The Real Story

Hi readers! This is a picture of Mark Durfee (the walking man), dear friend, student from many moons ago, and great poet of Detroit. In this picture, he's enjoying a coney dog because it's National Hot Dog Month in Detroit. I'm guessing Mark might order this anyway, but still. It is really National Hot Dog Month, whatever that means. National Coney Island is what Detroiters have in the way of local cuisine. Thanks for lunch, Mark! When I was taking this picture, some dude asked if I worked for Real Detroit. I said, I'm real and this is Detroit so there you have it. Mark said, She's my publicist and that's the real story. Hope you're having a great Friday!

I don't know about the movie recommendation. I thought the setting was Ann Arbor? At least it is in Baxter's book. Seattle's too far away from Detroit.

On another note, that Walking Man sure does get around.

At least it's not a post office shot,Michelle's photo on the other hand...

It is paramount for all of Detroit's hot dogs to get out in July. Go Team!! Pig snouts, chicken lips and toe nail clippings should be a staple of every diet.
