Saturday, August 2 — One of the things we most looked forward to while being Out There was visiting friends and family members along our route. Two such friends we wanted to see are here in northeast Ohio.
Kim C and I met in 2000 when my company became part of Compaq; we became fast friends and have enjoyed our friendship ever since. Jerry A and I met back in 2008 and we get together as we can.
Tonight we planned to go picnic and enjoy the Cleveland Orchestra playing Rachmaninoff at the Blossom Music Center right here in Cuyahoga Valley National Park – what a unique way to enjoy a national park, right? Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate so we went to Plan B. The two of them met us here at Charley so they could each see our new ride and our new lifestyle, then we were going to all go out to dinner. Well, plans changed again! We never went to dinner, cocktailing and noshing here instead all evening long. It was truly a treat catching up with both friends, and we are so glad we got the chance to hang out and visit for the evening.
P.S. Like my new haircut? It’s really short!
