The New Mat Red Hat Ladies met Aug. 14, 2014 at Bob’s Place on the Ohio River. Bob and Kathy Eckert were exceptional hosts.
Bob, the chef, and Kathy, related stories of people who have passed through this area on the Ohio: George Washington, Merriwether Lewis and his dog Seamen, who caught squirrels in the Ohio River, Audubon of the beautiful bird pictures.
Kathy did the game, Let’s Make a Deal with much fun choosing and trading. Kathy has doll collections. She will have an exhibit at the Toy and Doll Museum at Marietta.
Bob was our captain as we had a pontoon ride past the islands Mill Creek and Wells, also sighting the bald eagle nest.

Hummingbirds, a time of sadness, when the little hummer hovers at your window saying good-bye; see you next spring.
