Well, as you're headin' from Cleveland to Western NY, and you get about 10 minutes east of Erie on I90 (assuming you are taking I90), and you look off to the left because you can see Lake Erie again, that little podunk town you are looking across to see the lake.... that's where I live.

You are actually one of the ones I was hoping to meet--I just hadn't contacted you yet!

I'm still not sure how it could be 2 hours when it takes us 2 hours to get to Columbia , but I was just thinking the same thing--that we are pretty close to you. We could maybe meet somewhere in the middle, or some weekend we could just drive up there. I've been wanting James to see Aiken anyway, and you're not far from there.

We haven't thought it out that far yet, but we will be coming through Virginia.

You are slooowly working your way north. I should warn you, if you're coming up this way you need to get moving before the weather turns ugly. I suspect a long hard winter so you need to get in and out before October. LOL.

I know you're not coming up here yet, we'll see you sometime though. HUGS!!!

Yep, I'm afraid it will have to be computer and phone visiting for us for awhile, but we will make it up there as soon as we can!

I'm in Mentor, Ohio, so if you're driving east give a wave. If you stop by I'll give you a fresh loaf of NYT raisin bread. Have a safe trip.

You don't know how I drive.

I based it on the fact that I can get to Charlotte in just over 2 hours.

I can't believe they actually took me up on my offer to meet each other. What a delightful visit I had with James & Barbara. In very short order we were chatting away like we've been friends for many years. We met in a little restaurant that me and DW frequent several times each month, and they had a nice dinner while I had a piece of apple pie a-la-mode. They are now on their way to Erie, PA with a loaf of NYT Cinnamon Raisin bread to share with their next friends.

Thanks for a great evening of fellowship, and I hope the rest of your trip is safe and enjoyable.
