    Make sure you play some funky keyboards while you're home, Ralph. It looks like the party going to be great. Have a safe trip and enjoy.

  11. #11
    Thanks Chris. I'll see what pops up.

  12. #12
    Ralph are you going to go by your old High School?

  13. #13
    I'm going to try, Marv. I went to two high schools. Cass Tech and Henry Ford. I went by both of them the last time I was home.

    if you're going back to detroit,where have you been living?all this time i thought thats where you were!

  15. #15
    Ralph, they built something like an annex to Cass sitting behind the old high school. They are spending something like $30 million to renovate my old high school down in Toledo. Things will not be like they use to. Well I am sure you have your own personal neighborhood haunts. Just enjoy yourself and maybe take a few pictures?

    I have been living in Monterey, California for the past 32 years. I still consider Detroit my home though.

    I'll be taking pictures.

    you're going to need a coat ralph!

  18. #18
    I just talked with my son-in-law and he told me it was 75 degrees. Believe me, Jesse and I want weather where coats are needed. We want to experience real midwest fall weather.

  19. #19
    Haha I'm sure you know from experience that you might want to book it before winter though Ralph.

  20. #20
    We get snow and it gets cold here in New York, but not like in Michigan. Darn it, I am getting home sick now LOL! Tell 'em Ralph, we grew up in the cold! hehehehehehehe.........

  21. #21
    The amazing thing there, Marv, is Jesse and I seem to miss it at times. Go figure.

  22. #22
    Jesse is concerned that Detroit will be too warm. She is already talking about re-thinking what she has packed for the trip. I told her to sit tight. It can all change in a heart beat.

  23. #23
    I wish I could make this. Hey Ralph you going to look at the old Tera Shirma building??

  24. #24
    Now I'm really home. And I came back with a case of the flu. Detroit was a blast and seeing some of my old friends at Northern Lights and being able to listen to Dennis Coffey work out was a pure treat. It is good to be home though.

  25. #25
    No I didn't get over to see the TS building. I didn't even get to Motown this time around.

  26. #26
    Ralph, it wasn't even cold yet was it?

  27. #27
    No, marv. The weather was great.

  28. #28
    A little late but here are some highlights...

    The night's celebrities Ralph and the lovely Jesse...

    Being entertained by the always superlative Dennis Coffey...

    While the girls are still falling for sound engineer legend Ed Wolfrum...

    At the Northern Lights bar...

    Where Millivanilli and Dennis strike a pose...

    Meanwhile the SoulfulDetroit.com brain trust [lol] tries to figure out why Lowell's new camera won't flash Ralph and Lowell. [Poor thing probably didn't want to break]. Oh wait. It just flashed.

  29. #29
    Great pics Lowell and thanks for sharing them!!!

  30. #30
    Thanks for posting the pics, Lowell. I'll post some of mine and as soon as I figure out what I'm doing wrong to I'll do just that. I may have to give you a call. Meanwhile, It was good to be able to sit and chat with you about a variety of matters other than the forum's business. I'd like to do that again, sometime.
