Looking Forward to Two Dear Friends Visiting

The last three blog posts have been about the drama of my damaged house being repaired. Now I want to switch gears and talk about something cheering that cheers me and might cheer you.

This week I have two college friends arriving — one from Indiana and one from North Carolina. If you read my series of blog posts about my college professor Karl Peterson, you have already seen their pictures. But remember that the picture I am showing here dates back forty-two years to my marriage in 1982.









I have visited with my friend Judy, who lives in Indiana since my move to Ohio, and Judy has stayed at my Ohio home several times. My friend Ellen visited my husband and me when we lived in Arizona but has never seen my circa 1855 Ohio home.

Here is a favorite picture taken during Ellen’s visit to Ron & me in Arizona way back in 2015. We have seen each other since then — but she has never been to our Ohio home.

I am counting the hours until Judy and Ellen arrive. Ellen lives in North Carolina, and while we have visited over the years, she has never seen my Ohio home. I have some adventures planned, as well as some delicious places to dine. If you were having friends visit, where would you want to take them?

Do you have dear friends who you haven’t seen in a while?

    Thanks to you driving to Toledo, I was able to see you. How much better can it get ???? 🙂

  6. AECRM says:

    It was great seeing you in Toledo, but the visit was too short. Maybe one of these days you can come south & see some of the treasures here.

    Fun to see a photo of you and your friends from the time of your wedding in 1982. I’m sure all of you will have a great time during the visit. I have a lot of friends in Ohio and Michigan I haven’t seen in quite some time. Other friends have also moved away to places like California, Florida, and Georgia. We are scattered in the winds of autumn.

    Mike, such is life — old friends are scattered to the winds. But memories are good. I well remember you & Diane dancing at the wedding reception.

    Thinking of old friends scattered, so you maintain contact with Cathy Jackson. Haven’t seen her since a Witt reunion around 1986. Give me a shout sometime at 937 422 7946
