This has been a really tough week. But I managed to get through the last 7 days with a smile on my face. The flood and cleanup was awful, but I am grateful for the friends who came to my aid. #selfie #optimistic

Trying to save the pictures damaged in the flood by laying them out on towels in the dining room. Most of them are from Rosie’s first 4 years of life and my courtship with Taylor. #pictures #detroitflood #family

Sorting through the wreckage of the flood. We’ll probably lose about 90% of our stuff. Hoping that my Sgt. Pepper’s album will survive. #flood #detroitflood #detroit #berkleymi #sgtpeppers

The aftermath of the basement flood. We had 2 feet of water. Almost everything is a loss. But the bike will be ok. #flood #detroitflood #detroit #bike
