    If he keeps dropping weight, he's going to end up only half grumpy.

    Leah, too cute for words, and the only one who would stand still for the camera.

    The main draw for me was the "Rockstars, Cars and Guitars" exhibit. It was nice to be close to the cars, but the space was too cramped to get many pics. Here are a few. Let's start with a Detroit favourite:

    Great pics Ernie!! Thank you.

    Dave, are those your kids? I didn't know you had such young ones.

    On the last day of my vacation and I sure wish there was a museum like that around here.

    There were other cars in the exhibit, but the illumination consisted of moving spotlights, making photography difficult.

    There was far more than we could see in one day, and I will go back soon.

    Thanks to Dave, Lauren, Jake and Leah, for putting up with me tagging along on your outing. I had lots of fun.

    Nice pics Ernie, thanks.

    Looks like an interesting museum, I'll have to get in to see it next time we're in Detroit.

    Super pics, Ernie! If I'm ever in that part of the woods, I'm definitely going there. And it's so bizarre...Grumpy doesn't look anything like his avatar. :scratch2:

    Thanks. There's lots to see, and the museum shares the grounds with Greenfield Village, filled with historic buildings, vehicles, carousel...
    Yes he does. I photoshopped the pics and put some guy's face in there.:D

    Grumpy is even BIGGER in person than he is in pictures. Trust me on this one. You jackasses would NEVER sass him if you'd see him in person...
