Sunday afternoon my parents were riding their motorcycle on M-55 near Cadillac when a car pulled out in front of them. They were unable to avoid colliding with the car. They were both taken to the hospital in Traverse City Sunday night and are expected to be okay, although my dad is in worse shape than my mom. My mom will probably be released from the hospital tomorrow.
I was spending the holiday weekend in Philadelphia when I got the call from one of my sisters and I've been unable to think about much else since then -- especially since I'm so far away and I wouldn't be able to do anything if I was there -- but seeing this picture of the bike in the weeds being photographed by a state trooper was a bit more shocking than I expected.
