Good Morning,

I’m up before the birds this morning; however, I’m not singing! A week ago I was up and on the road extra early as I headed to Marietta to meet our daughter Susan to drive on to Columbus. We knew we were going to need a whole lot of stamina to get us through the day and night ahead of us, so our first stop was the Cracker Barrel in Cambridge for a hearty breakfast. We knew it would take a lot of fuel for our bodies as we began our marathon of shopping T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Penny’s Outlet, and then on to “The Clothes Mentor” which is a consignment shop where the wealthy bring their clothing, shoes, jewelry, purses, etc. for resale. The hours flew by and Terry arrived to take us to dinner. We chose a Mexican restaurant which was quite noisy with so many people and the sound of the Mexican guitars, but the food was quite tasty, except when I say “no cheese” I get strange looks from the waiter. After dinner, it was time to head out to downtown Columbus and the Convention Center where my granddaughter Liz Mason had been selected to sing in the All Ohio Choir. Also chosen waMeridith Haught and Hannah Kitchen. The girls are all seniors at Marietta High School. Four hundred fifty were selected. The concert lasted one hour and then it was time to head home. I arrived home at 1:00 a.m. and even though I was tired, I thought I did well for a senior citizen.
