We saw that Cheech and Chong were coming to Soaring Eagle Casino in Mount Pleasant, MI on a billboard along Michigans I-75 on the way to our Bay City, MI Date weekend (earlier posting). David LOVES Cheech and Chong, he plays their YouTube videos to me all the time, and quotes them in – so he bought tickets and booked a room for us immediately. Turns out it was a sold out concert. I have watch many clips, but was not sure what to expect – were they going to sit and tell stories, show movies and talk about it, just sit and smoke, lol. Actually, it was a delightful variety show with acted out scenes from their classic movies, stories from their personal lives, dancing, music… it was a pleasure to watch this ~1.5hour show. Did you know Cheech was signed by Motown and was in Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers. Apparently both have a long time connection to Michigan, so I was not surprised they came to town (well outskirts of town). After the concert they announced, we could pay $150 for a personal picture and time with both Cheech and Chong, but we opted out of that experience. Another wonder weekend with my husband.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c) View more posts
