A trip to Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum

If you’re ever in the neighborhood of 14 mile and Orchard Lake, check out Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum.  It’s a blast.  MMMM0

Here are just a few photos of the wonderful stuff inside.

MMMM1Put in a quarter or two, and you can watch such things as bodies descending into Hell.

MMMM3MMMM2

Once in Hell, the devils are eating and playing pool.

MMMM4You can watch victims being tortured during the Spanish Inquisition.

MMMM5

Skeletons being chased by a dog.

MMMM6MMMM7

Even if you don’t put quarters in the marvelous mechanical machines, just looking at all the stuff on the walls will keep you busy for a very long time.  Truly an amazing place!

Where I stood, cursing the mulberry tree

We have a mulberry tree in the back yard, one that doesn’t produce berries (unlike the one in our front yard), but it produces seed in the spring.

This spring it has produced lots of seed.  We have swept it up a several times, sure it could produce no more, and then a wind comes along and the parking spaces and lawn furniture are again covered in the stuff.

It is nice having shade, it is a very good tree, so I’ll stop complaining.  It will be nice to sit outside again without first having to clean everything off, though.  I’m sure it will be soon.
