Sep 26, 2009 - One step closer

An offer was made and accepted on the house in Mayfield Hts! That puts us in a very happy and exciting situation. The house in Florida (Dad Morris') will close on Weds, Sep 30th, and our buyer for the Mayfield house wants to close the deal by the end of Oct. Our Realtor says it may get pushed a week or so, but providing everything goes well, we will sign it over to the new owner, just after we "hit the road" (isn't faxing and e-mailing great! we won't have to be here!). We are currently, today, in Dayton, OH for Ohio Eastern Star's Grand...

Sep 16, 2009 - Outing to Ohio

Before I start, let me explain why there are no pictures. Some of you on FaceBook already know this, but for the others, my computer crashed! Kaploot! I lost all our pictures, videos, and Word and Excel documents since the first of the year. You see, I saved everything on disks at the end of the year which I now know is not at all a wise thing to do… I need to do it more often. The good news is the hard drive was still under warranty, so Dell replaced it at no charge and they got it to me the next day. Yea, Dell! Tim and Justin at Radio...

Jul 11, 2009 - We had no idea..

I have loved history since I was a young girl. In fact, I can clearly remember being taught about the Wright Brothers and the events that occured in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Mans first flight left quite an impression on me. With the naivete of youth I just 'assumed' that they made a plane, flew it and that was that. Never once did I think to question why Kitty Hawk. I wasn't curious about if that first flight was all that was necessary to launch man into the heavens or even if the Wright Brothers may have had competition to be first....

Jul 6, 2009 - Driving to Dayton

We spent most of the day driving through rich farmland in Illinois, Indiana and now are resting up in Dayton Ohio (after a great maple frosted donut at TIm Hortons!). Tomorrow we are getting an early start to enjoy the Air Force Museum!

May 28, 2009 - Dayton Ohio

We arrived at Dayton, Ohio and stayed at the Wright Patterson FamCamp until May 28th. We visited with Dennis's sister Barb and her daughters Cheryl and Wendy and their families. Barb and Dennis droved to Michigan for a birthday celebration for Dennis's aunt Mary Lou Hardy and visited with relatives we haven't seen in 40 or more years. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit with Barb and family and we are looking forward to the return trip in two years for the next family reunion.

May 20, 2009 - National Museum of the USAF

Today was a beautiful day - sunny and in the low 80s - to visit the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, OH. We arrived at 10 AM and spent the whole day in the museum - leaving around 4 PM - and didn't see everything. This museum is HUGE! We toured the Early Years and half of World War II before taking a break for lunch in the cafe. After lunch we finished the World War II section. They had a special exhibit devoted to Bob Hope, who was the first person to be made an honorary Veteran. We also took a bus over to the...

NM AZ - Spring 2009

May 14, 2009 - A few more days in Indianapolis and on to Dayton, OH

Monday was a warm sunny day, but we pretty much stayed around camp. Bob took advantage of the campgrounds policy that allowed washing your motor home for a small fee so he kept busy doing that while I sat in the sun and read a book. One of the things Bob has been trying to get done since we left Foley was to have a wheel alignment done on the motor home so when he noticed a Goodyear truck repair shop directly across from the campground he stopped over there to see if they could do it. So on Tuesday morning we were officially homeless for...

May 13, 2009 - Dayton Hamvention

Every year Ham Radio operators from around the world converge on Dayton Ohio to see the latest in Amateur Radio Equipment, and attend seminars on the latest technologies. This year the event was May 15th to the 17th, but Nancy and I always come in early and stay later. Just a nice experience We camped at the local Kampgrounds of America with every campsite occupied by ham operators and their familys. It is always great to attend conventions and associate with others that have the same interest. The KOA is one of the better ones we have...

Jan 1, 2009 - Huntington, WVA & Dayton, OH

We travelled to Dayton today via Huntington, WVA. Huntington was the site of the DC-9 crash in November of 1970 that killed the entire Marshall University Football team, the coaches and a number of dignitaries from the town. The memorials at the student center in the center of the campus and at the stadium were very moving. We also went to Spring Hill Cemetary, the site of another memorial and the graves of six students from the crash whose remains could not be identified. The Marshall incident is documented in a movie titled "We are...

Sep 19, 2008 - Dayton, OH - Wright Patterson AFB

We had a leisurely, short drive to Wright Patterson AFB in beautiful weather. The scenery is pretty much the same in these mid-west towns, so Patti's cameras are not getting much use. At Wright Patterson the main gate is the only gate open 24/7 & the one we were supposed to enter. This gate of course is the one that is the farthest from the Fam Camp & is on the other side of the base from where we came from. When we got to the gate, it was "closed" due to a hazmat spill. We had to turn around & go back all the way around to get to the...

Aug 6, 2008 - A Trip Back to Dayton

Whenever we go back to Ohio, we always contact our friends to let them know we are in town and we all gather at Marion’s for pizza and to catch up on all that had happened since we all saw each other last. Not everyone could show up all the times we returned, but the one of the friends we could always count on being there was Mike Lonsert. Upon our arrival back in Ohio this past April, I contacted Mike to make arrangements to get together. It was at that time that Mike told us he had liver cancer. Mike and Don attended grade school...

Jul 9, 2008 - Ohio

Our people loaded us into the truck and headed over to Dayton, Ohio to see the Wright Brothers Memorial. They told us it was a disappointment. The house the Wright Brothers lived in and their bicycle shop were relocated to Dearborn, Michigan. They said Jackson Lake State Park was a disappointment, too. The "out house" stunk too bad to use and there were no showers there, either. What is the big deal? Missy and I don't need flush toilets and showers. The next day they went to the Bob Evans Homestead in Rio Grande, Ohio. They said that was...
