“I moved from Michigan to Florida this January for work. People said “Florida in the winter….wow, you’re lucky” and “you got a job in this economy, man, you’re lucky”. Well let me tell you something my Michigan friends….you can take a man out of Flint, but you’ll never take the Flintstone out of the Man. Give me one excuse to leave this this oceanside resort for a reunion with the best people in the world, my Michigander soul people, and I won’t be taking Interstate 75 south again. This Michigan Man is ready to find a way to join all the spirited people celebrating our nations birth with some Great Times in the Great Lakes…..and I thank you absolutemichigan.com for bringing me home!!! Say Yeah to Rothbury, the best music line up of the year….Say Yes to Me in M!ch!gan!!!”
