One of the carved pumpkins in brine

After the Donut Run, we stopped to see the scary plants and vegetable carvings. Makes our pumpkins look tame.
Cleveland/Mohican Weekend
November 2015

Along the Hemlock Gorge Trail at Mohican State Park

When Bob found he needed to attend the annual teachers' convention in Cleveland, Cheryl decided to take vacation and travel with him. During his off times, we found plenty to do including a visit to the Cleveland Botanical Garden, dinner and a show on Playhouse Square with Josie and John and a couple nights in a cabin near Mohican on the way home.
New House
December 2015

Londondale Road in Newark

Once we started looking, it didn't take us long to find a house that we love. We'll have more space (and more bathrooms) only a couple of miles from where we've spent the last 19 years. Closing was December 4th and moving may still be in progress depending on when you read this.
