Look Out Michigan...We're Moving In!!!!

Big news this week here at the office of the prestious Let Go Journal. Effective next week, we'll be operating from a new headquarters near Detroit Michigan!!! Yep, that's right, Ole Mikey is heading for Mo Town, and to tell you the truth - I can't wait to get there.

I'll be working as a consultant to my old friends at xpedx, Sheridan Books, and possibly Ford Motor Company and I could not; I repeat "COULD NOT" be more excited. I want to thank the good folks at xpedx, for having the confidence to bring me in, expecially during these tough economic times. For those of you who know me and have worked with me in past, I think you know I try on every assignment to do a GREAT JOB, this time I am more determined than ever to make my clients successful. I especially want to thank Bryce Spencer and Dennis Walsh for their confidence in me, and for working so diligently to help me get a contract. As I said before, spending money in this economy is a real leap of faith; and I swear I am going to pull out all the stops to do a great job and make money for my friends and customers.

A side benefit of this opportunity, is the Michigan Summers. Bob Seeger, a cornerstone of Rock and Roll and a native son of Detroit, sang about Michigan summers.....referring to them as the Sweet Sweet Summer Times. After having the opportunity to work there last summer, you know Bob was right! I am currently trying to figure out how to get my motorcycle up there. I think I'll just have it shipped.

I've got a few little issues left to take care of here at the Memphis office; but I think Nance and I can handle them. We put the house up for sale at rock bottom (barely above foreclosure) prices. And Nance has got the joint looking great; If any house sells at all in Cordova, TN. it will be 969 Lycomedes. The price doesn't bother me at all, this is about getting on with the next chapter of our lives - and right now the house could be an anchor if you let it. Other than that, we are going to have my Mom take care of the Schnauzers for a while, while we get settled. We've got to find an apartment - or some kind of place to live - but we are excited about that too.

All in all, we are starting a new chapter of Letting Go. I can't wait to get back to work with my buddies in Michigan!!! The Journey Mobile is packed and will be rolling tomorrow and all weekend on its way to Michigan!!!!

All the best,



  1. Thats great! Now you are only 6 hours away instead of 9.5. Mind if I shoot over and we all go to a Redwings game sometime? And are you going to have your last tennessee meal at Colton's? I heard their steaks are bigger...

  2. Dang Mikey. The man is a cruel mistress. or...

    I'll be by around June 19 or so. I hope you got a houseboat. We can go to East or West Mexican Town. Whichever you have come to prefer by the time we get there.


  3. Congrats Uncle Mike.... This is going to be exciting!

  4. Yeah, that would be better than going to a Lions game. Although, I think a Tiger's game would be good. Has your Dad been to the Tiger's new stadium? Could be an adventure!

  5. Congratulations Mike,

    I wish you and Nancy the very best.

    Mike Kight
