We chose a Chrysler 300 from the Emerald Aisle and drove across the river to Ohio where we stopped to get distilled water for Ted's CPAP machine and saw 12 Tesla charging stations in the parking lot. A glimpse into the future I suppose.
We eventually made it to Karen's.
On Saturday we went to Gabe's, a Ross type store, and ran into Karen's grandson and his wife. They were just coming from a funeral and took the opportunity to shop this store since they live north of the city. I bought a couple tops, gave them hugs, and we went home. Church was at 5:00 and afterwards we went to a German restaurant that normally has great food. After an hour's wait for a table we were served the worst meal I have had in ages! Ted and Karen both sent stuff back and I just answered "no" when the waitress asked me if it was good. Oh well, it is only one meal out of thousands I will eat in my lifetime!
Donna picked me up on Sunday and we made our way to our old high school. We met up with 40 of the remaining 200 or so classmates who graduated in the Class of 1963. What a fun time! We had lunch, toured all the buildings and were allowed to use the marble stairs, a BIG no-no all those years ago. Here we all are sitting on the marble stairs. I am far left, top row because I am still able to climb, sit down and get up!

After four hours Donna dropped me off. Cindy, Karen's daughter and her husband, had arrived and we got in a short visit before we left to see Ted's family. We had a great meal with Peg, Dave and Dan. When we returned to Peg's, Kevin and Barb joined us for Graeter's ice cream for dessert. After a few hours we all headed home. What a great day of seeing friends and family!
