus and are startled by the low price that I paid for it compared to Camrys and Accords--but I don't seem to be having much luck. Many people here are originally from places where there are no Fords or GMs, let alone Chryslers and have no interest in them.
