When the Rolls Royce folks called and said, “Wouldn’t you like to have a new Phantom for the weekend?” they didn’t have to ask a second time, though we had to negotiate which weekend I’d take her. I could have had that $350,000 car for my high school class reunion, but I thought that might be a bit too ostentatious so I put it off for a week and cooked up a plan to take my pretty blonde and her Dad, Herb, to the Northwest Michigan resort area of Traverse City – Michigan’s Gold Coast. Why is it called the Gold Coast? Because a lot of people with a lot of gold have relocated to these shores along Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay.
