From Clarence NY to Visit Friends in Alliance Ohio

Where are we today ?
        Just took our time this morning, bright and sunny and not too cold either. We are travelling 243 miles today so no need to rush, visiting with friends we know that used to live in Plattsville Ontario years ago. They said if we are in the area to stop by, so thats what we are doing. They still work though and won't be home until 5:15pm. 
        It was a nice days drive, no wind or rain and lotsa sunshine. We passed from NY State, through Pennsylvania for a bit then into Ohio. See map below.
Love these "Text Stop" areas on the interstate
243 miles (5 hours)

        Arrived here at 3 pm and parked on the street in front of their house, disconnect our towed as we need to turn the coach around in the morning (dead end street). Even opened out awning for a bit to see if it will dry out a bit from Saturdays rain.
        Well our friends Janice and Laurie arrived home at 5:15 pm and we jumped right into catching up with our two years of being away. A wonderful fire in the wood stove too to take the chill off.

         Now Laurie is an excellent cook and like me he loves to cook and entertain, so for our meal tonight he made an excellent potato soup, huge pan of awesome cabbage rolls, french bread and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Such an wonderful way to spend an evening with good friends and good food. Thanks guys!
Laurie, Janice and Suzie
perfect potato soup
love the cabbage rolls
pumpkin pie and whipped cream
          Now they have a wonderful dog here, Sandy and she just kept coming to Suzie and I sitting on the love seat. Here we thought she really liked us.
Sandy is friendly and loveable
         But alas as soon as we left she was right up on the loveseat and sound asleep.
I can just hear her, "nice to see you come,
but glad to see you go" 
       So nice to visit with friends and catchup again after a couple years. We had wonderful time, want to thank y'all for stopping on by for another visit, On the road in the morning heading further west, Indianapolis I think.

  1. Never quite know what's going on in a dog's head, but I'm sure she liked you. Briefly.

  2. Good to see you are headed south.

    1. We slowly make our way there, love taking our time.

  3. I can't believe you are in Alliance, Ohio. Paul played football for Mount Union. Our house is about 30 minutes away, and we aren't there. Just can't believe it.

    1. Small world isn't it?
      Marsha it is true
      You guys had to leave early this year or we would have stopped by, maybe another time or place we will meet up.

  4. It is nice to catch up with friends! It's also nice when you get to share a great meal with them. As far as your response to Paul and Marsha above, come on down to "Q" in January. They'll be there too.

    1. The Q in January is our plan, hopefully we can make it! And meet up with everybody.

  5. So, good to have friends, where you can stop in and they fix WONDERFUL MEALS for you... Is the 'green' stuff in the soup JALAPENOS?? Joyce makes a 'CLYDE ANDERSON' potato-soup that has MUY TIEMPO jalapenos in it; uuuummmm goood....(Clyde was a GOOD friend, R.I.P.)
    You better wait until everyones gone to work before you try to make that u-turn, George...
    Hope that beautiful weather holds for more HAPPY DAYS...

    1. The green stuff was chives, I added a bit of my own hot stuff.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
