I haven’t posted for a bit because we’re not actually “on the road” at the moment. Jim and the Coop dog are in Tucson, holding down the rig, and I’m in Wellington, Ohio, with my Mom. I got here a week ago today. So far Mom and I have:
Gone shopping (Mom got four pairs of slacks and bought me a great chartreuse coat. I love it).
Had lunch at the Oberlin Inn.
Went to church and afterwards went to lunch with friends at Wellington’s “Bread and Brew” (which does not, as Jim once hoped, serve beer. Instead it’s a sandwich and coffee place). Also, Mom’s minister gave a gutsy sermon re: gun violence. Way to go, Reverend Lea. And thanks for lunch, Nancy and Ron.
Trimmed Mom’s hibiscus and cut off a branch I did not intend to trim. Oh well. It will grow back.
Done some genealogy work, with me typing down stories Mom remembers using my “Family Tree Maker” software.
Plus lots of other stuff with more to come. Tomorrow we're going to an orchid show in Cleveland with my brother Bob and SIL Suzie. If we aren't snowed in (avoiding the cold is something else in which we've invested a lot of time.)
