Today at lunch I was sitting by the fountain eating the porky cheesey sandwich I purchased from the Roaming Fork food truck. I love the porky cheesey sandwich. It is a grilled sandwich that consists of pulled pork and barbecue sauce. It's perfect. After wolfing down the sandwich I took a few shots of the back of the library and the fountain.

Most pathetic end to a baseball game I've seen in a long time. Valverde makes me want to rip my eyes out #BoycottPotatoeHead— Jacob Linklater (@J_LINKscribes) June 12, 2013
I put a Jose Valverde poster on my door and now it won't close!— Cole Lopez (@ColeLopez77) June 12, 2013
Jose Valverde couldn't save a pdf file to his desktop— Fake SportsCenter (@FakeSportsCentr) June 12, 2013
It's over Papa...Tigers need a closer, sorry but Valverde is done...can't recover from this one— Jim Brandstatter (@brandymancan) June 12, 2013
The fact that Jose Valverde continues to close games for the Tigers should be a human rights violation.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) June 12, 2013
I agree! RT @tigstown: Good result, bad result, doesn't matter. Tigers can't win a World Series with Jose Valverde as closer. End of story— Sam Webb (@SamWebb77) June 12, 2013
Valverde blows another one. #tigers— lj (@ljpring) June 12, 2013
Can't take it anymore. Valverde is atrocious. Get him out of this organization.— Jacob Babbitt (@Jacob_Babbitt) June 12, 2013

This is a little harsh, sir. It's only a game.
If valverde took a line drive to the face and died on impact, I'm not going to lie I would smile.— Ben Kleiman (@BK_BenKleiman) June 12, 2013

Here are a few choice shots in no particular order. The dates I have come from a stamp on each slide. I assume the stamp means the date the film was processed and not the date the picture was taken.
Exuberance from September 1959.
A June 1959 picnic with old cans of Budweiser and Lays chips.
A vacationer descending the stairway at the Chippewa Hotel in July 1964.
The same lady in her bathing suit on Mackinac Island. July 64.
July 1964, Mackinac Island street scene
Grilling in August 1959

This picture I scanned from Kodak Disc film negatives and the resolution on this picture is terrible. The negative is only 8mm by 11mm wide. I see where they were going with this. I'm surprised that since Kodak was so into miniaturization with their film in the early 80s that they would be so resistant to digital photography when it came along.

But, what really surprised me while I was browsing the website Hit Tracker is that the longest home run hit by a Tiger this year was this 463 foot shot hit by 37 year old Torii Hunter. Lord knows why the MLB website will allow me to embed one video and not the other. Who knows why MLB does anything sometimes (see their blackout rules).
