Old Diary

Cutting Time

Another productive day on Tuesday.  We had three different appointments at the hospital; we kept arriving early and they kept taking us early for our appointment so before you knew it we were all done before our third appointment was even scheduled.  Medical SymbolThe best news is that even though Peg does require a minor surgical procedure; it is minor, and it will be done on Thursday morning. With luck we’ll be on our way home some time on Friday — Goody, goody, goody!

While we might have blamed the trip on this medical situation the fact of the matter is that we were itching to get out and do something.  It was nice to see the mileposts passing and now that we’ve been here a couple days, gotten our schedule sorted we decided that we’d make a little road trip to Toledo to see her old stomping grounds — her dad’s house, the places she hung out around.  Once we leave Toledo we plan on dropping South to pick up the Natchez Trace Parkway — which route we’ll be able to run its entire distance.

We took time to run down to Illinois to exchange our iPass transponder.s137717855378605979_p26_i9_w1617 We could have waited until we headed East, but doing that would mean that our new transponder would not have replicated though the EZ Pass system and we’d show up as toll violations all the way to Ohio.  Not good.  This way we have the transponder.  The ID # will have propagated and we’ll be good to go.

Kathryn took half a day off today and we spent it together.  Partly we needed to get her signature on our Safe Deposit Box papers, and partly we just wanted to have the time together.

So, that’s about it for now.  Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.

    • Jim, there’s a lot more here than Tony Packo’s! We love some of the Middle Eastern places that have opened, specially Byblos. We have been sometimes patrons of Dolly & Joes — which has seen better days now, but used to be a really cute “Supper Club”. There’s some great BBQ joints, a few Greek Family places — though on the way into town I see one of our old fav’s is now closed. But, this trip is about sentiment and I don’t mind stopping at a palce that has seen better days for the memories.

      Oh — if you are out in Swanton — you HAVE TO TRY Loma Linda! A local Mexican fave with great ‘ritas. > >


      • We will look that up sometime! There was a Mexican mom and pop place in downtown Perrysburg that we loved when we lived there in 82 through 84. It has been a while since we’ve been there. I have a dang gluten allergy now, so I have to be somewhat selective in where I eat. So sad, indeed.
