CGMan has thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in Columbus. We hit just about every bookstore to stock up on Buckeye stuff. He will be home for the first couple of games this season and is so ready to let the people on our street know who he’s rooting for. (No, he did not buy the big blowup Brutus the Buckeye, but not for lack of wanting)
We are now in the sweet little town of Van Wert, Ohio, and that’s about 20 miles from Rockford, Ohio where the in-laws will be renewing their vows. This would be the closest hotel. It’s a nice one, though, a Holiday Inn Express with an indoor pool. Not like I’m going swimming or anything. I’ve been
freezing my butt off chilly ever since we landed. It’s only 76 degrees here. That’s 30 degrees cooler than where I’m from and 50 degrees cooler than where CGMan is from! Thank gawd there’s a Walmart every 10 miles in America. There may only be 4 restaurants in this town, but there is a Walmart. I was able to get a couple of sweaters to wear with the maxi-length sundresses I brought to wear. Who knew it would be autumn here already??
Skater is having a good time skating all over “downtown wherever we are”. He’s pretty laid back and can find fun anywhere. He gets that from me. Not that he wasn’t excited already about the two hour road trip from Columbus to the middle of nowhere Ohio, we promised him some more fun on the way back.
Since there is no lounge in this hotel, we will have to make our own Happy Hour. No lie, Walmart had everything for a proper Happy Hour. See? I told you we were good at having fun anywhere!
