We started off the day with the breakfast part of the B&B where we are staying.
The owner of the establishment, who is also the cook and breakfast server, entertained us with her perspectives of the political shenanigans that go on in the USA. Although she is not a citizen, she has been in this country for over 20 years. Her views as a sort of innocent by-stander were quite interesting.
We then went over to Joan's and visited with her for a little while. Ross decided to play bossy big brother and lecture Joan on what she should be eating... or more like it, what she should not be eating. He also had a list of activity do's and don't's. I reminded Joan that she should remind Ross that he should practice what he preaches... just sayin'.
As we continued on our quest, we caught glimpses of the damage left behind from a recent tornado, saw lots of vineyards, and had a peek at Lake Erie which was off in the distance.
The details of the wild goose chase we went on looking for the other 5 stores will be discussed complete with photos in another post.
I have to say that this trip would probably be very enjoyable if it were another time, and under different circumstances.
I know that Ross feels grateful that he still gets to play bossy big brother to his little sister Joan.
And as always my heart and thoughts are constantly with Joe.
