Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park - II

Frederik Meijers Gardens
Dear friends and readers, let’s start our journey into the Sculpture Park.
We were adviced to take the “Park Train” driven by seniors who not only love but as well know art.
Very good guide we had.
All the Photos that follows are taken from the “train”.
The Parks is so large and with so many objects it is a great way to have an overview and then go back to the Sculptures you like the most.
S1 - Horse - wood 
Horse made from wreck wood found in a River
S3 Neuron Scuplture S2 - Neuron text
Neuron – made from stainless Steel – Click on the right photo to learn more
S4 - Just wood
Just Wood – but dancing – love this simple creativity and fantasy
S5 garden Tool
Wow, what is this? A secret Kitchen Garden. How great;-)
s6 - red and great 
Some people  on the “train” said this sculpture reminded them of a Kindergarden. What do you think?
s7 Spider in the woods 
See the Giant Spider? It’s safe it is fenced in;-)
s8 - Headless 
They are headless – we have learned they put their heads down in the Sand when frightened – but here in the Michigan Forests?
s9 Yellow
Yellow Fantasy – Happy Sculpture 
S91 Listening to History Sculpture s91 Listening to History Text
Listening to History. Who owns the Truth? Click on the photo up right to see the name of the Artist.
S92 - siiting down
Just sitting down and relaxing in the Nature
S93 Head etc in iron
Halloween in Iron or an alien? Go to Frederik Meijer Gardens to find out;-)
S94 Bridge
Suddenly a Red Rock Bridge - - -
s95 Air sculptures
On the Hill…
s96 Airy sculptures
… streching and dancing towards the Sky
It was an overwhelming tour and papa needed some rest;-)

In my next post I will show you the most amazing sculpture, so stay tuned…

Why American men should boycott American women

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.


BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again.

Buy now for just $9.99:
